The goal of the system is to make it as fast and easy as possible to post and find remnants. Instead of being the middlemen, the goal of RemnantSwap is to simply provide a Web site as a service to the industry. The company does not charge for the service, and it doesn’t take a percentage of the transaction.
When buying granite, users simply search for the granite color that they are looking for. Results are then ranked by how close they are to the buyer’s location. The user can then call or e-mail the fabricator that is selling the remnant.
To sell a remnant, users need to create an account at www.remnantswap.com/signup to enter their location and contact information. They can then enter their remnants into the system. If the seller is already using a spreadsheet or software to track the pieces, they can simply copy and paste them in all at once. If material is being tracked by hand, they can be hand-entered into the system. Over 10,000 remnants have already been listed on the site, and that number is expected to increase significantly in the coming months.
