FAQ

HOW DOES IT WORK?

We've developed a simple 3-step process to help you save money

  1. Gather Data: This is all we need from you: Part Numbers (and/or specs), Current Prices, Volumes, and anything else you think is helpful

  2. Sourcing: This is what we do. We go quote your business to our network of suppliers

  3. Split the Savings: We take a % of the annual savings. Visit our pricing page for the simplest pricing structure ever

And that's it!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

We're happy to rush through 1-2 parts in a day or two, but for most larger projects, we can typically give you a rough savings number after 2-4 weeks and do a final presentation shortly after that.

We utilize custom built software to help reduce this time frame and we're constantly making improvements.

WHAT DOES LUTELLO MEAN?

Lutello is the Finnish translation of the word "catalog". Catalogs and Manufacturing have been like Peanut Butter and Jelly. We aim to move the industry into the 21st century by reducing your reliance on them.

HOW MUCH CAN I SAVE?

This varies widely, but you should expect savings between 15-30%. Commodity items like raw material are typically on the lower end. Items from big-box suppliers like Grainger, McMaster Carr, Fastenal, or MSC are typically on the higher end.
