AliSourcePro acts like a "minmarketplace" on the Alibaba.com parent site, allowing buyers with specific product requirements to post requests for price quotes from accredited suppliers. By integrating various steps of the online sourcing process into a single place, the requests can be launched in just a few steps, saving buyers the trouble of running product searches and browsing The Alibaba team through pages of results to screen suppliers. Buyers are promised a list of up to 10 approved quotations from Alibaba.com within 48 hours. Buyers can also compare quotations, contact suppliers, request samples, place orders and even arrange a pre-shipment product inspection all on the same platform.

Only $99.99. www.B L U E T I G E R U S A.com Booth #37117 fieras.saah@bluetigerusa.com VENETIAN BALLROOM BOOTH 70210 PhoneSoap is talking dirty at this year's International CES. The K ick st a r ter-launched start-up is bringing its line of smartphone-sanitizing products to International CES and offering free phone sanitizing to anyone who stops by its booth. PhoneSoap's flagship product is the PhoneSoap Charger, a universal phone charging case that simultaneously kills 99.9 percent of all surface germs on a smartphone by exposing it to ultraviolet-C lighting. Two UV-C lamps produce a specifc wavelength of light that passes through the cell walls of bacteria and viruses to impair their DNA. Once the DNA is compromised, the cells die and can no longer cause infections or disease. The PhoneSoap Charger even kills so-called "superbugs" that have developed resistance to the chemicals and antibiotics commonly used in the past, the company said. The process uses no heat, liquid or chemicals and is safe for all electronics. The PhoneSoap Charger retails for $49.95. CESWEB.ORG
