CONCORD, Mass., Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RapidBuyr (www.RapidBuyr.com), the daily deal site catering exclusively to small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) with deep discounts on B2B products and services, today announced it has acquired Los Angeles-based B2B weekly deal site BizDeals.com.
This strategic acquisition adds hundreds of new national sellers to the RapidBuyr network, enhances the company's business services category and expands the RapidBuyr customer base, community, social assets and distribution footprint. Meanwhile, existing BizDeals customers can take advantage of RapidBuyr's large and growing community of SMBs to find resources, savings and recommendations for products and services they need, as well as gain access to a broader range of deals offered on a more frequent basis.
"We've been impressed with RapidBuyr's leadership and rapid growth in the business deals space," said Mark Reese, Founder and CEO of BizDeals. "We're confident that our loyal small business customers will enjoy the benefits of membership in the expanded community created by this combination, and we look forward to offering deals from our wide variety of merchant partners to the RapidBuyr community."
RapidBuyr offers deep discounts of up to 80 percent on vital B2B/SMB products and services to an audience of some 30 million across the country through its exclusive partnerships with business-focused media outlets including American City Business Journals, TechTarget, BuyerZone and more. In addition to local/regional merchant deals in nearly 10 major U.S. markets, RapidBuyr members benefit from group-buying power to take advantage of exceptional national offers from some of the most well-known brands in the industry on products and services ranging from technology products, SaaS and cloud offerings, and IT outsourcing to marketing services, meeting space, staffing assistance, subscriptions, office furniture and equipment, travel and events.
"We are thrilled to welcome BizDeals and its member network into the growing RapidBuyr community," said RapidBuyr co-founder and chief marketing officer Darr Aley, who noted that BizDeals.com is the second such B2B deal site to come into the RapidBuyr fold in recent months. The company entered into an exclusive strategic partnership with OfficeArrow in September. "By driving consolidation in the business deals space, RapidBuyr is building momentum, becoming well-positioned to bring even better deals and better service to our customers and to our merchants," Aley said.
