Tendering Electronic Business Solutions for Today's

What is Tendering?
 
The process of tendering has long been a recognised method of procuring contract goods and services. For various reasons, potential suppliers use tendering as a fair and equitable process of bidding for prospective works. Some of these include:
  • to drive ongoing total cost reductions
  • to optimize supply base to balance costs
  • to manage compliance and mitigate risk
  • to reduce maverick spending
  • to drive down contract risk
  • to maintain auditable supply and contract management processes
  • to stimulate new product development with supplier innovations.
But despite the enormous benefits which come with the tendering process, it can still be a time-consuming and manually intensive process. Issues such as probity, transparency of process and buyer confidentiality complicate the process further. If one is able to manually and effectively manage the tendering process and account for all of these potential issues before they occur, you will end up saving time, money and effort. If only it were that simple. Human errors can still occur and the amount of manpower required to ensure a perfectly maintained tender database is immense.
