an e-Tendering System (or Electronic Tendering System) facilitates the complete tendering process from the advertising of the requirement through to the placing of the contract. This includes the exchange of all relevant documents in electronic format.
Nowadays, large organizations usually have to handle multiple procurement needs by applying different kinds of information systems developed by various suppliers. Such process will become inevitably long and cumbersome in conventional e-tendering systems when the categories of products are not well sorted out.
HOW TO IMPROVE?
In order to realize better cost savings and increase efficiency, replacing the manual paper-based tender procedures by electronic-facilitated system has become an essential element in process re-engineering. With a highly automated e-Tendering system, tender specification, advertising, tender aggregation as well as the evaluation and placing of the contract can be prepared at ease.
Manual tender processes can be long and cumbersome, often taking three months or longer, which is costly for both buyer and supplier organisations.
Our e-Tendering System developed by Procure.az, replace these manual paper-based tender processes with electronically facilitated processes based on best tendering practices to save time and money.
Buyers are able to manage the tenders coming in, with all tenders stored in one place. Buyers can cut and paste data from the electronic tender documents for easy comparison in a spreadsheet. Evaluation tools can provide automation of this comparison process.
Procure.az e-Tendering System offers an opportunity for automating most of the tendering process: from help with preparing the tender specification; advertising; tender aggregation; to the evaluation and placing of the contract.
