Streamline the tendering process – MAKE A DIFFERENCE Tendering is a common and structured process that has been automated in recent years with mixed results. The reason for the mixed results is most systems focus on an automated control of the process and not on creating transparency and an effective interface with the suppliers and the buyer. It does not matter if 1 or 1000 tenders are required for your operations, using SBConnect provides the ability to build transactions, structure tender documents, link tender items and build the questionnaires for a specific tender in minutes rather than hours. The assessment and evaluation of supplier responses - viewing their documents, questionnaires responses and costs is simple and provides all the information to make an informed decision. When creating your tender you can import tender items, which could be labor, materials, services, equipment etc. from excel that will automatically populate the tender item tables. Building questionnaires is simple with the ability to duplicate and edit the library of questions. Once you create a Transaction [for provision of equipment, good or services] its there for future use. Complete control and justification for award with recommendation reports and tender award committee approval steps.
Supplier self managed pre-qualification and compliance interface. All compliance requirements defined in account and published for supplier responses and management. Review and approval steps with visual colour coding and scores cards. Ongoing compliance management of your requirements for duration of qualification periods.
