Services – eProcurement for Private Sector

The adoption of new 'software as a service' tools are the mark of a 21st century company.

The Cloud is not just a topic for technology types - the broader implications of on-demand, web delivered Procurement services is a strategic discussion that belongs in the boardroom, not in the basement.

The process of calling for Tenders, Quotations, Expressions of Interest, Requests for Information etc. is a recognised method of procuring contract goods and services at the best price.

Typically, organisations will utilise the Tendering/Quotation process for a number of reasons. Some of these may include;

  • Driving ongoing total cost reductions
  • Optimising your supply base to balance costs
  • Managing compliance and mitigating risk
  • Reducing maverick spending and driving down contract risk
  • Maintaining auditable supply and contract management processes
  • Stimulating new product development with supplier innovations, just to mention a few.

Whilst there are enormous benefits to be had, it can be a time consuming and a manually intensive process. Complex issues including probity, transparency of process, buyer confidentiality and the potential to have the process challenged for breaches in process are demanding.

An effectively managed procurement process is able to account for these and other possibilities before they occur, saving you time, money and inconvenience.

Our technology provides a powerful and robust solution, whilst at the same time removing the huge administrative burden associated with producing and disseminating Bid, Tender and Procurement requests, the management of suppliers and subcontractors and the management of submissions.

  • Registration Of Interest (ROI)
  • Request For Information (RFI)
  • Request For Offer (RFO)

Meet one of our clients

I have been using the TenderSearch e-Procurement Portal now for almost three years, both in my current capacity at the AFL and as the Procurement Manager for the Melbourne Cricket Club at the MCG.

The ability to call for both open and private (invited) Tenders and quotes via our Portal, has had a huge impact in terms of the amount of time and effort required to successfully manage the demanding processes required.

The Portal is easy to use, for both the administration staff and the contractors and suppliers quoting for the work.

In utilising the Question and answer forum, contractors and suppliers can be sure of a prompt reply and the ability to post answers which are automatically forwarded to the registered suppliers save us time and ensures probity.

The Audit trail provided by using the Portal is invaluable in ensuring that our Auditors can be satisfied that our procurement processes stand up to scrutiny.

During my time in using the Portal, I have seen a genuine commitment from TenderSearch to seek feedback from us for improvements and with three upgrades in less than 12 months their continuous improvement efforts have been impressive.

Their service, both in terms of their user support and the support for our many suppliers and contractors has been outstanding.
