The eTendering solution that your organisation chooses should improve the efficiency of your buying strategy.
New technology has transformed the public sector’s procurement processes and has also allowed portal providers to provide many extra services that can benefit users.
We have created a checklist that should help your organisation to assess how its current eTendering solution is performing.
How well do you know the eTendering system that your organisation Is using? To get a good grasp of all the tools included with your solution it is important that your provider offers new users demo training and following up any new system development release with webinar training.
When your organisation chooses an eTendering solution, an expert from the provider should be working with you from the very start. Support is vital when it comes to new processes. Make sure that you are working with an account manager who will enable your organisation to implement not just a new solution but a new procurement strategy.
In the past, we have worked with organisations that have described their former system as “clunky” and “hard to manage”. The eTendering solution that your organisation uses should only enhance the performance of your employees, not make things more complicated.
Your organisation will not have the time to deal with technical queries from suppliers. Choosing a procurement portal that gives its users and their suppliers access to a technical helpdesk will make an enormous difference to the efficiency of your organisation.
