2. GOVERN the SOURCING PROCESS: we manage all the process of Request for Information, Request of Quotation, Bills of Quantities analysis, Comparative Maps of the offers, giving to our retailers clients a pre-analyzed scenario with some strategies suggested.

In any case, the comparison of the offer is not just a matter of comparing the total amount, but analyzing in detail all the lines of the bills of quantities to understand if all the suppliers have understood exactly the object of the quotation making comparison line by line.

We can manage in less than 15 days the awarding of a new free standing point of sales.

3. AWARDING: we can use multiple rounds of RFQs or we can also use a very powerful tool of eAuction. VORTAL has all the eAuction types from forward to reverse eAuction.

4. VENDOR EVALUATION: Our Supplier Truster module permits retailers to manage the vendor rating and performances of the entire supplier base, starting from the construction companies that need to have many documentations up do date. We support retailers verifying the document compliances of the suppliers.

With Supplier Truster you will be able to Qualify Suppliers, Control their status, Validate them and Access to all the documentation and information on Suppliers.
