Frequently Asked Questions
What can you purchase using eAuction software?
There are very few limitations when it comes to which products and services can be negotiated via e-auction tools. We recommend considering the areas below when evaluating if a category is suitable for use with auction software.
- Spend - Is the size of the contract sufficient enough to stimulate interest from suppliers and competition in the form of bidding?
- Specification - For auction software to be effective, specifications should be clearly written and unambiguous. This ensures that the suppliers know what they are bidding for.
- Suppliers - Are there enough suppliers in the marketplace to take part in the negotiation? The more suppliers you have, the more bids will be generated during the auction, and the better the savings you will achieve.
- Supply - Is the market supply competitive and with surplus capacity?

The majority of e-auctions run for less than one hour, cutting out days or weeks from the traditional one-on-one negotiation cycle time. Copy and re-run e-auctions with prebuilt templates, and automate bid analysis and reporting.
