Key Features

Scanmarket's intuitive user interface is designed to be easy for everyone from neophyte to expert user. The system is so easy that most users don't need training until they get to some of the most advanced functions.

Making the system easy to use addresses one of the most serious issues for any eSourcing platform; how to make sure that the system actually gets used. No matter how much functionality a system has, it doesn't generate any value unless it gets used on real projects.

Users can configure their own interface to set it up in a manner that best suits how they work.

Multiple auction types including Japanese, Dutch, Reverse, Factored, Forward and others

Unique login's specific to each event or project provide multiple benefits.

  1. Some of your stakeholders may not be frequent users of the system. By providing a unique login, the stakeholder does not have to keep track of system login's for your system in addition to their own and those of their other trading partners.
  2. Login assistance in systems without unique login's like Scanmarket constitute the vast majority of I/T support requests. Decreasing this support requirement enables your team to spend more of their time moving projects forward.
  3. Unique login's allow you to more closely monitor participation in your events.
Flexible services to support execution, design, strategy and volume
