Entering a new tender
Select the NEW TENDER button on the middle navigation button to enter a new tender. A tender includes anywhere from one to hundreds of services. Our standard supported services include Point-to-Point connectivity, Point-to-Multipoint connectivity, Internet Access, Colocation, and IP-Transit. Once you have entered a service you will be directed to the MODIFY TENDER page where you can enter more services or publish the tender with all the services you have entered.
Publishing a tender
You can notify suppliers that you have just published a tender. This is either to email addresses or your predefined contacts which you can select from dropdown lists. Tenders are either public or private. Public tenders are available to be viewed by every user. Private tenders can only be viewed and bid on by those users that you have invited to bid on your tender. Private tenders can be changed to be public but public tenders cannot be changed to be private.
Checking on the status of your tenders
Select the TENDER button on the middle navigation button to check on your published tenders. On the page select the checkbox SHOW MY TENDERS ONLY to see your own tenders.
Selecting a supplier and giving feedback
When looking at your tenders on the TENDER page you can select the service that suppliers have bid on. The Pricing Overview page will give you the pricing of the different bidders. Here you can give direct feedback via dropdowns to the suppliers. Note that when you select a supplier by choosing SELECT THIS SUPPLIER the other suppliers that you have not given feedback will have their status changed to A SUPPLIER HAS BEEN SELECTED. Please take the time to give more detailed feedback to the suppliers that have not been selected.
Why join? I have my contacts already
This is the most frequent question we have from sales. The answer is, yes you have contacts--and we're sure they are solid. However the pressure on the purchase side to be successful is just as great as on the sales side to achieve sales targets. The purchasers have to process more tenders / RFP's / pricing requests, achieve bigger year of year savings, make sure the best price / solution is bought. That is where we help. With a single solution to price all data services we make the job of the purchasing professional easier. We augment and enhance their ability, functionality and speed. Our tag line is Get Better Prices Faster (TM) so purchasing will use our tool simply because we are there to help and you have to decide if you wish to provide bids to outstanding requests as well.
Finding a tender
Select the TENDER button on the middle navigation button to check on tenders. You can then search the database for tenders and requested services that meet your qualification criteria (service, geography, customer name).
Bidding on a tender
Once you have found the tender and service you wish to bid on you can review the details and bid at the bottom of the page. On this page you can have all of your pricing details in one place as well as make notes to yourself and price the service.
I want "standard requests" to be bid automatically
We can do this. Talk with us about integrating our on-net list and/or price books so the system will automatically bid for you/your company. The result will be that you will be with standard pricing (special for key accounts) and be notified when the system made a bid for you. With this solution in place you'll be able to work on projects higher up in the value chain.
Personal Preferences
Contact details include your e-mail address, password, postal address. Personal Settings including your preferred language, calendar week, date format, and number format. E-mail alerts can be set up for when purchasing receives a bid as well as when sales win or loses a bid. Files that you use repeatedly are uploaded here. These are files that you use repeatedly such as service descriptions, T&C, network maps, etc. Default settings for delivery/SLA and quote details. This includes details such as delivery times, SLA, currency, payment terms, quote type, contract terms.
Locations
Save the locations you frequently use in your preferred locations list. You can then easily load this location when you are publishing tenders. Locations you should save are POPs and customer locations you repeatedly need connectivity to. Look for POP lists from popular carriers to add to your personal list.
Note that deleted personal lists cannot be recovered.
From your personal list you can define a default location that will always be loaded as a default A-END location. Of course you can change this.
Contacts
Contact lists either have a single e-mail address associated with their name or a list of contacts. You should have lists like SUPPLIERS FOR (SERVICE) IN (LOCATION). These contact lists will be shown as dropdowns when you publish a tender. That way you can easily notify all your suppliers that you have published a tender.
Delegates
If you work in a team you may wish to define delegates to take care of your requests while you are out or you may need to take care of someone else’s requests when they are out. You can easily give and request READ or READ AND WRITE access from colleagues.
