Why require a physical delivery of a tender document if you can accept it electronically? Physical delivery requires that documents are printed, properly bound, carefully enclosed in an envelope, correctly annotated and must be delivered to the single tender box at the client's address.
The ability of getting a tender in sometimes relates to how quickly you are able to drive! Electronic submissions eliminate all the pitfalls of physical tender delivery, making it cheaper and greener to submit a tender.
The SABEeX Tender Box further ensures that submissions are correctly received, and cannot be tampered with before opening, or afterwards. Only authorised persons from the client will have access to submissions, and only after the closing time, ensuring transparency in the process. All information is secured away from prying eyes, ensuring that there is no compromise in tender submissions being leaked to the opposition.
Evaluation panels can have access to all submissions, no matter where the individuals are located, reducing the requirement for meetings, and large secure rooms where the evaluations have to be done.
This solution is ready for implementation, and we are working towards including it in the SABEeX Delivery Management System.
