e-Auctions

Secure end-of-life disposal for your purchases upfront with our standalone e-Auctions software.

The In-tend e-Auctions module can be integrated for use as a stage within a procurement process, or as a standalone module in its own right.

For further transparency and better information control, buyers will see suppliers' live bidding activity with the assistance of tables and charts.

Forward auctions allow for end-of-life asset disposal.

Auction Types

There are two main auction types that can be used to secure end-of-life disposal for items within this module. Both approaches are configurable, and In-tend can assist the user in setting up the best fit for your business. Managed auctions on your behalf can be facilitated, if required.

Forward Auction

A Forward Auction is perhaps regarded as the more typical auction process. In a Forward Auction, suppliers will increase their bids in an online competitive process and the sale is granted to the highest bidder when the window for bids is closed.

Reverse Auction

A Reverse Auction uses an approach where suppliers compete to provide the lowest value they would accept to be paid for a good or service. The supplier with the lowest bid wins the auction.

Flexibility

Auctions can be tailored to suit the requirements of the user.

Transparency

Buyers can dictate the amount of information suppliers can view.
