The idea of e-auctions is that offers are submitted and works or services are awarded electronically. Deerns assists clients with the establishment of fitting criteria and corresponding weighting factors for the services to be tendered, and processes these in tendering software.
Tenderers submit their information via internet, and the software in turn assesses their information. Subsequently, the price can be set via an e-auction. The actual market price is calculated in advance and is a guideline for the initial bid. After the initial bid, the system is open for a limited time and participants in the auction - without knowing each other''s identity - can make their bid. On the basis of the formula, the software calculates the classification of the individual tenderers after each bid.
After the auction, on the basis of the cost formula entered, the software can advise which submitter should be considered for the commission. The best price quality ratio thus wins. Electronic tendering is considered to be more transparent and objective than traditional tendering. However, there is a precondition; the approach to tendering, the protocol, the code of conduct, and the specifications must be clearly defined. As independent party Deerns is the ideal partner to guide the entire electronic tendering process from drafting specifications to final conclusion of contract.
