Are you open to opportunity? We understand that the South African marketplace is becoming increasingly competitive and commands that companies go the extra mile to stand out from the crowd. It is from this premise we have looked at how we can facilitate our subcontractors and suppliers, and assist you in pricing to the correct audience to help grow your business.
Introducing our New Open Quote Service:
Our new Open Quote Dashboard provides an up to date list of all current tenders our buyers are pricing. Now, you have the opportunity to price for as many of the tendering contracts as you choose. By taking a proactive rather than a reactive approach you are expanding your quote audience. If the initial contractor does not get awarded the work then there still is the potential of getting the work if another buyer in your price broadcast is awarded the contract.
It allows you to target your pricing audience – you may now submit prices to buyers of your choice and on tenders that best suit you. With the Bill of Quantities readily available, you can make more informed decisions about your business.
We provide all the information you will need to submit your prices to already awarded contractors, and this, of course, improves YOUR chances:
- Awarded Contractor
- Contact information
- Contract Value
- Contract Period
- Site occupation
Why should you Price Online?
Pricing online promotes your position in our directory when buyers are looking for Vendors, Contractors, and Subcontractors, yet another opportunity to out perform your competitors, it will also:
- Save You Time: With easy options to download, decline and archive RFQs, as well as the ability to send your prices to multiple buyers at once.
- Centralised Storage & No More Paper: You can now have a detailed record of all RFQs received, priced, declined and archived, kept safely online.
- Drawings: Easily accessible and ready to download where available.
Simply put, it’s easier, faster and more reliable!
