You have to be in it to win it!

Why wait for business? As an Open Quotes subscriber, a Vendor or a Supplier listed on our database, you have the opportunity to engage with Contractors who are looking for services or products that are within your scope of work, allowing you to submit your pricing directly.

Once registered you will receive a Username and a Password via email. Log in frequently to see what is available to you, so you do not miss out on any opportunities.

If you are an Open Quotes subscriber:

You can receive the award information for all the Requests For Quotations that were sent to you, regardless of whether you priced or not, this gives you a second chance to price, for the successful bidder.  These will display in the Purple block on your Vendor page.

Access to bills that contractors are currently pricing that have not been sent to directly, you choose whether you want to price on these or not. These will display in the Red block on your Vendor page.

For All Vendors:

View a history of all your requests for quotations. These will display in the Blue block on your Vendor page.

Manage your company details online: i.e CIBD, BEE, Description, Serviceable Regions, Trades, Contacts, etc.

Send emails with your logo and/or profile attached from our directory to market your business.

View and interact with the icons and functionality on your Vendor Home Page. Respond to requests for quotations online and improve your indicator so that you maintain a high indicator in order to have the highest visibility on the Buyers search results.

Price online, this saves you time and money.

Take advantage of the options to download full BOQ’s, drawings, and specifications, as well as upload documents to the buyers.

Ensure that you respond to the contractor timeously, take heed of the respond-by-date which is stipulated on the request for quote, thereby increasing your chances of having your prices included in the tender in turn increasing your opportunity to secure work if the contractor is a successful bidder.
