Stop fearing audits and auditors
Cooperate with your trusted forwarders and carriers only
The Auction and Tender module – receiving very favourable opinions from our clients – is an integral part of the SOOT system. By gathering information in one central database, it enables the company to obtain the top market offers for transportation services.
Conditional on the procedure methodology adopted by the company, the system can support making auctions for bids for annual transportation contracts or for one-off transports only. In the system, you can inquire about the transportation costs during the auctions where invited forwarders and carriers bid lower and lower.
The system is very easy to use by users and is transparent for auditors (documents are created automatically after each auction and tender procedure).
The system allows logistics officers to ultimately choose the most favourable bids through automating future transfer of transport orders to selected forwarders and carriers.
The feedback received from the clients using the Auction and Tender module of SOOT reads that:
One curiosity: During one of the auctions held by our client, carriers bade over 300 times. Would anyone have inquired that many times about the price, bargaining with bidders manually only (by e-mail or over a phone)?
you certainly need SOOT – a flexible, multilingual application with a cutting-edge user interface and friendly licensing procedure.
