Tender Management System

The Tender Management System is an e-Tendering System which facilitates the complete tendering process with the exception of advertising. This includes the exchange of all relevant documents in electronic format.

Developed by Reallies the Tender Management System  replaces manual paper-based tender processes with electronically facilitated processes based on best tendering practices to save time and money.

Reallies are able to manage the tenders coming in, with all tenders stored in one place. Reallies can utilise the evaluation tools to allow scoring of submissions across different departments in different locations.

Benefits include:

  • Reduced tender cycle-time in line with the Public Contract Regulations 2015
  • Faster response to questions and points of clarification during the tender period
  • Reduction in the labour intensive tasks of receipt, recording and distribution of tender submissions
  • Reduction of the paper trail on tendering exercises, reducing costs to both Reallies, our customers and suppliers
  • Improved audit trail increasing integrity and transparency of the tendering process
  • Provision of quality management information
