No more incomplete or late offers!

Negometrix allows buyers to consolidate all bids in one place, and keep track of submission status with color coded indications that show offer status. Suppliers are guided to ensure their offer is complete and submitted on time.

Every week we will share a feature of our software, stay tuned!

More security and efficiency in receiving bids.

Printing and sending an offer by mail costs between $200-1000, has uncertain delivery times, allows for mistaken location, and the process of opening and distributing each supplier bid costs the buyer time. All of this is solved with a digital platform.

Managing evaluations and evaluators.

In the evaluation phase buyers are able to oversee evaluation progress, assign focused evaluation roles and review evaluator responses.

Mandatory evaluator comment.

Negometrix allows buyers to make evaluator comment mandatory. Ensure that evaluators provide explanation of response, further detail or additional commentary with this feature!
