Procure with confidence

Built by procurement professionals, our platform is designed to ensure suppliers can easily submit compliant bids, while making it easy for you to move a procurement from start to finish.

Notification templates

Save time by setting up customized notification templates with prepopulated fields. Allow the platform to send out email notifications, award letters and more, so that you don't have to.

Customized dashboard

Create custom drop-down lists, bid commodities, departments and more to improve consistency and  streamline the project-making process.

Project templates

Create consistency and streamline your process by developing and managing project templates. Copy closed projects, make edits and post quickly for projects that re-occur annually.

Full control

Only provide permissions to the users that need it, with the ability to create and manage user permissions for each project.

Reporting and auditing

Keep track of every step in your procurement journey. From timestamped emails when questions or bids are received to a central hub where procurement teams can quickly review all open procurements, you’ll have unlimited oversight of your procurements at your disposal. Plus, you’ll be able to export reports and detailed procurement documents for auditors, and send it directly to their inbox.
