Frequently Asked Questions

1. How is using TenderBoard to manage my purchases better?

TenderBoard helps you to improve your productivity by digitizing and automating your purchases and RFX events from a central location. Further, we make sourcing painless by automagically matching your purchase requests to relevant suppliers, cutting your sourcing times down to zero if you wish. Finally, have peace of mind in the management of your purchases as everything is logged and accessible via audit trails.

2. What is a purchase request?

You create a purchase request when you are looking to purchase some goods or services. It contains information about what you require and other information that suppliers typically need when providing quotations, including when you require the proposals by, who to address it to, and where items should be delievered to. Once completed, you can invite suppliers to provide quotations or let TenderBoard manage the entire sourcing process for you. Suppliers will then provide quotations based on the information they receive in the purchase request.

3. What should the value of a deal be before I use TenderBoard?

TenderBoard is designed to support deals of all sizes. We have no restrictions on deal value or how many suppliers are invited for each deal (yes, you can invite only 1 supplier if you choose to).

4. What can I do to ensure I get the best quotes?

In order to provide accurate quotes, suppliers need to understand what your needs are. The best way to do this is to provide as much information in the purchase requests as possible. If necessary, attach images or documents to your purchase requests to provide detailed specifications. Of course, do reply clarifications that suppliers may send about your requirements.

5. I am not sure about the exact details of the product I need, can I still use TenderBoard?

Sure! Buyers use us not only to manage their purchases, but also as a tool to research goods and services they are not familiar with and to get in touch with companies who might be able to help them discover appropriate solutions.

6. My suppliers are not TenderBoard subscribers, can they still participate in my deal that is hosted on TenderBoard?

Definitely! Any supplier that is invited by you via our platform, TenderBoard subscriber or not, is able to view your deal and submit their quotation on the TenderBoard platform. They can even do so without signing up with an account with us! If you have already received a quotation from them and do not wish to trouble them to submit again, feel free to forward the quote you received (whether it's an image, email, PDF, Document etc) to hello@tenderboard.biz. We'll upload their quote to the relevant deal in your account so that you can compare it with the rest of the quotations received.

7. I only need 1 quote, should I still use TenderBoard to manage my purchase?

Short answer: Yes, you should! Our system reduces your procurement overheads. Every purchase you make incurs overheads and for small value purchases, these can be a large percentage in relation to the purchase price. Further, by capturing all your spend in a single platform makes it easier for you to track and analyse your expenditure.

8. I want a quote only from a specific supplier. Should I still use TenderBoard?

Of course! TenderBoard helps you manage your purchasing regardlessly of whether you are inviting specific supplier(s) to participate in the deal or making it open to new suppliers. If you have already received a quotation from your supplier and do not wish to trouble them to submit again, feel free to forward the quote you received (whether it's an image, email, PDF, Document etc) to hello@tenderboard.biz. We'll upload their quote to the relevant deal in your account so that you can compare it with the rest of the quotations received.

9. Must I buy from your Suppliers? Do I have to award to a supplier sourced via TenderBoard?

While our platform sources quotations from relevant suppliers for you, these aren't "our suppliers". The platform recommends suppliers based on relevancy to your deal, not if they are subscribers to TenderBoard. There is no obligation to purchase from a supplier sourced via TenderBoard - however, our Terms of Use require that you award the tender through the TenderBoard platform (your chosen supplier may submit his bid to you via TenderBoard or we can help upload his quotation for you) - this will allow us to work with your supplier in future and provide them with more business opportunities.

10. Is there an obligation to buy when I create a request and receive quotes from suppliers?

No, there is absolutely no obligation to purchase. We encourage Buyers to use TenderBoard when they are seriously looking to make purchases, but they are never locked into any deal simply by issuing a purchase request or by receiving quotes.

11. Do suppliers need to pay to submit bids or if they win?

Invited suppliers do not pay to submit a bid, nor do they pay a transaction fee if they win. In fact, suppliers do not even need to register with TenderBoard to submit a bid to your deal when they are invited to participate.

12. I have evaluated the submitted proposals for my RFQ/tender. What do I do next?

Once you have selected a supplier to award the RFQ/tender to, you can award the deal through TenderBoard. When you do so, you can also attach your Purchase Order to the supplier and send them a message to arrange the follow on actions.

13. Do I need to update TenderBoard when I have awarded to a Supplier?

Yes. Our system also keeps suppliers updated of the progress.

14. I have feedback on a supplier. What should I do?

Please send all feedback and suggestions to hello@tenderboard.biz.

15. How and where do I get support?

"Our guides and tutorials section is a good source of information should you need some guidance on how to use TenderBoard. If you are facing technical difficulties, send us an e-mail at hello@tenderboard.biz and we will respond by the next Working Day. Subscribers on the Team or Office plans will be assigned an account manager for urgent support requests via phone."
