Reverse auctions. We find the ideal tool for your business.

Reverse Auctions Overview

Reverse auctions are the ideal tool for your business and have been around since the late 1990s. They are a proven negotiation method that invites your suppliers to compete to supply products or services to your company. Suppliers submit lower bids throughout the auction until the lowest bidder wins their contract. Reverse auctions are great for products where price is the main differential , such as stationery, uniforms, consumables, packaging, and more.
