Computers are great at tasks like applying rules, keeping track of things, always knowing what time it is, and being completely impartial. All things that make for impeccable, efficient procurement. Combine that with the Cloud and you have the ideal platform for running a bidding event. Here’s how that technology works for you.

Etegri is a secure online service that streamlines the procurement process for goods, services and construction. It assists procurement professionals, developers and contractors to efficiently distribute information and documents about their opportunity and optionally to receive fully tabulated bids in return. New opportunities can be posted as either publicly available to anyone interested or by invitation only.

Contractors, vendors, and suppliers are able to quickly identify new opportunities and easily gain access to the information they need to respond. When enabled, they are also able to submit their bids online eliminating travel, delays and other challenges of submitting responses either in person or via fax or email.

Many opportunities are posted with a free access level that allows anyone interested to have full access to all information and documents. Others can be previewed for free but require a subscription ($10.00/mo. or $100/yr.) to gain access to all documents and features.
