What is Reverse Auction

A reverse auction is a strategic sourcing event in which suppliers bid to provide products and services which helps buyer in effective price discovery, gaining in-depth supplier market knowledge and driving price reductions.

Avaali’s Reverse Auction module allows enterprises to create, conduct and deliver reports for closed auctions and in turn automatically initiate the supplier onboarding processes for chosen vendors. Reverse auctions significantly bring down procurement cost for companies as bid prices are continuously brought down during live auctions, where vendors have visibility of where their ranking is against submitted prices.

Why Auction as a Service

Enterprises are conscious of the investments they make in technology and would like to maximize returns from their investments. For enterprises who are clear about the number of auctions they would typically initiate in a year and if it is less than 360 auctions a year (30 or less auctions every month) they would significantly benefit from this offering wherein the solution is provisioned as a software as a service offering entailing limited investments from them.

Auction as a Service is a subscription based, plug and play solution for you to conduct your auctions easily and benefit by reducing your procurement cost.
