Reverse Auctions Datasheet

Benefits of implementing reverse auctions

Increase transparency and competitiveness in negotiations for better sourcing decisions

A reverse auction is a type of electronic auction (e-Auction) that involves a negotiation process where buyers ask suppliers to compete against each other by offering goods or services through eProcurement platforms, driving prices lower and securing the best value possible. 

Market volatility poses challenges for procurement teams when it comes to obtaining valuable market insights. Making sourcing decisions has become a complex task that requires professionals to strike a delicate balance between cost optimization and risk management. Unsuccessful negotiations can unnecessarily extend the process and lead to incomplete market insights, causing significant price differences and difficulties in comparing non-financial criteria.

Reverse e-auctions can enable fast market analysis and strengthen supplier relationships, providing a productive and ethical setting for suppliers, without compromising on sustainability.
