  • There are must be fields in b2btender e-RFQ template which are e-Calendar, Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA , Invitation to e-RFQ, e-RFQ Rules, Scope, Pricing, and Compliance Questions.
  • Supplier should approve first the NDA. Only after committing to the NDA, supplier becomes eligible to access to the content of e-RFQ.
  • Once the supplier reviews teh content of e-RFQ, it has to accept or decline e-RFQ invitation before the deadline as set by the buyer.
  • Declining means that supplier will not make an offer. Acceptance means that supplier commits to make an offer.
  • b2btender’s flexible e-RFQ structure allows buyer to e-RFQ for multi product(s) and service(s) simultanously. Furthermore, the format of the compliance questions are designed in such a way that the buyer can get net and sharp answers from the suppliers without any uncertainity.
  • Buyer can ask for two different pricing structure within the same e-RFQ; the first one is the most common one named unit pricing based where supplier gives the quantity required and asks for a unit price from the supplier.
  • The second one is known as quantity based where supplier advices a total fixed budget to the supplier and asks for the quantity that the supplier may deliver. At any point in time, buyer can see how many suppliers the e-Rfq was sent, how many signed the NDA, how many committed to participate, and how many answered the e-RFQ.
  • Evaluation screen of e-RFQ is amazing such a way that all the answers (pricing and complaince questions) from suppliers are reported next to each other at the same screen to the buyer. This helps buyer to compare the suppliers in the fastest and the most reliable way.
