Module "Biddings"


The VisionR module "Biddings" is used to manage specifications and offers. Specifications and offers are structured in positions. Positions have a hierarchical structure of subpositions. One or more offers from vendors can be attached to a specification. Specifications can be used to describe services or products, which are to be acquired and comparing of offers is used to determine the best bidder in terms of price and performance. Offers are directly linked to invoices. Prices and amounts of offering positions are visible on creating an invoice. Specifications and offers can be attached to contracts (e.g. maintenance contracts, cleaning contracts). Scanned documents can be attached to specifications and offers. Standard interfaces can be used to import customer specifications and vendor offers.
