Very good experience with Market Dojo

Great experience in using Market Dojo with brilliant and quick support. This is a smart tool which simplifies a lot the process for complex projects! I am sure the tool will grow even more in the future, assuring it a great future and success.

Pros

The team and support is really great, always trying to find the solution which is the best for your business.
The simplicity, it is not overcomplicated, do the job well and you do not need to spend ages to build your events
The improvements which are released regularly and take customer remarks into consideration
The "Sandpit" tool which allows you to test your event as if you were a bidder and adjust accordingly, in live.
Project stakeholders can access event you want to share with them, and you can also include access restrictions
The different ways to access the content (Documents repository, into the event question directly, via Excel download, etc... )

Cons

The scoring for an event with a lot of questions and bidders since so far I believe scoring is only possible per bidder rather than per question across all the bidders, to keep the same scoring logic.

Hi there, Thank you for your review and feedback. We are pleased that you like our ease of use and the ability to test in the sandpit feature. You are quite right, at the moment scoring is only possible by bidder and not by question. This is however something that we currently have in our pipeline to rectify. We will certainly be in touch once this issue has been resolved. Thanks again for the review. Kind regards, Alun Rafique, CEO Co-Founder

Procurement in the Cloud

Not only the solution is great but also the people have been very helpful. Another thing that makes Marketdojo stand out in the crowd is their unique and affordable pricing model that shows that they understand the mechanics of the Cloud. There is absolutely no business risk as the rewards are a multifold of the fee that needs to be paid. Marketdojo also leverages the meta data from their SAAS platform to help their customers to see what the best practices are by publishing these views, which helps to augment results. Moreover they continue to enhance the platform and they gave created an Api to allow for integration with third party platforms.

Pros

My first E sourcing project as a consultant was for a firm that used one of the leading ERP sourcing solutions. This solution was complicated due to the endless features for which purpose we needed external consultants who were proficient with the system. As I saw that e-procurement software drives efficiency, one of my first thoughts was whether this could not be done any simpler.
So I conducted a Market survey and I encountered Marketdojo. I was stunned by the user friendliness of their application that could be tested in their sandbox. Conclusion I did not need any additional consultants to drive an E sourcing event.

Cons

There are really no cons. The real cons are the people who do not understand that SAAS helps them immediately to establish savings in their procurement process, without really worrying about whether the software is a fit within the company. It is a highly secured SAAS solution, that does not pose any threat to company' s resources and there is absolutely no customer lock-in.

Easy, simple and professional platform

We had a challenge that was to put our supplier to compete in a fair and comparable way. Then we discover the reverse auctions and we look for a good platform that can be used and that have a fair price. Market dojo give us a very good price with a very good and profesional platform that worked great the day of the auction. Also we just need to make big purchases in which we can use this type of process some times per year but almost all the other platforms only offered year round contracts, Market dojo charges per month or per use so it works great for us.

Pros

The platform was very easy to use, the idea of running as a trail your own auction to verify that everything is correct is very good. Also it looks very professional to our suppliers because the platform send the emails to them and also beacuse you can put you logo on the platform.

Cons

I think the graphs and the way you can compare the unit price because in our case the most important thing we wanted to compare is the unit price and not the total amount of the bid.

Review on MD e-sourcing

Pros

Easy to use. It’s not take long time to create a tender on the system.

Cons

It is not flexible to adjust information. For example, if the bidders type wrong name of company, they cannot change after signing in.

Sopra Steria's experience with Market DoJo

The overall experience using Market DoJo software and working with the team has been very positive and very rewarding. Our new Supplier On Boarding process has been singled out as a successful innovation by external auditors in the race to continual improvement Supplier Relationship Management. We now optimistically look forward to more extensively deploying market DoJo Sourcing and Quick Quote.

Pros

Market DoJo offered Sopra Steria a focussed, low entry cost, rapidly deployable cloud solution to the problem, then not available from any other supplier, of digitising the continual complexity of supplier on boarding without too much frustration and cost to a new supplier. Market DoJo enthusiastically supported Sopra Steria with innovative ideas to successfully secure an internal business and investment to save time, eliminate use of paper, centrally record and manage supplier responses and significantly reduce the need for the manual coordination of emails, Word files, Excel files and signed documents through the post. We are now taking advantage of the data collected to approach existing suppliers to gain formal agreement to GDPR and our Sustainable procurement principles.

Cons

Having worked with Market DoJo to create very useful and simple solutions there is a growing need to able to extract data easily to create reports. Currently the reporting aspect of Market DoJo could be improve, possibly using new BI tools enabling us to easily extract to combine and compare data.

Dojo for Paddy Power Betfair

Dojo have helped us greatly in rolling out our Procurement systems strategy. They have offered us agile, easy to acquire, value for money solutions for tasks like Category planning and eRFx. Their tools are also easily shared with our operations around the world, assisting us in globalising our Procurement service.

Pros

- Extremely agile - very easy to acquire and use
- Excellent value for money - low investment required
- Top class customer support - 2nd to none

Cons

No negative comments to make. The effort and investment required to get started with Dojo solutions is so small relative to other solutions that any "downside" would be quickly forgiven. Yet, we haven't seen any to-date.

Experiences in Market Dojo

This tool has been very good, because we have obtained a good percentage of savings in the purchase of the products; We have also obtained new suppliers. Achieving a healthy competition

Pros

It´s friendly, so that make it easy to use (both operator and the supplier.)
I can developer a lot of test in the sandbox.

Cons

You can not use decimals, and it causes an impact with certain products at the time of the auction.

eSourcing software - excellent system

I have always found working with MarketDojo and the team a pleasure - great software, good support and very engaging team who go the extra mile. Recommend them to anyone looking for a cost effective, easy to use sourcing tool.

Pros

I have used the MarketDojo platform on several occasions now to run sourcing events and eAuctions. It is very easy to use, has a wide variety of features and is very cost effective.

Cons

I genuinely cant fault this based on my usage of the system.

Quite possibly one of the simplest yet most effective ways to save money on your procurement!

Significant savings against procurement budgets.

Pros

Very easy to use, auctions can be as simple or as complex as you require. This in turn means your supply chain interact with the platform more completely - generating greater results.
Auctions can be set up in a matter of minutes.

Cons

Having only used the Auction function thus far, I have yet to encounter any negative aspects related to this specific feature alone.

The future of Procurement, easy to use and set up.

Simple .

Pros

Easy to use. Users see the benefits as soon as they start using the system.
Easy to on board suppliers , we have on-boarded people in a few minutes.
Traceable, all our data about the quote in one place that is audit-able.

Cons

Supplier side needs a little work, but nothing major.
I would like the ability to make the attributes in the lots system filterable.

Easy to use, easy to onboard suppliers and great functionality

Clients have expressed opinions of real value add to their procurement activities and are enthused by the product and by the team at Market Dojo who are clearly passionate about their product and extremely credible.

Pros

Step by step creation of events and forms makes it straight forward to use from the first time. But the live help function enables any questions to be rapidly dealt with. The product has great functionality and ability to set up conditional answers. The ability to clone events saves huge amounts of time. Onboarding suppliers is quick.
The look is great and clients really like it. It helps to the credibility of my consultancy business to have such a great tool at our disposal and available to leave with a client for them to continue to use. pricing is competitive and represents excellent value compared to comparative systems available.

Cons

It can be 'over engineered' for the simplest of RFQ activities, however the cloning facility means once a simple RFQ type has been created it can be replicated quickly.
I'd like to see the types and format of the auctions expanded a little more but the main types of auction and the options cater for all but the most complex negotiations

An innovative, powerful eSourcing tool that gives buyers absolute control over their tenders.

Pros

Market Dojo has offered me excellent flexibility and customer support to personally operate two RFPs. I have been able to set as many questions as I like, with virtually no restrictions on the parameters set for bidders to answer to ensure that I obtain only the information I require. Incidentally, a lot of bidders commented they preferred this as it allowed them to reduce the work required to submit bids.
I love the fact that I could copy and paste the structure of a previous tenders to avoid having to construct new tenders. It saves so much time and enabled my organisation to continually improve the tenders it puts out to market without having to start from scratch.
Lastly, Market Dojo's customer support is excellent. They offer a website chat function and email support during office hours and regularly follow up on queries I make out of hours. I always receive personalised, solutions orientated feedback. Market Dojo's owners and employees are clearly very proud of their product and took a keen interest in ensuring I got the best out of its features.

Cons

It requires training, quite a bit actually to learn how to operate various features. The website would benefit from short video blogs showing how to use Market Dojo's features. Once an RFP is launched, it is very difficult to change it so, it needs to be tested prior to an RFP being issued.

Price savings, time savings, process efficiencies

Pros

The Market Dojo Software is extremely intuitive and easy to use. The functionality was brilliant

The key benefit for me when I used the software was that I was able to sell the solution internally to some very difficult stakeholders who were very negative to begin with but when they saw the platform and the benefits of using it for an end to end procurement process, they were sold.

Pros

Ascetically it was really good and the layout meant that you always know where you are. I also think commercially for what you get it is incredibly good value compared to other e-Sourcing platforms on the market. Another thing I liked was the fact that Market Dojo are able to improve the functionality of the software to meet the needs of the client which a lot of larger software companies wouldn't be able to do.

Cons

There was only one con but I believe that this has now been rectified in the fact that the solution didn't lend itself well to public sector procurement but I think the latest versions can now support this requirement.

Buying Made Simple

Customers like the results it delivers

Pros

The ultimate in flexibility and configurability - easy to set up and gives instant feedback to bidders so encourages participation.

Different types of auction also drives competition and costs down.

Clients really like the transparency.

Cons

No real cons with this software as it was intuitive to use from day one - we had to set up the lot matrix to allow us to do what we needed but once set up it was very easy to use.

Straightforward, clean product that is streamlining our entire procurement process

Very straightforward, easy to use on the surface. There are complexities that you can choose to use or not, depending on requirements and capabilities. But we can now launch a basic RFQ within minutes, or a complicated, weighted questionnaire with PQQ, vendor analysis and e-auction with a few hours work. The user interface is highly intuitive, and althought Dojo is delivering fantastic value for money, I still feel we haven't exhausted it's fulol capabilities just yet.

Pros

The developers have built this platform around the procurement user experience, rather than trying to twist an existing product to accommodate e-procurement. This makes the entire process, from initial invitation, through pre-qual, RFQ and auction, to award, logical and straightforward.

Cons

Everybody has different requirements, and there were some elements of the platform that didn't quite cut it for us. The Market Dojo team have been incredibly responsive to constructive feedback, and made quite significant adjustments to the back end reporting functions that have yielded tangible improvements in ease of analysis and reporting.

This Tool cuts down on time, and paperwork. When handling multiple projects, it is easy to go to the dashboard and find out the status of Events in an instant. The ability to monitor cost savings is valuable when reporting to Managers etc... There is far more to the Tool that I have not explored yet. I would welcome some sort of real-time user community, where experiences and knowledge could be shared.
