CTRC REVIEW

Vendor Panel has assisted this organistaion to transition from a manual tendering process to an electronic one. The system has also provided officers with a simple method of sourcing quotes and evaluating the responses.

Pros

Ease of use for non procurement officers

Cons

Reporting/analytics is an additional cost. Would be nice if this was included in the standard subscription.

User friendly, logical, seamless

Vendor Panel is a phenomenal software provider, from a user friendly site with logical lay out, to step by step instructions, a wonderful support team, and features that drastically improve business flow. I thoroughly enjoy using Vendor Panel every day, I wish all the systems I used were as seamless and effective as this platform!

Pros

Vendor Panel is incredibly easy to use and logical in its layout and functionality.

Cons

I genuinely have sat here trying to think of something I don't like about Vendor Panel and can't come up with anything.

Vendor Panel review

Works very well when seeking quotes from audit panel members. However, we tend to evaluate quotations/tenders offline

Pros

Very easy to seek quotations from audit panel members

Cons

Not so staightforward if need to communicate with vendors during a RFQ process (eg, to responsd to a vendor question where all vendors must receive the same info). I like the ample warning messages prior to uploading/publishing material to vendors.

Motor Vehicle and Plant Purchasing

Pros

Satisfy Council's probity standards. As a lot of my purchases are for similar motor vehicles, I can use the COPY function. This is a great time saver when creating requests.

Cons

All good, no issues with it.

I would like to see greater usage from this agency. I know that we are currently looking to expand Vendor Panel functions which i hope will create an uptake in usage.

Pros

Evaluation tools and simultaneous notifications

Cons

Does not capture the business reach of the suppliers. Search results are based on the location of the business.

Vendor Panel in Local Government Fleet

For myself it has enabled me to manage my tenders at the time that I require them and to be able to open and close and select within the month.

Pros

Step by step easy to use, templates already prepared for use, and or the legal side completed and approved prior to tendering.

Cons

Have not found anything that I dont like about this program, more suppliers would be nice in the future
