The Buyer Platform

The Housing Agency Marketplace provides a cloud-based single-source platform enabling collaboration with Vendors,  all in real-time.

Buyer workbench

Key business value:

Enables the Buyer to view the status of individual bids by Vendor. The Buyer can also determine probability that enough Vendors will bid on the solicitation.

Vendor management

How it helps:

Provides a detailed look at Vendors that have downloaded the solicitation. Buyers can view Date/Time Downloaded, MWBE status, and Submission status.

Key business value:

Permits the Buyer drill down on individual solicitations to perform any due diligence needed per Vendor.

MWBE

How it helps:

Receive a detailed screen with all MWBE assigned to a Buyer by Commodity Code Classification. Contact person, region in which they bid , and MWBE status are also included.

Key business value:

Enables a Housing Agency to manage their certification programs (Small Business Enterprise, Minority, Diversity and etc.)

Bid Management

How it helps:

Allows the Housing Agency to automate the Bid Management process and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution ensures all bid proposals are handled electronically in a secure and auditable environment.

Key business value:

The Buyer has real-time date at their fingertips. This results in time and cost savings compared to traditional methods of identifying, categorizing and communicating with vendors.
