KGM Energy Brokers - eProcurement with Attitude


E-Auctions are the most common and effective type of e-procurement solution in which the roles of the buyer and seller are effectively reversed, which is why an e-auction is often referred to as a reverse auction

Instead of companies having to do all the leg work to find an energy provider, in an e-auction the suppliers are required to bid online against each other to supply a company’s energy necessities, according to published contract specifications. Suppliers can view each other’s bids and prices typically decrease over time.


In an added bonus for the buyer, auction weighting can be used within the reverse auction set up, which requires suppliers to specify precisely what services they can offer if their bid is successful. This means the buyer can assess the suppliers not only according to cost, but also quality of service and delivery.


In summary, e-auctions are up to 18% more cost effective, more efficient and more transparent than traditional procurement, expand supplier access, and facilitate decision making.
