Electronic Tender Management

Harpan is a software development company that has researched the tender management process and has adopted international best practice in its design. A comprehensive analysis of your procurement process will be carried out prior to a system being proposed and implemented. This will ensure that a system is designed and implemented around your business process to ensure maximum benefit with minimum interruption usually caused by change management. The software designed will automate and streamline the end-to-end process commencing with the needs analysis to project completion. It will provide a comprehensive system that adds value to your existing business processes. Several techniques and strategies are employed to curb corruption and ensure a cleaner process for the future. The key benefits of implementing such a system are curb corruption, process management, electronic document management, and enhanced communication. Because Harpan has designed the system we are in a position to interface to legacy / propriety / customised systems eg. SAP, AccPac etc.
