Consider how consumers wait until the holidays to make big purchases. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are commonly the most robust shopping days of the year, proving the power of discounts. What if retail businesses could get the same discounts from their suppliers? Furthermore, what if they could get them any time of the year?

We asked: “Wouldn’t B2B ‘shoppers’ love to have the same opportunity to save?”
And e-auctions do just that. Savings when retail businesses need them the most.

Retail businesses are always looking for ways to save money on their purchases and decrease their overhead costs to increase their profit margin. Recently, the concept of e-Auctions is gaining traction as an effective way to do exactly that.

e-Auctions are an efficient and effective mechanism for B2B companies to make purchases while reducing their procurement costs. These auctions take the same dynamics that make Black Friday so popular – limiting time and opportunity – and turn them into a competition between suppliers.

Using reverse auction strategies, companies can achieve significant savings ranging from 22-52 percent. This approach involves inviting multiple pre-selected suppliers to participate in a real-time auction, where the lowest bidder wins the contract. The process is quick, and transparent, and does not require additional work from the buyer.

e-Auctions are not limited to specific industries or product categories. They can be used to negotiate prices for products and services across local and regional areas. By using e-Auctions, companies can speed up their negotiations, avoid creating delays in the decision-making process and simplify the effort required on the part of the person leading the reverse auction.

Learn how to use eAuction strategy to reduce procurement cost

There are countless examples of e-Auctions helping owners secure what they need. For instance, a chain of grocery stores using an e-Auction to purchase glass covers for their bakery division, while a tech company used the approach to contract a supplier of laptops. In each case, the company saved money while achieving its objective. You can read more about these examples below.
