What to know about Fluenta Auction
Several auction types and rules
➤ Set up an electronic auction and choose from a range of auction types (traditional, reverse, Dutch, Japanese, total cost, parametric, scoring–weighing) and auction rules (bid steps, starting price, automatic extensions, allowing tied bids, ranking method, blind or sealed-bid auctions etc.); this lets you align the methodology of the price negotiation with the process easily.
Buying or selling auctions
➤ Not all auctions are for purchasing or for decreasing prices. If you have assets (e.g. dead stock) or real estate to sell, you can invite potential buyers to bid within an equally short period, but this time with increasing bids. Further settings allow competing on other key procurement criteria, too – such as payment and delivery terms.
➤ Price negotiations sometimes require the use of more complex evaluation methodologies. You can set up predefined parameters for each item in the auction, with associated values of your choice. For complex items requiring the use of mathematical formulas, Fluenta supports Excel-based bidding and organizing multi-dimensional auctions.
Reports on all audited processes are available and downloadable from the beginning of the live auction. At the end of the auction, these reports can be sent to the organizer and the participants automatically (depending on auction settings).
