Calls for tenders are highly standardised and constrained procedures. In particular, the deadline for submitting the tenders must be scrupulously respected. Oftentimes, a deadline is even clearly mentioned! With the electronic signature, it is impossible to miss this "deadline" for sales teams, who would also benefit from additional time to complete the procedure.
For (open or restricted) calls for tenders, deals are more complicated to close because there is no face-to-face negotiation. The client's decision is made on the basis of criteria that have been made known to the candidates beforehand. The file must therefore be irreproachable and perfectly meet the expectations of the potential client. Until the very last moment, the sales teams refine the application file. And, as we know, the last few hours are sometimes used to improve on details that can make the difference.
Time is therefore very important in these calls for tenders.
The electronic signature allows sales teams to work until the last minute and increase their chances of closing the contract. For procurement teams it is a simple way to digitise their entire tender processes and to centralise all responses while ensuring their compliance.
The electronic signature is a highly secure process that complies with the European eIDAS regulation. Furthermore it is carried out by companies certified by Public Authorities.
