Stakeholder FUTURA - Approver

  • Tendering simply

    Deploy a standardized solution for your tenders and price inquiries. It simplifies and safeguards your processes. Are you an organizer of construction tenders with multi stage item lists? Are you working with GAEB files? FUTURA is ideally suited for this.

  • Master data libraries

    Would you like to store master data in order to resort to them repeatedly for your inquiries and tenders? Manage your master service specifications and material master files. You can easily create your tenders from these libraries.

  • Managing service master files

    Would you like to manage your master data for services, but you shy away from operative expenses in SAP? In FUTURA you can conveniently create or modify the service master files, and transfer them from FUTURA to SAP interactively, at the push of a button.

  • GAEB and Excel

    You can easily import item lists from Excel or GAEB files to your tenders in case the consumers and planners are using their own tool, for example AVA, the software for tendering, awarding and billing. FUTURA is well versed in these matters and displays the individual items legibly on screen for you, your bidders and suppliers.

  • Bundled communication services

    In addition to tendering, you can also use FUTURA to exchange documents with your bidders and suppliers, or to answer their questions. That way, you keep track of all transactions and also meet the audit requirements.

  • Sourcing cockpit

    Notifications inform you about the tendering and bidding status: Have the attachments been opened, have requests been viewed or have offers been submitted? Thereby, you can quickly remind suppliers to submit their offer, expand the circle of bidders or extend the submission deadline.

  • Convenient offer analysis

    Price schedule analysis at the push of a button. After the deadline, a neat price comparison list sums up all offers automatically – so you can compare prices and simulate scenarios in a better way.

  • Flexible conduct of negotiations

    Carry out tenders over several rounds of negotiation and use the possibility to change the tender parameters so as to get the best prices – on bidder and supplier side the changes are always displayed clearly. Simulate your negotiation results in different price comparison scenarios based on several request versions.

  • Negotiating by auctions (last bid)

    Place a purchasing auction on top of a tender to receive the final price. This is fair and transparent at the same time. FUTURA has to offer different auction types like English, Dutch or Yankee auctions. Extensive settings enable you to customize the rules and the transparency level of an auction down to the last detail according to your project requirements.

  • Automated order transactions

    Provide consumers with negotiated framework agreements and contracts. Orders or call-off orders based on a framework agreement can thus be effectuated quickly and without effort – either in FUTURA or in SAP. Via the FUTURA-cloud, the service provider or supplier can access the synchronized framework agreement and enter the measurement or billing on their own.

  • Continuous change order management

    In case of changes keep the estimated budget under audit-proof control. A change in execution or the necessity of an unsolicited service is openly communicated, so that the current order and stage of completion is consistently documented in FUTURA.
