Distinguish between traditional bidding and online bidding

Going back to the history before 2016, if we go to any project management unit (usually with the function of inviting contractors), the first impression that catches our eyes is the floor, Layers and layers of documents, especially bidding documents. There are even many places that have to arrange many separate rooms just to store records, but the "odd thing" is that these records have to be stored for many years, many generations, because sometimes they have been inspected and audited many times. , but even after the inspection team still had related matters and had to query the records, they did not dare to "golden" those records.

If bidding is done online, obviously this will be fundamentally minimized, because most of the records are digitized through the network environment, some are stored on the network environment, some data is stored on the Internet. computer. Whenever needed, you can easily search and view through a computer connected to the internet.

What is the difference between online bidding and traditional bidding
Going into the comparison between traditional bidding and online bidding, we start from the preparation stage until submitting the bid documents, there is a huge difference, we can see the difference between bidding. traditional and online bidding through the following comparison table:
Traditional bidding Online bidding
Must get a referral, contact to buy documents, pay and receive documents Easily download documents online, no need for paper copies because the online version is the one recognized as having the highest legality
Documents that need to be prepared require a lot of printing, arranging, photocopying, and stamping. Sometimes it leads to confusion and errors Profiles are standardized, some key competency profiles just need to be uploaded to the system and used forever. Some forms use standard forms on the system, just need to declare using a computer connected to the internet. Processes are electronic.
It is necessary to submit bids before the bid closing time. Most contractors choose to submit their bids until the bid closing time, rarely submitting in advance because of concerns about many negative issues arising; Many contractors, due to force majeure reasons such as traffic jams, not being able to find the correct submission address, having their documents stolen during the submission process, being threatened... leading to submissions past the bid closing time or not being able to submit them at all. Bids are submitted online. You can sit anywhere with a computer connected to the internet and submit your bids without worrying about any problems related to document loss.
Through the above comparative analysis, we see a clear difference between the two forms of online bidding and non-online bidding. Online bidding brings enormous benefits, making bidding much simpler and more convenient, helping businesses save costs and troublesome procedures in bidding.
