Pros: Promena software is easy to operate, even for first time users, with its intuitive menu design, visual aids and vast network of suppliers. A supplier new to the system can easily submit proposals in a very short time span.
We have had many benefits to our e-bidding process since we have joined the Promena system. The fast and competent support from the sales and technical teams also render Promena rather unique.

Comments: We at Aygaz have been managing our purchasing activities electronically for 15 years.
All steps, from purchase request to opening an order, from the invoice receipt to the stock follow-up, each and every step is carried out using the 3rd version of the procurement system.
We have been working with Promena since 2004. At a time when all systems are becoming more and more electronically operated, Promena has undertaken the very important mission to provide a serious, fair, trustworthy and transparent procurement system. This was a particularly critical undertaking to ensure that price structures were maintained in an ethical working environment under and impartial organization as much as possible.
The system has changed over time and has been able to add important purchasing modules such as the Purchase Specification Information Infrastructure (RFI) and the Bid Collection (RFQ) modules while keeping up to date with its own dynamics.
I can safely say that other corporations like ours who had to put all of these steps into practice have had an equally enjoyable experience managing supplier relationships through a single portal. For this reason, we have continued our relatively intense working relationship with Promena team for the past 2 years. We are excited to bring our solution partnership into 2017 with the development of the voluntary pilot of its supplier portal infrastructure.
We offer our sincerest gratitude for the discipline, sincerity and self-sacrifices we have seen from our friends at Promena, who have supported and cared to the utmost degree about all of our work together.

Comments: The ability to manage and process the digital transformations of the modern era becomes more important each and every day. In addition to the time and cost savings that Promena has provided us by providing procurement processes using information technology, they also provide reliable, fast and efficient procurement management through demand-oriented solutions from start to finish to fulfill all our needs. Promena team has been with us from the beginning to the end of the process and has played an important role in how we have managed all of our processes. With the e-procurement module provided by Promena, we have gained significant advantages in terms of cost, along with increasing competition with suppliers by providing a direct and supportive line to increase the profitability of our company. By providing a process that allows quick and easy access to its reports, the portal offers and easy-to-use application that gives the opportunity to understand each phase of the processes you are in, what sort of solutions might be available, a data analysis of the results of your actions, how your desire results might be accomplished and data and analysis of ever step you have taken. Just as important as the time and cost savings you gain when you use Promena procurement processes is the fairness and transparency provided in relationships with suppliers. Promena allows for the establishment of healthy and sustainable supplier relationships by creating an environment of trust, and I believe its new RFQ application module will be similarly influential and useful.

Comments: We are the office of GfK Turkey, and as such we sought to identify business partners who could reinforce our high-performance culture in the field of quantitative and qualitative research, data collection and processing. As a result, we chose one Promena e-Sourcing system, who works under Koç Holding - one of the foremost holding companies in Turkey.

We drew a great amount of interest from GfK Global purchasing as we were among the first to implement this method in Turkey. With this e-procurement method we implemented a multi-purpose supplier selection process. Beyond being transparent and fair, we have also identified business partners with whom we can collaborate to increase our competitiveness in the field in line with GfK standards in a reliable and efficient manner. Thank you to the Promena team, with whom we co-managed with this process.

Comments: Thanks to the cooperation we established with Promena 4 years ago in 2012, we have been able to manage our procurement processes more transparently and efficiently. We use a wide range of electronic platforms, from service transport services to line purchasing roll outs. With Promena, we are able to save a lot of time by combining our Brazilian, American, German, Indian, Russian, South Korean and Chinese suppliers portfolios at the same time. The ease with which we can trace and produce reports on the system are other factors that have led to us successfully managing our business.

We thank the Promena team for the dedication, support, contributions and cooperation that they have shown us.

Comments: As VKV American Hospital, we use the e-Tender method in order to meet our pharmacy¿s daily medicine needs. We carried our yearly medical purchasing of about nearly 2.5 million USD to Promena Platform. With this method, while obtaining a serious manpower efficiency in our daily proposal processes, we also ensured a cost benefit of %2 to %6 per e-Auction event.

Comments: In our purchasing activities, RFQ and e-Auction / e-Tender methods have become a routine business that enabled us to increase the transparency and ability of monitoring our processes.

With the support of the Promena team, we managed to increase our operational efficiency by means of reducing the bid collection period in RFQ¿s, especially for cases with multiple suppliers and a variety of materials. We created value by applying the correct strategies in a competitive environment brought by e-Auction methods.

Comments: As Tupras, we carried out 332 e-Auctions in 2013. We used the e-Auction / e-Tender method for various categories such as Equipment, Field Cleaning Services, Tank Construction, Maintenance and Repair, Pipes, Valves, Chemicals, Catalysis purchasing and Scrap sales.

In addition, for us and our suppliers, e-Auction is not only a tool to reduce the price level, but it is also a preferred method since it is easy to use, transparent and it provides time saving.
