bidproc Case Studies

Here is what Carillion Allawi had to say about bidproc:

"We have used bidproc for Reverse eAuctions on 2 occasions the latest one in Oct 2022, the team at Business Gateways were fantastic, supporting us all the way through the Event, from set up, vendor on boarding & live Event Support. The system is very easy to use and we have achieved great results. Well done to the team especially to Ms Lamees Al Saqri who stayed throughout the entire event and ensured it was conducted in a smooth manner."
