In case you’re asking ‘what is the sandpit?’ (or perhaps a ‘sandbox’) It’s not where you would take your bucket and spade, it’s our virtual test environment, built to provide you with a safe space to test before you go live with your sourcing events and invite real suppliers.

Within the sandpit, you can play with the Sourcing Dojo solution, build an event how you see fit, invite test suppliers and also view it as if you were any party within the event. If you like what you’ve created, you can clone the event to our live environment and launch it from there. For added guidance, you can also trigger an example eAuction and view how bids will be received.

Functionality within Sourcing Dojo’s Sandpit

  • Pre-Qualification Questionnaire, Questionnaires and RFIs

    Identify new suppliers and understand who they are, ensuring they can respond to what you need.

    Invite suppliers by personal invite or by sharing your questionnaire publicly.

    If you wish, you can proceed to an RFP, RFQ or eAuction with ease with those suppliers who meet your set criteria.

  • RFQs

    If you know what product or service you want, request price quotations from suppliers via RFQs. If you want to evaluate multiple factors other than price before making a decision, you can do so by combining with the questionnaire functionality.

    If the opportunity emerges, you can proceed to an eAuction, enabling a streamlined sourcing process.

  • eAuctions

    Create transparency and negotiate with more suppliers. With a structured process to follow, time is saved as there is no need for one-to-one discussions where you may go back and forth during negotiation.

    As your sourcing event evolves, you have the flexibility to adjust your configuration to get the most out of your supply-chain.

Ágil y enfocado a resultados Una de las razones porque decidí utilizar MarketDojo fue la facilidad de configurar eventos , ya sea licitaciones o subastas inversas, siempre enfocada en los resultados. Organiza estructuralmente la información que recoge de cada participante al evento, ésto beneficia el proceso de presentación del adjudicado hacia niveles gerenciales así como al área de auditoría interna de la organización. EN mi experiencia pude obtener mas de 10% de ahorros, 4 % mas del ahorro planeado. Muy recomendado! ☺Fácil de configurar eventos. Comunicación fluída con los participantes. ☹Modalidades de suscripción mas competitivias

One of the best eSourcing tools This is a great company to work with and they are very customer focused, as seen with their on-demand business model. ☺MarketDojo is simple to use and covers all the common use cases for strategic sourcing projects and events. Setting up auctions and RFx are very straight forward and easy on the suppliers. ☹No advanced optimization capabilities are available for scenario based analysis, but exporting to Excel can generally overcome that.

Best in class eTendering software Fantastic company to work with, great software and an extremely knowledgeable and friendly team in support. ☺Easy to build RFQ's / RFP's. Most important of all is the ability to evaluate multiple supplier pricing responses without having to spend weeks re-formatting the excel spreadsheets they have sent back - huge time saver. Also using the MarketDojo esourcing tool drives far more competition (and therefore better pricing and savings from competing suppliers) - the psychological element of competition this plays on with suppliers should not be underestimated as it's extremely powerful. ☹It would be great if there could be an integration with public sector tender portals such as Find a Tender, Tenders Direct, Due North etc as not having this integration can prevent certain clients taking the product forward.

Great customer service ☺Customer Service is awesome. [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is always very helpful. ☹For our suppliers to go in and register, they have a hard time navigating and tell me often that it's not very clear or user-friendly. I don't like when I am updating the COI by Proxy for the supplier, that it goes back into the whole approval process again even though they are already approved.

Great products The service is great, both the product and the support you receive from the very helpful staff. ☺The products are designed in such a way that they are very easy to set up and use. We have successfully used the product with both SMEs and big multinational companies ☹I do not have any specific negative feedback.

Super happy user I am very happy to work in the tool and look forward to learn even more. The tool has saved a lot of time for me and also made the final conclusions more easy to do. ☺The speed and simplicity to evaluate the replies in the tenders. Also the tool make the offers from the participants more equal and comparable. ☹For me, it has been a bit steep learing curve to use the tool but on the other hand, the support from the Market Dojo team is exceptionally good so it is nothing to worry about.

CTB Charity Auction My overall experience was amazing! In my first meeting we quickly established everything we needed to get in place & within only a few days I received a version of the graphic design for the system & for the interface along with the initial Auction List layout. The catalogue design was also absolutely second to none! I made a number of changes to lots & prices but nothing was ever too much trouble & all of these changes were made promptly! I felt that Market DOJO has really listened to what I needed & as a result there were very few design or layout amendments which made for a smooth run. The way that [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] managed the project really was outstanding - always keeping me updated with progress & sending me To Do lists of what was left. It was a total breath of fresh air to work with a company who cares so much about its clients & ensures that the maximum quality project was delivered. The result of the auction was £6300 raised which was totally amazing & we thank Market DOJO again. Thanks, Lucy Chatting ☺The software was really easy to use for the auction in terms of managing the auction lots, editing the lots & setting reserve pricing. It was also very easy to contact the bidders either one by one or as a group throughout the auction. Messages also came back easily. Any IT issues we had were also logged via the software & amended really quickly. It was also great for reviewing the latest & highest bids & placing new bids. The design, layout & look & feel were second to none & I received many comments about this. ☹It is hard for us to say as we were lucky enough to be able to use this software free of charge for the charity. I personally think it would be good to show images of the lots on the auction & also to show current highest bids for all lots even if you havent bid on it. Finally it would be good to notify bidders when they get outbid.

Easy e-auction software Very good experience, the team at marketdojo are keen to help and set up your auctions to get started, and help during the auction itself. Recommended ☺Easy and simple to use and set up Quick to run ☹Takes a little time to set up and invite suppliers vs simply emailing a tender spreadsheet, but this is rewarded with better prices (has been in my experience so far).

Time Efficient ☺The cascade setups that comes with the RFP questionnaire down to documents upload is just what we need to ensure compliance and agreement with own terms and conditions from the very beginning. ☹Auction downloads should have some complimentary graphs for a better management reporting.
