Futura® AVA is much quicker and up to date in this respect.
For tenders your purchasers only have to select a group of possible suppliers. Futura® AVA finishes the job for you: It makes the tenders available to your suppliers

offer? Status messages in Futura® AVA inform your purchasers reliably on the
state of things, so they are always up to date.
