BidMySpec® is a web based reverse auction system. The web app allows companies to purchase contracts from new and existing suppliers across a host of different industry sectors in an open and anonymous process. The market was extensively researched and subsequently the system was designed and developed over the course of a year. Constant re-evaluation of the system through the use of wireframes, prototypes and usability testing ensured immediate success.


BidMySpec® has been rolled out to companies spanning the UK & Ireland, and in one particular instance saving a leading Irish construction company in excess of €1.3 million in its first 3 months.
