Frequently asked questions

What is supplier diversity management software?

Supplier diversity management software is used by governments, educational and healthcare institutions and corporations to implement and document their supplier diversity initiatives. Supplier diversity initiatives can be designed to direct more of an organization's contracts to small, local, and/or diverse businesses. Supplier diversity programs may include the ability for businesses to be certified (for example as a small, women-owned, minority-owned, or veteran-owned business). Effective supplier diversity programs use software to automate the complex process of matching potential vendors with contract opportunities.

How does vendor matching work?

Avisare automatically compares the RFPs that your organization creates or posts on the system with our pool of vendors, and then immediately notifies the vendors who are a potential match for an RFP offering. That reduces the burden on small businesses of having to track RFPs from multiple organizations, and our system also creates a great way to communicate with and provide additional support for your vendor community.

How can I use the Avisare system for procurement and supplier diversity management?

Avisare is a full-service e-procurement tool for individual agencies or businesses, with a focus on facilitating streamlined vendor matching between small and diverse businesses and appropriate RFPs. You can use Avisare as your all-in one e-procurement solution, by building a vendor network, creating and sharing RFP opportunities, accepting and evaluating RFP responses, and deciding on and communicating contract awards, all on the Avisare system. For organizations that already have a e-procurement system, you can use Avisare as an additional component designed to improve vendor matching and supplier diversity tracking and outcomes. In that case, Avisare will ingest your RFPs and complete the vendor matching and notification process on your behalf. You are able to track the full lifecycle of procurement outcomes through the system.

Where is Avisare hosted?

Avisare is a software as a service (SaaS) product hosted on Amazon Web Services. There is no need for local hosting or setup, which means you can start using Avisare right away.
