Electronic Third-party Negotiation Automation System and Tool

US Patent: US20190244268A1
Status: Pending

A negotiation process that’s automated yet remains sensitive to human insights is no longer wishful thinking. This patent outlines an approach for constructing a system that uses various data sources to help sellers generate optimized cost estimates, reducing inaccuracies and the extensive resources usually required to handle large bid volumes.

  • Data-Driven Estimations: Utilizing comprehensive data to provide accurate cost estimates.
  • Seller Autonomy: The system offers flexibility for sellers to modify or accept generated estimations.
  • Optimized Processing: Streamlining the negotiation rounds for efficiency.


Generation and Real-time Ranking of Customized Quotes

US Patent: US20230289873A1
Status: Pending

Imagine a competitive event environment where sellers are dynamically ranked based on real-time data rather than static, possibly biased information. That’s precisely what our trailblazing platform offers. This approach doesn’t just keep system resources lean—it revolutionizes the way sellers respond to procurement requests, ensuring that both sides of the transaction experience the pinnacle of modern efficiency and transparency.

  • Dynamic Seller Interaction: This system allows for real-time modifications, keeping the competitive environment agile.
  • Reduced System Burden: By focusing only on necessary data points, we ensure an optimized experience.
  • Improved Accuracy: Live adjustments lead to more precise seller quote rankings.
