MARQUET is fundamentally a list consisting of items taken from the winning bids of tenders organised by the operator. Selected employees can make orders from this list in accordance with their rights. They do this by filling a basket in the same way as in a normal eShop. The rights of each selected employee can be limited by budget, category choice, duration and supervisory approval.
MARQUET is an internal marketplace for both contracting authorities and companies. It is designed for managing, automating and simplifying repeat purchases, as well as making savings. Its use results in savings in financial resources, staffing and a lot of time.
MARQUET is suitable for simplifying a wide range of repeat purchases such as fasteners, cleaning and hygiene supplies, office supplies, lubricants, protective equipment, medical supplies, information technology, office equipment, furniture and more.
The dashboard displays an overview of the most important information - drawing from defined budgets, requirements for processing, new items in the catalogue, etc.
Intuitive search enables fast and precise searching for required items, either by categorization tree or full-text search in catalogue or product groups.

Winning items from tenders, eAuctions and inquiries, as well as direct purchases, are sent to MARQUET’s “garage”, where an administrator checks the completeness of the data, and then puts the items in the relevant catalogue category and selects the moment of publication. If the virtual stock of any item in MARQUET falls below a set limit, the system informs the catalogue administrator.
The requirement (pre-order) of an employee for a specific product and its quantity, summarized according to the contents of the “basket”, is passed on to the client's economic instrument and here it is transformed into a classic order. According to the contractually agreed rules with the supplier, orders can only be sent after the required quantity has been accumulated. MARQUET can also send orders directly to the supplier. Another setting allows the sending of orders directly from MARQUET.
The opening of MARQUET for internal procurement is preceded by an implementation process which will enable the preparation of the solution tailored precisely to the organisation's. Products can be categorized and shared with experience of their selection. Permissions for individual employees can be set with regard to the organizational structure of the company.
The economic impact of moving part of competitive procurement into an internal procurement catalogue while facilitating the management of requirements to subordinate economic operators is extraordinary. At the beginning there is usually a feeling of restraint, but after the first days it becomes one of relief and satisfaction. It provides a detailed overview of the quantity and prices of purchased commodities across all directly managed organizations, and online generation of reporting.
