One of the first questions that we receive – how much will this cost? – and you will be surprised at how affordable our solutions are. PlanetBids is an easy-to-use, cloud-based eProcurement solution that does not require additional hardware or software. Initial setup and training of the PB System™ modular suites requires very little of your time to get started. One very important feature – updates or enhancements to all of our solutions are ongoing and provided at no additional cost. This is a unique concept from the traditional model of purchasing an enterprise software where the customers is then charged extra for implementation, maintenance and future updates. As a result, our customers incur less risk and lower upfront costs.
