Hellenic Petroleum Group of companies is active in a wide range of activities, being an important business factor in the energy market of South East Europe. In its continuous evolution and, mainly, in the continuous development of digital technologies, a year ago, we partnered with cosmoONE in improving its procurement procedures through Electronic Tenders (e-Tenders) and Auctions (e-Auctions). With the support of cosmoONE’s specialized IT professionals, Hellenic Petroleum’s Supply Managers and team succeeded with increasing their productivity and reducing the time and the cost of the supply cycle. At the same time, transparency and equity were strengthened, values which are cornerstones in the Group's procurement process.
cosmoONE’s e-Auctions platform is an important tool for our company in the context of our supply needs. We have been using the platform for the last 7 years with very good results in terms of offered prices, with the increased intensity of competition that the candidates develop. It offers a clear and unambiguous way to the bidding process. We are completely satisfied with our experience so far and we look forward to correspondingly satisfactory results in the future. Special mention should be made to cosmoONE’s team that supports us in all the auctions we have held so far through their platform.
The Independent Power Transmission Operator S.A. aims at the operation, control, maintenance and development of the National Electricity Transmission System, in order to ensure the supply of electricity to the country in an adequate, efficient, safe and reliable way. Aiming to improve the procurement processes of projects, materials and services, in the context of the constant search for growth and development, we have partnered with cosmoONE. Working with cosmoONE has had many benefits, such as full transparency, resources saving, cost reduction due to the high level of competition among the suppliers, shorter procurement cycle time because of the automations offered, processes standardization across the company, interdepartmental communication improvement, and more. Also noteworthy is the excellent cooperation with cosmoONE’s staff, which is possessed by a high sense of professionalism and consistency, business experience and know-how, showing absolute dedication to the positive result.
cosmoONE has always been a valuable partner for Alpha Bank, in its effort to establish healthy competition for its suppliers, ensure full transparency in tender procedures and equal opportunities for all. The multi-year cooperation is distinguished by the high level of services provided and is considered absolutely successful. The large number of e-Auctions conducted on an annual basis brings a significant financial benefit to the Bank.
Since 2017, the auctions for the simple use of the seashore and the beach by the Real Estate Services of the Ministry of Finance, are performed electronically through cosmoONE’s applications providing full transparency, speed and efficiency. This is evidenced by the rapid increase in the number of auctions held per year (61 auctions in 2017, 456 already in 2020). Within the framework of our cooperation, in 2020, the interconnection of the certification systems and submission of participation documents of the General Secretariat of Public Administration Information Systems, with cosmoONE’s e-Auctions systems, has led to the conduct of a large number of auctions in a short time. The speed and high quality of services provided to citizens and businesses are important components for the success of any bilateral cooperation.
Our long-term cooperation with cosmoONE, can be characterized as extremely successful. The tools and applications offered fully cover the fully complex range of OTE Group supplies. In particular, through the e-Auctions, together with cosmoONE, we managed to spark healthy competition and achieve significant discounts and savings. cosmoONE’s team always listens to our needs and is constantly evolving to offer pioneering services. OTE Group Procurement enters the 4th industrial revolution with cosmoONE as an ally!
The collaboration we had with cosmoONE, was excellent! Notable, the high sense of professionalism and dedication to the result. The result was positive, as was the whole process.
