Decades have now passed since Jon Barnard (our Managing Director) invented On-line Tendering.
The first system was developed many years before the Internet (1989) and consisted of 100 telephone lines, each linked to a modem and a multi-tasking database software he had developed on MS DOS based machines.
This was an amazing achievement for the technology of the day. Not only was this the world's first on-line interactive Tender system, it is believed to be one of the first interactive on-line database systems developed in the world.
We are just as dedicated to the future development of on-line tendering as we were in 1989 and we are gradually opening up more and more of our services for free access. You can advertise tenders and access many of the tenders listed on this network without cost.
Tenders.Net is a genuine one-stop-shop for all tendering practices. Our innovative approach to tendering in addition to a continuous concentration on research and development ensures that the very latest technology is employed to enable you the simplest, least expensive and most effective results whether you are a Buyer or Supplier.
Our ethics, values and comprehensive levels of service led Australia's leading business magazine, BRW to herald our network as "information database of the year".
For suppliers of goods and services we guarantee to provide the most comprehensive access to business opportunities.Searching
For buyers of goods and services we guarantee to provide the most cost effective solution for benchmarking and procurement.Advertising
"As a small, industry-specific consulting practice I have limited resources for finding new business. I have two reliable sources -- word-of-mouth and Tenders.Net. The word-of-mouth source tends to generate similar projects to those already completed for clients within the same geographical reach.""But with Tenders.Net I get a look at a much broader canvas -- in terms of both the type of project and the geographical coverage. Consequently, this service has become a vital part of sourcing new business and one which is focused on real opportunities; those which are seeking expressions of interest or have gone to tender.""The daily emails are tailored to my search criteria and ensure I am across all relevant opportunities."
"Thank you so much for setting up this [subscription] for Tender Net""I must say I have already noticed a positive difference with your site - that is, I have picked up a Tender that I'm still yet to receive from your competitors."
"We have been a subscriber to your service for almost ten years and over this period we have found your service to be extremely reliable and one that captures all markets that we have an interest in. Your daily service has added great value to our tender searching and review process.""Thanks once again for your co-operation and assistance."

"Your ability to program downloading of tenders for our particular requirements has ensured a saving in time.
