Problem Description

The client was facing problem in growing business to other geographical boundaries as they were finding it difficult manage their existing product developed in classic ASP. Moreover, the usage of Microsoft Technology at many places made it difficult for them to be cost effective as other vendors.

Considerable customization on each client led to an inefficient, error-prone and unmanageable code.The system was not fully configurable leading to limitations in the customers they could get on board.

NexTenders was getting a lot of inquiries for other periphery systems like Pre-Tendering, Post-Tendering, e-Auction and catalog management system. They had no technical expertise to develop these


Nextenders provides a set of integrated applications that enables end-to-end automation of all activities in any procurement process – from indent, tender preparation, bid submission, bid closing, bid opening and evaluation, bid negotiation, award, contract management and reverse auctions, including that for Government and Public Sector companies.

The client’s existing product had limited configuration possibilities and was difficult to manage. Digicorp brainstormed with client implementation experts and designed a core dynamic transactional framework with systematic workflow and template engine.The configuration allowed the end client to design the system as per his need basis with minimal intervention from the developers.Digicorp worked with NexTenders implementation team for initial product implementations.

We derived the concept to comply database, platform and browser independence.The database independence was achieved by use of Hibernate thus reducing the need to modify the code as per the database. By the use of GWT, browser independence was achieved.With Java as the programming language, the deployments were not limited and could run on both Linux and Windows.

Due to the critical nature of the product where security and data integrity was of utmost importance, the system was made compliant with Nextenders’ patent pending Secure Bid process. The simple and effective product design to reduce the long-term support and maintenance cost.This was achieved by using client side encryption/decryption and hashing.

We also build a capacity to support the new products. We regularly advised Nextenders’ management for defining and streamlining the product plan from technical and business aspect
