E-procurement is done with a software application that includes features for supplier management and complex auctions. The new generation of e-Procurement is now on-demand or a software-as-a-service.
The e-procurement value chain consists of indent management, eTendering, eAuctioning, vendor management, catalogue management, Purchase Order Integration, Order Status, Ship Notice, eInvoicing, ePayment, and contract management. Indent management is the workflow involved in the preparation of tenders. In goods procurement, indent generation activity is done online.

E-procurement in the public sector has seen rapid growth in recent years. An e-procurement system manages tenders through a web site.
