How easy is it to use Scale?
Scale has been built with you, the Kenyan entrepreneur, in mind. The system ensures you can easily navigate through the platform as you receive helpful tips throughout your tender application process.
Can I use Scale on my Mobile Phone?

Throughout the Beta (Early Release) phase, we have done our best to ensure Scale can be fully utilized across all different mobile devices using your normal browser. We are continuously testing and improving the platform to ensure you always have a seamless experience.

We also have a mobile app (Android and iOS) in development. This will be made available at a later date.

Scale’s support throughout the tender application process.
As you go through every section of the tender, Scale provides helpful tips to enable you submit accurate tender responses by explaining the small details that could potentially lead to errors. You will also receive a deadline notification and email that informs you when the deadline for every tender that you are working on is approaching.
Does Scale evaluate tender applications?
No. We do not evaluate tender applications on behalf of procuring entities and are not, in any way, involved in the evaluation, scoring or awarding process outside the Scale platform. Scale is currently only designed to digitize the tender preparation process for a tendering entity.
By using Scale, am I guaranteed to win all my tenders?

While we do our best to ensure you are ready to apply for a tender at any given time, we cannot commit to eliminating all possible systems, process and/or human errors.

By using Scale, you are guaranteed the tools needed to ensure your next tender submission is always better than the previous one. We will equip you to ensure you are continuously learning and building the capacity to apply for more tenders and increase your chances of winning.

Is Scale affiliated with the Government and/or public procuring entities?
Scale is owned and developed by an independent, privately-owned Kenyan company. Both the company and the Scale brand have no direct ownership or administrative affiliation with the Kenya Government and/or the public procuring entities.
