Negotiation via Inspire
Inspire© is an e-negotiation system powered by Invite©. It has been developed for teaching and research
purposes. We collect and analyse information generated during negotiations. We also ask users to fill in
two questionnaires. Under no circumstances, however, do we provide or allow access to individual
records nor do we disclose any information about any users (e.g., their names or email addresses).
Our users find the system easy and fun to use. They have enjoyed discussions on the Web with unknown opponents. They were able to use different strategies, learn more about negotiations and negotiation support, and work
on their communication and negotiation skills.
Please use Internet Explorer version 5 or above, or Mozilla Firefox version 3.
Before you begin your negotiations
Please follow these simple steps:
Read about the Inspire system.
Review the example that demonstrates Inspire features.
Look at a handout for an explanation of the main steps and actions for using Inspire.
And remember that we have prepared FAQ and Glossary pages for you.
If you decide to use Inspire, please note that we will pair you with someone who wishes to negotiate with you. Check your email everyday and please do not reply to the email which you receive from the Inspire system; you need to log in negotiate; to make offers and send messages.
Participate in Invite experiments
As the part of the E-negotiation research program, we conduct several laboratory experiments.
