negotiation via imbins
Imbins© (InterNeg multi-bilateral integrative negotiation system) is a multi-bilateral (i.e. one vs. many) 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 Mozilla Firefox 3.5 (or above) or Google Chrome with monitor resolution 1280*1024 (or above).
Before you begin your negotiations
Please follow these simple steps:
Read about the Imbins system.
Review the example that demonstrates Imbins features.
Look at a handout for an explanation of the main steps and actions for using Imbins.
A video that demonstrates the use of Imbins and its features (as a buyer).
A video that demonstrates the use of Imbins and its features (as a seller).
Read an e-procurement teaching note.
And remember that we have prepared FAQ and Glossary pages for you.
If you decide to use Imbins, 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 Imbins system; you need to log in negotiate; to make offers and send messages.
