How Smartsettle Infinity uncovers Hidden Value


Complex negotiations have two important objectives; fairness and efficiency. To understand this better, we recommend that you prepare for this webinar by first watching the "Orange Quarrel" video (9 minutes on YouTube). 


In this presentation, Dr. Ernest Thiessen will first explain how Smartsettle Infinity uses Visual Blind Bidding to help negotiators achieve the fairness objective and then applies optimization with an algorithm called "maximize the minimum gain" to make sure that there is no value left on the table. The presentation will be concluded with a demonstration of Infinity showing a simulation of a negotiation between Jenny and Joey who are fighting over a single orange. After seeing how Infinity could be used to solve this very simple problem, you will be able to imagine how this powerful eNegotiation system is able to produce tremendous benefits through time savings and uncovered value in any complex negotiation with any number of quantitative or qualitative issues between any number of decision makers.
