e-Sourcing: The new way to source better

As an important organizational function, strategic sourcing plays an increasingly influential role in helping organizations compete and achieve a sustainable advantage in their missions and markets. Using e-Sourcing software to automate the strategic sourcing process allows organizations to make better and faster sourcing decisions, directly impacting the efficiency of their supply chain. A comprehensive sourcing strategy should include the use of spend analysis software and reverse auctions, specifically for the online procurement of direct goods and services.

The use of e-Sourcing tools, specifically online auction software in the procurement process can generate significant cost savings for Fortune companies, small firms as well as government agencies.

e-Sourcing software does more than establish an electronic venue for buyers and suppliers to conduct business-to-business e-commerce. It also streamlines workflows for better supply chain management and spend management. E-Procurement software enhances flexibility and drives transparency between the buyers and suppliers.

e-Sourcing is the process of automating the current email or paper based sourcing process. Typical benefits of online sourcing are:

  • Obtain bids / quotes from different suppliers using a single online sourcing portal
  • Save time by streamline and automating your bid collection process achieving frictionless commerce
  • Single repository for all supplier responses so that you can compare side by side On Demand
  • e-Sourcing using reverse auctions can generate significant cost savings by increasing supplier competition for better spend management
