New tools require training and implementation - that goes for eSourcing tools as well
When buying a car you read through the manual, but you also take a written and a practical test to learn how to manage all possible situations. It's the same with eSourcing!
The Scanmarket platform is very intuitive and user-friendly and comes with manuals and video tutorials to get you started, but in order for you to benefit from all the powerful functionalities in your day-to-day work, we recommend you to consider training and implementation.
Companies investing in a user training program show higher adoption rates and greater cost savings. If you are comfortable with the platform you are more likely to use it - and you start integrating it into day-to-day processes.
Learning happens over time, not just at the initial user training seminar. On-going user training should be a required element of an eSourcing strategy - refresh your knowledge from time to time. When new people join the procurement team, training is also needed to ensure they understand how to use the eSourcing platform and the process alongside it.
Scanmarket offers multiple training and implementation programs that are tailored to your needs:
At a User seminar the instructor provides a thorough introduction to the eSourcing platform and functionalities, highlighting the advantages and possibilities. Also it includes hands-on navigation and testing of the platform.
The User seminar will help you understand how to use eSourcing in your role of procurement and will help you select suitable categories for eSourcing. The user seminar can also be used to build up the first few eSourcing projects, in cooperation with the instructor.
Online training sessions:
Our online training program consists of a wide range of online training sessions, which are used to train new users as well as refresh existing user's knowledge. New users typically go through a series of training sessions. In the training, users will learn how to use eSourcing while being introduced to the relevant modules, functions, how to set up events, etc.
The online training sessions are delivered by a dedicated instructor who will schedule all sessions according to your availability. Each session includes brief slide presentation as well as an online demonstration. After each session you will receive a soft copy of the training material.
On-going consultancy services:
In addition to our training and implementation program, Scanmarket offers a number of consultancy services to ensure you get the exact help you need. Most clients have a consultancy package which includes a personal eSourcing manager at Scanmarket, whom all users can contact to discuss event set up or tactical and strategic considerations before running an event.
This form of cooperation ensures the full use of the buyer's category experience, as well as Scanmarket's expert knowledge on eSourcing. It has proven to be a very effective method, in terms of supplier participation and successful event results.
