The Scanmarket eSourcing Platform is a cloud application supporting the entire sourcing process from understanding your spend data, pre-qualifying your suppliers to negotiating with your suppliers and the subsequent management of your contracts. With the help of an eSourcing tool it is possible to optimize your sourcing process and make it more efficient thereby not only saving time but also money.
Modules on the Scanmarket eSourcing Platform
To support any organization in the optimal and most flexible way, the Scanmarket Platform is divided into different modules supporting different steps of the sourcing process. The modules can either be used separately or integrated:
Spend Analysis - to understand where, when and with whom your organization spends its money. By effectively analyzing and tracking spend, you can identify key spend areas to source and negotiate.
eRFx - to identify, qualify and evaluate potential suppliers. Using online Request for Information, Quotation and Proposal, all appropriate information is gathered and evaluated effectively.
eAuction - to ensure that you buy at best market price. Online eAuctions are the fairest, most transparent and most profitable way of negotiating with your suppliers. When used effectively you will save a lot of time and money.
Contract Management - to ensure contracts are handled properly. Online management of your contracts ensures instant access to relevant data, while the reminder system ensures no contracts are forgotten.
