PROACTIS Sourcing Services 


Gain greater value in more 
categories in less time
How can we run more sourcing events?
How do we make sure every event is successful?
 
And how do we do it with our current resources?

Frustrated with your limited capacity for running competitive sourcing events?


As Procurement Director, you know there are savings to be had in more categories than your team is addressing today. But you also know it’s harder than it sounds.  

Electronic sourcing methods such as reverse auctions work – that’s been shown over and over again. But each event takes time. You need to understand the current landscape for each category. You need to find and involve the right suppliers. You need to set the stage clearly and fairly. You need the right online environment and a well-orchestrated event to be effective. And you need to make sure you maintain good supplier relationships every step of the way. It takes preparation, focus and skill to get it right every time.
Hear how a range of organisations have recouped vast amounts of wasted time, talent and cash using PROACTIS Spend Control and eProcurement.

your team
