Buyers' Guide

10 critical considerations for selecting the right eSourcing partner for your business. 


Sourcing and procurement professionals face enormous pressure to deliver, but face a number of challenges to effective sourcing projects:
Resource limitations

You already have a great team running strategic sourcing events, but they just can’t get to every possible category. You’re getting to the low hanging fruit, but not the rest. If you’ve got the events, just not enough time to run them all, working with experts that can become an extension of your team will allow you to improve your results.


Expertise

You’ve probably got a team of talented category managers and procurement professionals - but do you have people who specialize in identifying categories, creating effective eSourcing strategies, identifying additional qualified vendors, and building and managing online sourcing events? Offloading work-intensive projects or deferring to a dedicated eSourcing account manager – e.g. to run that HR Services event you’ve never tackled before – can be a huge weight off your team.


Inflexible technology

There’s a very good chance you’ve found your hands tied due to limitations of your existing sourcing tool itself. Many reverse auction tools for example are simply not designed to handle complex categories. Within those complex categories, you’ll find some of your biggest savings. Supplement your existing solution with a full-service sourcing solution. All you do is provide the basic category information –your partner handles the rest.
