For a long time the eSourcing tools were targeted only for the largest enterprises. The reasons for this were relatively high prices, difficult user interfaces and long and expensive implementation projects including user trainings etc.
Today there are agile and easy to use tools available for sourcing organizations of all sizes.
Large sourcing teams benefit from agile tools, since using the tools is so easy. The features are flexible and for example the tendering processes can be built up exactly according to the users’ needs. For large teams, it is possible to create joint workspaces, where best practices can be shared within the own sourcing team. The corporate structure can be built to the solution and the main users can manage the user rights. Running and managing eSourcing projects is easy and saves time in routine tasks. Therefore more time can be allocated to for example developing sourcing activities, broadening the collaboration with the chosen suppliers and other important sourcing related tasks.
For smaller sourcing teams, it is great that the implementation does not bring additional costs, you can start by just watching a tutorial and the pricing is on a reasonable level. All the work done is saved to one centralized place, where the information can be found also later. Sometimes sourcing projects are run in addition to other duties and in these cases it is extremely important, that for example templates can be used when creating a new request for quotation. This ensures that all the relevant issues are taken into account.
