Role of a strategic sourcing software within procurement. At Market Dojo, we have a strong view on how sourcing activities and in particular, how Reverse eAuctions can aid the procurement departments.
Since the early era of globalisation, the role of sourcing within procurement teams has changed. Most companies are now working with a greater number of suppliers than ever before and in recent years their responsibilities are becoming more integral to the success of their business.
Rather than being just tasked with finding suppliers in the local area that produce specific materials at specific costs. Instead, we are seeing that procurement departments are focused on finding new suppliers from around the world, that can meet very specific requirements such as levels of quality and cost. Whilst incorporating other organisational goals and strong supplier relationships
It is in aiming to achieve this, that many companies have been looking to use a reverse auction to help identify the most suitable suppliers and attain market value whilst incorporating the aspects that are paramount to choosing the right supplier.
