FLEXIBLE EVENT CREATION
Create an event from scratch, copy a previous event, plug in values to a pre-customized template, or upload information from Excel. Establish consistent, compliant processes for every event. Collaboratively define what goods or services are needed – and use the best method to get the optimum value from the most qualified supplier.

Everything is structured, streamlined, consistent and transparent. You can finally meet all your organization’s strategic and tactical sourcing needs with speed and accuracy.
A complete collaboration toolkit to provide a continuous Q&A platform for buyers and suppliers. Keep the lines of communication open with an internal messaging system, to include instant messaging and flexible and editable email.
