eSourcing workshops


Scanmarket is hosting eSourcing workshops on a regular basis for anyone who is about to start or already are using an eSourcing solution and wants to learn how to effectively plan and conduct eSourcing events. In our workshops you will get a thorough introduction into Scanmarket's eSourcing platform, gain extensive knowledge of the decisive factors for achieving success with eSourcing and delivering great results for your business.


What are the challenges?

There are few limitations when it comes to the kinds of products and services that can be negotiated via eSourcing. Your challenge as a buyer is to choose the right event set-up and the most suitable event strategy to achieve maximum savings and the optimum solution for your business. Concurrently you should be able to specify the product/service to ensure that you are comparing apples with apples. Typical questions that need clarification in the initial phase are: Is the spend attractive for my suppliers? Is there competition in the market? Are my products/services clearly specified?

In addition, you must also learn how to use a new system and transfer your current procurement processes and knowledge to ensure that eSourcing becomes an important part of your role.

Looking for a more advanced workshop? Have a look at our eAuction Strategy workshop where main focus is process and strategy.
