Scanmarket knows what makes eSourcing successful. So can you

Implementing an eSourcing platform doesn’t generate positive results. Using it does.

Scanmarket has a 20-year history of providing advanced eSourcing tools with the right kind of support and ease-of-use to get real business results. On average, customers see a 300% increase in volume and savings in their eSourcing program when they switch to Scanmarket.

Avoiding pitfalls is key

With Account Management Plus, we have consolidated the best practices in eSourcing program management we’ve learned over our twenty years into a single, comprehensive approach that will give your organization the best probability of avoiding eSourcing pitfalls such as:

  • Lack of adoption
  • Missed targets
  • Inadequate training
  • Poor visibility and reporting
  • Persistent myths
  • Siloed usage
  • And others…
