Join Sourcing Innovation and the doctor for the next NLPA Members-only webinar on Acquiring e-Sourcing and e-Procurement Technology; What Questions Should You Be Asking. Taking place next Wednesday, February 26, at 8:30 am Pacific, 11:30 am Eastern, and 16:30 pm GMT (London) time.
This webinar, which follows Novembers webinar on Making Sense of e- in Sourcing and Procurement, will outline the critical questions
that must be asked when searching for an e-Sourcing or an e-Procurement solution.
In our last webinar, we clearly defined the sourcing and
procurement cycle, indicated where each technology
(e-Sourcing, e-Negotiation, e-Procurement, e-Invoicing,
e-Auction, e-RFX, e-Contract, e-Payment, Procure-to-Pay,
Source-to-Pay, etc.) fell, outlined what each technology
did, and indicated the conditions that needed to exist for
each solution to potentially be appropriate for your
organization. This provided your organization with a set of
questions it could ask to determine what technologies it
needed to focus on as it looked to acquire new sourcing and
procurement technologies to support it in its Supply
However, just knowing that your organization needs a
solution is not enough, especially if its biggest need is
a basic e-Negotiation suite that is theoretically available
from over two dozen vendors. Which solution, or solutions,
are right for your organization? Depending on the needs of
the organization, it might be the case that only two out of
twenty solutions will appropriately address the
organizational needs, but unless the right questions are
asked, it might look like six meet the needs and the
organization will have a 66% chance of selecting the wrong
That’s why the doctor of Sourcing Innovation is hosting
this follow-up webinar on Acquiring e-Sourcing and e-Procurement Technology; What Questions Should You Be Asking.
You’ll learn the critical questions
that must be asked when searching for an e-Sourcing or an
e-Procurement solution, some important questions
that should also be considered for each major module, and
how to structure a (multi-round) RFX for Success.
