eSourcing services & tools to help you buy & sell better

Services we offer:

RFQ/RFI – Request for Quote/Information – Obtaining quotes might sound like a simple task, however, it can be very time consuming and not having the expertise in understanding what you are looking to achieve, who to contact and how to get the best results for you could end up causing your project to fail. We are experts in this area, this is our core business so you are far more likely to get the best total deal for you and the supplier. (START NOW)

e-Auctions/Procurement – We offer closed e-auctions, including reverse auctions to help you drive down costs. We don’t just provide the tools, we run auctions for you including researching, shortlisting and chasing up suppliers to get you the best possible outcomes. *According to a report published by David C. Wyld, Professor of Management at Southeastern Louisiana University, electronic reverse auctions (eRAs) can produce savings of between 10-40% (Tassabehji, 2010) on average.

Collective Purchase – We negotiate better terms with companies, create economies of scale by utilising the buying power and shared intellect of the crowd. You can also vote for what deals you want and we coordinate the deals with suitable suppliers once there’s enough interest.

We help businesses of any size and sector to significantly reduce indirect procurement costs by finding other businesses that don’t compete with you to collectively purchase in order to jointly drive down your costs. Daily consumables such as stationary, house-keeping, dairy, grocery, utilities, medical & fresh produce are typical examples provide savings between 10-22%.

Supplier/Contract Management – Engaging with and continually maintaining lines of communications with your supplier will not only increase the chances of getting better outcomes for your project but is likely to allow you to increase the desire by your suppliers to compete and want your business that much more on contract renewal. We also become your gatekeepers, transfer all your inbound cold callers to us and utilise our tools to allow potential new suppliers to queue up on your system for each contract at renewal automatically, this alone should make your entire enterprise more efficient and focused on growing your core business and not dealing with annoying cold callers.

Benchmarking Suppliers – It’s vital to continually benchmark your suppliers, sadly these days some suppliers have a policy of offering better deals to new clients than existing loyal ones. We start with a simple Benchmark Audit document then conduct an in-depth benchmarking process.
