Ecommerce for Sourcing Procurement

Many companies and local as well as state governments use e-commerce for procurement. By signing up for their programs, businesses in the supply chain can receive Requests for Proposals, handle vendor applications online, and sometimes even submit proposals online without using reams of paper -- which helps green the process.

Supply Chain Procurement

eProcurement enables not only improved prices and conditions, but also speeds up the procurement process and increases efficiency along the supply chain.

eProcurement also provides higher transparency throughout supplier markets and increases competitive advantages for participants based on this access to information.

Suppliers can confirm or change orders online – around the clock, 7 days per week and 365 days a year.
