Just knowing that your organization needs an e-Procurement and/or e-Sourcing solution is not enough to begin evaluating vendors in the space.  This is especially true if your 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 solution.

In the upcoming webinar, “Acquiring e-Sourcing and e-Procurement Technology: What Questions Should You Really Be Asking?,” we will outline the critical questions that must be asked when searching for an e-Sourcing or an e-Procurement solution, as well as important questions that should also be considered for each major module.  An explanation of the importance, and ordering, of the questions (in a multi-round RFX process) will also be provided.

The guest presenter for this webinar is Dr. Michael Lamoureux, Editor-in-Chief of Sourcing Innovation.
