e-Sourcing, e-Negotiation, e-Procurement, e-Invoicing, e-Auction, e-RFX, e-Contract, e-Payment, Procure-to-Pay, Source-to-Pay, etc – the Supply Management solution space is filled with e- solutions.  And, as you might have guessed, they are not all the same.  They solve different problems.  Some solutions are sub-solutions of other solutions.  Some focus purely on the sourcing side of the equation where the products and services are identified and contracted.  Some focus purely on the procurement side, where requisitions are placed, purchase orders are placed, products are received, and invoices are processed.  Some play on both sides of the sourcing and procurement pond, but only address a few functions from each side.

The webinar, “Making Sense of e- in Sourcing and Procurement:  What Solution Do You Really Need?” will clearly define the sourcing and procurement cycle, indicate where each technology falls, outline what each technology does, and indicate the conditions that need to exist for each solution to potentially be appropriate.  This will provide the user with a set of questions that they can ask to determine what technologies they need to focus on as they look to acquire new sourcing and procurement technologies to support them in their Supply Management Journey.

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