Our previous sourcing tool did not offer the flexibility to create sourcing events tailored to our unique business requirements. On top of that, we now have access to powerful tools to analyze a huge amount of data in a relatively short period of time.
Looking only at cost savings, electronic tendering has had the greatest single effect. It allowed us to lower transport costs in 2015 by a six-figure amount.
Our overarching goal was, above all, to increase transparency in the processes and lower costs and time spent.
