Large-scale Sourcing Cheat Sheet: Essential Guide to Sourcing Optimization

Despite sourcing being central to supply chain and procurement processes and the business as a whole, it continues to take a backseat in most organizations’ digital transformation priorities. However, in a worrying trend, 1 in 3 organizations isn’t sure where to start digitalizing their sourcing & procurement processes, despite nearly 84% admitting its criticality. 

However, large-scale sourcing is an increasingly common procurement scenario. Therefore. each event sees participation from scores of suppliers – often 250+ – placing bids across 60,000 to 80,000+ lanes. Therefore. in this large-scale sourcing event, organizations need to model and analyze thousands of bids and conduct various what-if analyses to award the bid to the best-fit supplier out of this massive pool.
