Make Sourcing Easier for Everyone

In order to meet performance objectives procurement organizations must maximize the value of negotiated contracts. To that end, providing users with easy-to-use tools is vital. Invariably, organizations that fail to do so suffer from low rates of adoption among sourcing professionals, push-back from line of business users, and the burden of training suppliers.

Oracle Fusion Sourcing inspires adoption and simplifies sourcing processes by providing users with step-by-step guidance throughout the negotiation lifecycle. This will enable sourcing professionals to tailor negotiations to the organization’s needs, leverage information from past events, and collaborate with subject matter experts from across the business. The process will reduce negotiation cycle times and accelerates the rate of realized savings. Oracle Fusion Sourcing’s intuitive user experience also benefits suppliers. A comprehensive overview of sourcing activity makes it easy for suppliers to understand current status and to take action. Support for commonly used applications, such as spreadsheets, makes submitting bid responses very straightforward. And Oracle Fusion Sourcing even offers embedded online training that makes it easy for suppliers engage in every part of the sourcing processes.

By reducing the effort to train users, Oracle Fusion Sourcing helps procurement organizations focus on what’s important: getting the most value from strategic sourcing.
