Welcome to join either of the two Theme Discussions hosted by Julia Diekmann. This session is about sharing ideas and ways of working – together you become the wiser!
MISSION STATEMENT: After this session we will have drawn from sourcing development experiences in the group. How well (or not) e-tenders and e-auctions may work and what pitfalls you may want to avoid.
Benchmark | How do you automate and digitize sourcing and tender activities?
One important aspect of digital procurement is the tender and sourcing process. Creating ways to fine tune and automate sourcing, refine and shape on a broad scale. But what can we expect from the future and how far have companies taken for instance e-tenders and e-auctions? Isn’t it so that e-mails and excel sheets are still pre-dominant in most companies? Why? ”This is not the way I am used to” might have been heard in your organization. During this session you will learn form the experiences Stora Enso have embarking on their digitization journey. Most of all you get to compare note with each other – what are good and bad experiences you can share with each other and come out the wiser from this session?
Learn from each other;
- How do you handle your sourcing initiatives?
- What tools and integrated ways to create tenders and source do you use?
- Do you have an end to end process and system working?
- Can a robot run a tender?
- Where are tenders moving ahead?
