Technology breakthroughs are enabling organizations to reimagine their sourcing and procurement functions into a virtual organization in order to drive agile and integrated processes, while aligning buying decisions with sourcing strategies. The new age of agile sourcing and smart procurement brings a different set of opportunities for the leaders, along with stakeholder expectations. Sourcing and procurement leaders are aiming to overcome functional silos, unifying end-to-end source to pay processes while exploring ways to leverage supplier relationships that can drive innovation as they try to improve performance and mitigate risks.
Procurement 4.0 is characterized by boundary less source to pay functions, capability to act on “here and now” spend insights, zero-touch smart buying, and ability to leverage ecosystems.

TAP Quick Bid
Sourcing and procurement organizations are often challenged with the efficient management of one time purchases, rush orders, low value buys, tail end items and item categories that are not considered as strategic in nature. Such spend can include short term rentals, MRO & maintenance services, and office supplies among others. The challenges include lack of spend visibility, poor user experience, low compliance and increased risk.
TAP Quick Bid helps organizations drive efficiency by enabling users to solicit supplier quotes in an agile manner. Simplified process and intuitive UI help in improving user experience. Engaging with approved suppliers eliminates risks, ensures compliance, while improving spend visibility.
TAP Quick Bid can be deployed independently as well as an integrated module with downstream processes such as contracting and procurement.
