Sourcing efficiency & Supplier Diversity matters the most today, and competition is everywhere on every continent of the globe, 99% of the business is competitive in nature and face disruption with emerging technology. No matter if you are manufacturing a Lawnmower or making Shampoo, the price versus performance of the product is widely evaluated by Buyers ever than before, in the digital world Buyer is educated and aware of multiple choices while making a purchase decision.

Here effective smart sourcing plays a role; a diverse set of suppliers brings product innovation and competition among themselves to win your business. As Buyer, you get multiple options on your fingertip and carry a level of assurance on the price and quality of the material you are buying.
Small to Large Enterprise companies use some procurement tools from off the shelf readily available ERP tools to customize tools built for their specific need once the Buyer approves a particular supplier and adds into the order processing system (ERP), which makes ordering processing and tracking easy when the material is needed.
While on the other hand Sourcing process is manual time taking and tedious task, the journey of effective sourcing starts right from finding a Supplier, receiving initial quotes, validating & selecting Supplier, and then the last process would be negotiations. There is a minimum level of technology used for managing and measuring the sourcing process effectively; still, Buyers rely on traditional tools like email, Excel Sheets and try to find new suppliers via Google search or surfing through some trade directory.
