CombineNet's advanced e-sourcing product, CombineNet ASAP®, gives procurement teams greater capabilities for strategically sourcing critical and more complex spend categories, and improving sourcing award decisions through optimization. CombineNet ASAP, along with CombineNet’s offerings in Spend Analysis and Contract Management are web-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions designed for rapid deployment, scale, and ROI.
CombineNet was founded in 2000 to apply advanced optimization practices to the problems faced by procurement teams as they must combine all the data associated with a sourcing event with the numerous business constraints and preferences that go into making supplier award decisions. Many first-generation e-sourcing tools even today pose too many constraints on sourcing event setup, event size, the type of data that can be collected, and analytics. Following early successes with clients such as Procter & Gamble and Bayer, particularly for highly complex transportation and packaging material sourcing needs, CombineNet continued to expand on the capabilities of its technology to meet wider ranges of customers' sourcing needs.
