CombineNet ASAP®: Better and Faster E-Sourcing Event Creation with our Advanced Sourcing Product
Sourcing teams today often must choose between two less-than-ideal practices: Either use traditional e-sourcing/sourcing suite tools not designed to handle more than the most routine of sourcing bid collection and analysis requirements, or fall back to the use of spreadsheets, email, and other desktop tools that consume vast time and resources to create, collect, aggregate, analyze, and manage.

Providing a robust and flexible RFX and E-Auction management solution, CombineNet's best-in-class E-Sourcing product gives you our RFxpress wizard, the industry's most user-friendly, intuitive process for rapidly creating online RFIs, RFPs and E-Auctions for managing your entire range of e-sourcing activities — covering any category of spend and no matter how complex the requirements.
