EC Optimize

MORE VALUABLE RFx OUTCOMES

Rapidly create unlimited award scenarios that balance operational needs & savings

EC eSourcing Solution
Finding the optimal award is a mix of matching the right number of suppliers at the right price within your operational realities and organizational constraints. You may prefer to retain incumbents, utilize Tier 1 or diverse suppliers, or to incorporate dimensions like risk. The world does not stop for any single event or any individual person, and neither should your sourcing team. What if analysis and modeling required for award optimization could be easier and faster?
What if key decision-makers from procurement, finance, product development, and operations could run 15-25 scenarios remotely together in a Zoom in less than an hour to find the one scenario most optimal for all parties?
Scenario optimization is centered on driving the results and ultimate value that matters most to the organization. It allows you to maximize profit, efficiency, supplier risk management, and ultimately ROI delivered. Learn more below about how EC Optimize might help your organization.
