Learn how innovations such as those within EC eAuctions can help improve sourcing results

In addition to sourcing and quoting, EC Sourcing Group offers many secondary negotiation options, including standard forward, reverse auctions, and soft auctions, which are a good alternative to the traditional reverse auction process.
