E-Sourcing with Software as a Service

Quick implementation time and configurable features offer a robust e-sourcing SaaS solution for your buying organization.

E-Sourcing with a Software as a Service SaaS Solution

mdf commerce e-procurement SaaS software allows customers to enjoy the benefits of traditional procurement software security, without taking on hosting costs or tolerating downtime resulting from the software updating process. Data such as bid information and related documentation is stored and hosted on the e-procurement cloud but still owned by the customer, ensuring that buying organizations benefit from the security of cloud storage while doing away with resource-intensive upkeep of project records. Updates to the procurement software are done automatically via the internet, and customers do not have to have specific hardware or equipment installed to run SaaS products.

Software as a Service is the best option available to companies considering an investment in procurement software. Often referred to as ‘the cloud’, procurement software as a service is robust, powerful software that is deployed online rather than installed on individual computers, allowing administrative functions to be performed from any location where internet access is available.

Key Challenges:

  • Long implementation time frame
  • IT and technical involvement 
  • Future expansion and changes
  • Customized equates to higher costs

E-procurement systems of the software as a service model allow for rapid implementation with an organization’s current infrastructure environment. The mdf commerce sourcing suite delivers a powerful, cloud-based solution that can be up and running for your business within a short time.

Procurement Software & IT involvement

The mdf commerce sourcing suite allows for complete integration of our e-sourcing solution without requiring the use of valuable internal IT resources.

Fewer IT resources needed for integration means lower business costs for buying organizations.

Procurement Software Updates

I remember getting on the copier and making 20 copies of a bid, putting it in envelopes, tracking right addresses, and putting tons of postage on everything to distribute, as well as standing at the fax machine for an entire afternoon faxing addenda and verifying receipts. Now the process takes me less than five minutes to distribute a bid and about a minute to post an addendum, no postage necessary. The distribution is so simple.
