Introducing ESM Source’s New Posting Board
Have you heard the exciting news?
We’ve launched a brand-new event posting board for ESM Source that improves supplier participation and engagement with your institution. The new posting board blends modern technology and design with a better user experience and more intuitive navigation so suppliers can more easily find and bid on relevant events.
Better experience. Happier suppliers
When suppliers can more easily find and filter events, they are more likely to bid on the ones that are most relevant to their business, saving their organization – and yours – valuable time.
New supplier capabilities such as filtering help ensure that suppliers can find the events that matter to them and understand which ones are published – and which remain unfinished. With tie-ins to the calendar, suppliers can use visual cues to easily spot upcoming deadlines and new events opening soon. And because the posting board is secure, logged-in suppliers enjoy a personalized, relevant experience.
Suppliers can more easily communicate with your procurement teams as well. Event Q&A allows suppliers to easily pose questions within an event. And a “red dot” notifies them when they log in that new responses are available.
Improved response quality. Better decision-making
Because suppliers know which events are a match – and which are not – they only bid on the ones that make sense for their organization. And that means you spend less time filtering out poorly-matched supplier responses. Further, when the right suppliers respond to the right bids, your process runs smoother and you gain increased transparency into pricing, allowing you to make the best decision for your institution.
With ESM Source and the new posting board, you can help stakeholders across your institution work more efficiently to make smarter sourcing decisions. Designed as a single cloud-based solution, the new posting board delivers the tools you need to launch and manage any kind of sourcing event, initiative, or RFx, improve supplier participation and engagement, and help everyone work more collaboratively to support your mission and vision.
