PRIMARY GOALS FOR e-SOURCING

How we Help

JB’s e-Sourcing system is an intuitive software platform that combines simple, easy to use navigation with robust data management capabilities. Our e-Sourcing suite includes eRFx software and encompasses:
  • A simple Request For Information (RFI) tool for quick and easy vendor discovery:
    • For simple supplier discovery or supplier audits;
    • Create pre-qualification questionnaires or simple surveys to quickly qualify your suppliers;
    • Shortlist and export suppliers directly into an e- RFP or e-Auction, after e-RFI ends;
    • Repository for all documents, history, and activity related to the e-RFI;
    • Clone features to a new e-RFI;
    • Full Excel integration (allows you to build the questionnaire in Excel, and import and export responses directly to an e-RFI).
  • a Request for Proposal (RFP) tool for more in-depth supply market investigations:
    • Allows you to collect information that includes pricing (without an e-Auction);
    • Programmed in multiple languages, along with multi-lingual support;
    • Reduces manual paperwork and eliminates processing errors;
    • Panel e-RFP’s or one-offs;
    • Upload documents like Billing Guidelines, NDAs, etc. for supplier acceptance;
    • Collaborate with colleagues by inviting them to co-author the event, to observe the event, and/or to weigh and score questions;
    • Flexibility of question types (multiple choice, text questions, radio button, grid, check box, drop down, and more);
    • Matrix for over 400,000-line items and 1 million data points (ideal for AFA’s, e-discovery services, and other complex events);
    • Create “favorites” list to easily invite pool of suppliers specific to each event (e.g., “IP Panel Firms”);
    • Robust analysis of responses – by section, by question, by scorer, by respondent, and a host of other metrics – visually displayed in charts and graphs (also exportable to Excel);
    • Best-in-class templates (and question library) by area of law, e-RFP type, matter (can create your own or ask for assistance);
    • Clone features to a new e-RFP;
    • Messaging system that functions like your private email inbox (with public and private capabilities for your interactions with suppliers);
    • Ability to shortlist suppliers and run additional rounds of an e-RFP;
    • Export your e-RFP directly into an e-Auction;
    • Standardize on documented, repeatable, best-practice processes to drive best-value;
    • Repository for all documents, history, and activity related to the e-RFP;
    • Easily audit all activity on each e-RFP;
    • Full Excel integration (allows you to build the questionnaire in Excel, and import and export responses directly to an e-RFP).
  • An e-AUCTION SUITE for live, dynamic bidding
    • Allows you to collect pricing;
    • Includes all functionality of the e-RFP;
    • Stimulates more competition with live, up to date pricing;
    • Ideal for AFA’s, e-discovery services, and a host of non-legal categories’ spend;
    • Run timed event allowing respondents to outbid each other;
    • Timed events can be Japanese e-Auctions (wherein the events have timed rounds that lower the prices by a predetermined amount each round and respondents can accept or decline new pricing by round), English, or Dutch e-Auctions;
    • Reverse (if you are buying) and forward (if you are selling) capabilities;
    • Enable real-time bidding supported by different strategies, extension rules, safety nets, and other advanced features of the software that allow complete control over the auction;
    • Can have multiple suppliers participate at the same time in the e-Auction, yet bidding on select sections of the event;
    • Real time (exportable) analysis, graphs, charts – so you have a complete picture in real time;
    • Live chat feature during e-Auction;
    • Detailed audit log tracking all actions – ready for filtering and print;
    • Full Excel integration.
