eCollaborationOerlikon is using eTools for tenders, negotiations, and purchase order management
In order to continuously monitor and improve the performance of suppliers, Oerlikon utilizes a set of electronic tools and system (eTools) such as eSourcing and eCatalog. We enable eProcurement through our eSourcing, eCatalog and Procure-to-Pay Platform. eSourcing allows suppliers to submit their offer quickly and efficiently, eCatalog allows automated and compliant requisition of goods and services, while Procure-to-Pay Platform optimizes the ordering and payment processes.
eSourcing Event Types:
RFI (Request for Information)
A Request for Information (RFI) is typically designed as a questionnaire for suppliers to complete. Information is gathered prior to receiving pricing information.
Suppliers’ capabilities are judged based on their responses.
RFP (Request for Proposal)
In a Request for Proposal (RFP), suppliers submit proposals consisting of price and other buyer-specified information.
The Reverse Auction is the online negotiation platform where many suppliers may bid for a buyers’ business. The bidders are able to view information about their positions in the auction and may revise their offers accordingly.
