API-driven Intelligent Sourcing Automation
Build an agile enterprise where a Center of Excellence is equipped with a team of bots to run tactical buying, while you maintain full control and oversight.
Automate your sourcing process with easily customizable Sourcing Bots. Examples of categories include MRO, Air Freight, Packaging, Engineering services and IT contractors.
Expect fast execution of events with increased competitive tension, without compromising quality or cost trade offs.
Utilize Scenario Analysis based on your business goals and past events. Integrate Sourcing Bots with external systems to trigger events based on market conditions or low stock levels.
In Level 5 Sourcing Automation, patterns in your past events are identified using Machine Learning to refine the Sourcing Bots' understanding of your strategic sourcing process.
The bots trigger and configure events, open & close rounds & identify optimal award scenarios for huge cost savings. Increased efficiency of events moves your focus to strategic sourcing.
COMPLIANCE & STRATEGY
Automated checks eliminate manual data management, guaranteeing full adherence to policy. Sourcing Bots enhance auditability and transparency, mitigating risk.
Keelvar has created a unique billing concept where companies are billed for Bot Actions, i.e. the work the Sourcing Bot has done.
A Bot Action is composed of a set of tasks that would otherwise be conducted manually. A typical Auction or RfQ may be comprised of 8-20 Bot Actions depending on how complex the process may be.
Examples of Billable Bot Actions are:
Looking up the requested good/service rate card
Seeking nearest alternatives the requested item if exact match isn’t present
Generate correct lane scope by looking up the liner country list
Generate a request summary for category managers
Message category managers
Determine invited suppliers
Message invited suppliers with invites / reminders
If all eligible suppliers have bid, message the category managers
Autopilot round opening/closing
Evaluate scenarios (including non cost objectives) to generate award recommendation
Generate an award summary for category managers
On award, update the rate card
Message the awarded and losing suppliers
Message the original requester
