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.


Automated checks eliminate manual data management, guaranteeing full adherence to policy. Sourcing Bots enhance auditability and transparency, mitigating risk.

Get Billed for What You Use

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 to 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
