Autonomous Sourcing highlights

Remove 100% of workload

Automate the tender process for lower value and urgent spend and free your sourcing team to focus on strategic work.

Automate sourcing for any category

Easily create custom built automated workflows for any category based on its specific requirements with our workflow builder.

Create once, use often

Once built, each workflow can be used again and again, ensuring best practice is applied throughout the business.

Improve compliance

Because these workflows are custom built per category, approvals can be set as needed and remain with the sourcing team to ensure proper controls.

How it works

Outline the information needed to trigger the sourcing event request, or the event creation. Intake can either be completed manually via a form, or fully automated and triggered via any upstream system.

Add approval or conditional steps where required, select which suppliers should be considered for this type of request and which ones should be automatically selected.

Assign the workflow to the relevant users who will need to run that type of sourcing request.

Integrate with any upstream and downstream systems via API to ensure all systems are connected and data flows easily.

Autonomous Sourcing features

Success stories
What our customers say about us

“We've been using Keelvar since 2019 and currently have three different bots for three different categories. They are highly utilized with very happy users. There are two major things we look for and get with Keelvar. The first is usability and the ease of use for our users to initiate sourcing events. The second is to report, capture and track the data that comes out afterwards.”

Swaroopa Sahu, Senior Digitalization Specialist, Siemens

“We’ve got this awesome Optimizer that we use to run large scale, complex sourcing events. But then we’ve also got the autonomous sourcing piece of it now, which is built onto the Optimizer, so you don’t even have to train the teams to use it. You now have a bot do all the work of building and creating the events for you.” 

Sam de Frates, Vice President, Commercial – Europe, CIS & Turkey, Mars

“As one of the early adopters of Keelvar’s AI sourcing solution, I can honestly say it’s been groundbreaking for us in the Coca-Cola system. We now have a structured digital solution to manage all our “Off Tender” requests, removing 100s of emails from our inboxes on a weekly basis.”

Alan Smith, Procurement Director - Global Logistics (CEPG), Coca-Cola
