Extend the power of sourcing optimization to more spends, more buyers, more suppliers.
Sourcing Optimizer is a SaaS product that surpasses first-generation sourcing optimization tools by focusing on ease-of-use, workflow automation efficiencies, supplier engagement, and scale.
Sourcing optimization enables sourcing teams to go beyond simplistic supplier award decision-making that is driven solely by a lowest-cost model. Buyers can collect a wide range of price and non-price bid information from suppliers, and then analyze multiple awarding scenarios based on those criteria and other constraints. At Keelvar, we believe optimization shouldn’t be complicated to use. Our Sourcing Optimizer is designed for adoption, reach, and impact.
If you’re feeling stuck or need to get more out of e-sourcing and optimization, Keelvar helps you:

Over the years, I have used many bidding tools from different vendors, but Keelvar is the one I have liked most of all. As a supplier submitting bids, Keelvar is very easy to navigate, very comprehensive, and communicates the tender process very clearly and nicely. Its light design makes the work easier as well. My thumbs up to the tool creators, good job!
