Sourcing Optimization

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.

Sourcing optimizer is for:

Advancing from first-generation sourcing optimization tools
Enterprise and mid-sized global customers with supply chains
All spend categories; scalable from spot bids to large-sized events
All buyer and supplier skill sets


If you’re feeling stuck or need to get more out of e-sourcing and optimization, Keelvar helps you:

Boost productivity with out-of-the-box automation features.
Apply optimization to more spends in logistics, direct materials, and indirect categories.
Improve supplier engagement and outcomes.
Equip yourself with the right technology for the journey towards procurement automation.
