ITW’s eSourcing (electronic sourcing) application enables and facilitates the exchange of information between ITW and our suppliers. The eSourcing tool is one way we give suppliers an opportunity to bid and compete fairly for ITW’s business. The eSourcing platform hosts projects such as Requests for Information (RFI), Requests for Quote (RFQ), and auctions. The implementation of this tool only changes the way we distribute and receive project information, while the review and award processes remain the same. Not all ITW sourcing projects will run through the eSourcing tool and projects will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
What is e-Sourcing?
ITW’s eSourcing application is a web-based portal where current and potential suppliers will access bid information for active projects. The bid questions and/or pricing will be completed online or in an Excel workbook that will be uploaded into the eSourcing platform. Suppliers can access and modify their bid as often as they would like as long as the event is open. Training materials will be provided to suppliers, ensuring successful completion of events (please see ‘eSourcing Tutorials for Suppliers’).
What are the benefits of e-Sourcing?
- Reduce overall bid to award time
- Streamline evaluation and analysis process
- Increase bid quality and compliance
- Increase supplier collaboration
