eSourcing is a digital, web-based purchasing process. RWE’s Group Purchasing launched eSourcing solutions for invitations to bid and negotiations back in 2005 and has been developing these ever since. The application of this easy-to-use electronic tool in purchasing has allowed invitations to bid and negotiations to be made more efficiently and faster, in accordance with the applicable provisions (compliance). eSourcing includes requests for information (RfI), requests for proposal (RfP), requests for quotation (RfQ) and electronic auctions.
