A Simple Buying Process
Sourceit dramatically streamlines and automates the process of buying printing and marketing services.
Sourceit employs “product types” to guide users through the process of creating complete and accurate project specifications. With Sourceit, users only need to enter specifications that are relevant to the product or service they want to buy.
Once a project is described, Sourceit users simply select prospective suppliers to compete for the work. Sourceit automatically transmits the RFQ/RFP to the selected suppliers and provides the mechanism for those suppliers to submit their bids or proposals.
Communications with suppliers about ongoing projects are handled within Sourceit, which enables your buyers to manage proofing and issue any required change orders all within a single software application.
Easy Integration Eliminates Silos
In today’s interconnected business world, companies simply can’t afford to rely on technology systems that operate in silos. Sourceit has been designed and engineered with interoperability in mind.
Through Sourceit, integrations have been developed with many of the most widely used ERP and procure-to-pay applications, including SAP (Ariba), Coupa, Oracle, Synertrade, Zycus, PeopleSoft, and Salesforce.
In addition, RSN has developed and published an enterprise-class, fully documented application programming interface (API) for the Sourceit application. The Sourceit API makes it easy to integrate Sourceit with other enterprise software systems.
