Using the solution in corporate procurement speeds up the tendering process, while making it more transparent. With fluenta sourcing , even those suppliers can join the procurement process through the web-based interface, who otherwise could not make a meaningful offer due to high costs or other reasons. The system covers the full administration of public procurement procedures in compliance with applicable law.
