sourceit is a dedicated procurement solution for purchasing and managing marketing services. The system includes a sourcing module, which helps automate the process of creating requests for quotation (RFQs) via standardized workflows as well as user-defined templates.
Once RFQs have been sent to suppliers, sourceit uses supplier key performance indicators (KPIs) to award jobs to the most suitable suppliers. sourceit is especially suited to the needs of companies that broker and manage printing services.
Once jobs have been awarded, they can be managed using the milestones that users define for them. One feature for handling print jobs is the ability to upload numerous versions of a given piece of artwork and manage any changes to it. Users can even define a “catalogue” of products and services that they commonly use.
sourceit is a cloud-based system that is priced on a monthly basis. Subscription fees are determined according to the number of users licensed on the system, with additional per-transaction charges for individual jobs and orders.

We manage over 10,000 transactions each year, 300 suppliers and 200 individual client stakeholders, I have a team of nine staff who manage the entire requirements of our client and sourceit is the backbone to everything we do.
The reporting module is fantastic, it provides us detailed reporting on every aspect of every transaction, which for government clients is critical.
I'd love to see the catalogue functionality updated, while is works really well and is fully integrated with the sourcing module, a refresh would be great.
Ease of use is critical for us and our clients, we have found sourceit to be really easy for our staff and our clients to learn. Its not a cheap piece of software, but I have admit that I believe strongly that we get value for money.
While its cloud based with multiple levels of redundancy, it was the only application of its type that we found had a full DR site functioning to ensure BCP was at the very highest levels.
