Sourcing Technology

Transpac Access has a distinct ability to leverage state-of-the-art sourcing technologies to analyze data, negotiate savings, and implement contracts for our customers. We help our clients select sourcing solutions that are effective and affordable for their businesses.

eSourcing is an effective tool to both attain additional savings and to reduce the cycle time of the bidding process. Generally, a material or service is a good candidate for being eSourced if it has a competitive supply base, sizeable spend, clearly defined requirements, and compressible margin.

Transpac Access professionals have eSourced more than a billion dollars of spend across a wide range of materials and services. We are experienced in all phases of the process:

  • Identifying appropriate materials to eSource
  • Finding potential suppliers
  • Eliciting quotes
  • Conducting site audits
  • Hosting customer buyers on site visits
  • Selecting awardees
  • Negotiating contracts
  • Conducting first-part approval 

Transpac Access is a formal partner of Ariba and provides sourcing services for the Ariba platform, the leading on-demand sourcing platform. We have used the Ariba solution to source in more than 30 industry sub-verticals. Since our founding in 2003, our firm has been closely aligned with Ariba. In fact, prior to co-founding Transpac Access, Inc., from 1998-2002, Transpac Access Managing Partner Carl Greppin served in domestic and overseas management roles for FreeMarkets, a supply chain management services firm that was acquired by Ariba in 2004. During his time with FreeMarkets, Mr. Greppin led FreeMarkets’ New Delhi and Taipei operations from startup to fully staffed, full-service offices.

We are also an SAP-endorsed provider of eSourcing Services on the SAP SRM platform.
