That’s why Bonfire Strategic Sourcing Software does more than bring your entire procurement processes online. Bonfire unlocks procurement’s full potential by making it easy for your team and your stakeholders to connect, collaborate, and leverage industry insights (surfaced from Bonfire’s library of 40,000+ projects) to help you work smarter, make decisions faster, and drive outcomes like never before.
Some eSourcing platforms were designed to handle simple bids, but fall short when scoring information from proposals. That means you’re still left trying to get the attention of your evaluation committee with email, asking them to read long PDFs, then adding their scores and emailing it all back. Not to mention, these solutions sometimes require Adobe Flash to run, even though the browser plugin will no longer be supported by the end of this year. Bonfire was designed to make running your bids and RFx processes easy and engaging for everyone involved—no Adobe Flash required.
Bonfire’s award-winning client experience is here for your buyers, evaluators, and vendors, and the platform’s easy-to-use tools were designed with both procurement and non-procurement users in mind—ensuring the platform is loved by all. In fact, 71% of Bonfire users login to the Strategic Sourcing Platform at least once a week, and 92% of users would recommend Bonfire to their peers.
