The ICM Sourcing App Built on the Icertis Contract Management Platform Places Contracts at the Center of the Sourcing Process
Bellevue, Wash., September 18, 2017 – Icertis, the leading provider of enterprise contract management in the cloud, today announced the introduction of the ICM Sourcing application, expanding the company's growing list of business applications built on the Icertis Contract Management (ICM) platform. The pace of business continues to accelerate and leading companies are re-imagining their foundation of commerce. With the launch of the ICM Sourcing app, forward thinking companies now have a foundational contracting platform and sourcing application for the next decade.
The Icertis approach
In today’s high velocity, rapidly changing, complex sourcing environment, procurement organizations must deliver value far beyond cost savings. Reimagining the contract management foundation and placing it in the center of the sourcing process is the key to that transformation – contracts are the single source of truth for the obligations, entitlements and risks in supplier relationships. This approach enables procurement departments to optimize the entire source-to-contract process, ensuring compliance, minimizing risk, improving collaboration in addition to increasing savings.
“To thrive in an era of increasing business velocity, changing regulatory requirements and supply chain risks, procurement organizations must create strategic agility in their sourcing process,” said Samir Bodas, Co-founder and CEO at Icertis. “The ICM Sourcing app leverages the enterprise-wide supplier relationships enshrined in contracts, and applies the ICM platform’s cognitive analytics, compliance framework, and risk management capabilities to proactively monitor contractual commitments and mitigate risks.”
