So why not try Market Dojo today and start your eSourcing (r)evolution?
Procurement professionals have used emails and spreadsheets ever since they were invented. Procurement professionals continue to use these tools today although face challenges with the centralising and managing of data. Although there are other solutions, these mainly take the form of modules within ERP systems which tend to be forgotten bolt-ons that lack the usability or design to become an effective tool for the strategic procurement professional.
Market Dojo initially saw an opportunity to help buyers with negotiating (via reverse auctions) by creating an easy to use, on-demand platform. However the scale of the challenges facing buyers was realised and Market Dojo responded to our clients, in turn evolving the traditional methods of eSourcing.
Our solution has continued to evolve bringing buyers and supplier engagement online through on-demand tools and enterprise solutions. Our team has grown and encompasses our philosophy to help procurement professionals become ever more successful in saving time and money. We have created a platform for buyers, managers and CPO’s to manage their supplier interaction and negotiate effectively in a single centralised solution.
In 2022, we became part of Esker, with Esker acquiring a majority share of Market Dojo. As part of the acquisition, our flagship module Sourcing Dojo, will enable Esker to bring eSourcing into its platform proposition. You can read more about the story here.
