PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2014) - Intesource -- the go-to e-sourcing provider in the retail, grocery, and restaurant industries -- has released its first mobile app for sourcing professionals. The app provides Intesource customers with instant access to sourcing event information from anywhere, at anytime.
While forty percent of the U.S. workforce is expected to be mobile by 2016, according to Gartner, most sourcing and procurement technologies still require local or traditional web-based connections -- which limit information access and hurt overall productivity. In fact, with today's launch, Intesource becomes one of the first and only e-sourcing providers to offer mobile access to e-sourcing events.
"E-sourcing can have a transformative impact on a company's supply chain, but maximizing its value requires access to robust and actionable data, deep market expertise, and the ability to run a high number of events," said Gabriel Gabaldon, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Intesource. "By providing procurement pros with anytime, anywhere access to their e-sourcing projects, our mobile app gives customers more control over their sourcing projects than ever before."
Intesource's new mobile app gives users the access and information they need wherever they are -- whether at home, in a meeting or on the road. The app provides unprecedented visibility into sourcing events and history, enabling procurement pros to conduct a wide range of mobile tasks, including:
- Accessing high-level event information and drilling down to vendor and item activity
- Searching sourcing projects by name, date, or status
- Receiving event reminders sent directly to mobile device via push notifications
- Quickly and easily adding important dates to users' calendars
- Customizing the mobile dashboard to optimize ease and comfort of use
The Intesource mobile app -- available free of charge now on iTunes -- requires iOS 6.1 or later and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
