Simplify steps and improve collaboration to get the best sourcing outcomes.
Streamline sourcing events, from RFX creation to assessing bids and awarding contracts.
The creation of sourcing events can be complex and time consuming. Unimarket Sourcing simplifies this process, helping you confidently create RFPs, RFIs, or RFQs with standardized question templates that align with your organization’s requirements.
Use our bid request builder to simplify and standardize the creation of sourcing events with question templates that can be saved for reuse. Pricing requirements and supporting documentation can be added so suppliers have all the information they need to make the most informed bid.
And because going to market often takes expertise from different departments, Unimarket Sourcing makes working on sourcing events with stakeholders, subject matter experts, and participating suppliers easier than ever.
Why Unimarket Sourcing?
Collaboration made easy
Build a team of collaborators and assign stakeholders and subject matter experts to review sections. You can also leverage buying power by partnering with other organizations in cross-community sourcing events.

How does Unimarket Sourcing work?
Unimarket Sourcing makes sourcing events easier to manage across their entire life cycle.
1. Create your RFX
Simplify and standardize your sourcing process with our intuitive bid request builder.
Select your type of bid request (RFP, RFI, or RFQ), attach supporting documentation, and set customized scoring criteria. Simplify future sourcing events by creating and saving questions as templates for later use.
2. Invite suppliers
Once your sourcing event is ready, simply choose which suppliers you want to participate.
Either select suppliers already within our marketplace or send invitations to those not part of our marketplace. If you want to cast an even wider net, make it available to all by publishing a public link.
3. Review and award
Collaborate with your team to review submissions through our online platform. Ensure the right people review each section and make assessments easier with our weighted score calculator.
If you’re running an RFQ and your evaluation is complete, just add the awarded bid to your shopping cart to generate a requisition.
