The Marketplace will service customers tail spend needs for products. Tail spend means ad-hoc, low volume and usually low value spend requirements. It will not initially address services. It will provide a dynamic, pre-qualified and extensive supply base without the need to bring your own suppliers and plug them in. The Marketplace will provide an end-to-end service for customers through a single contracting entity, including management of the system, the supply chain, logistics, buyer registrations, support and management information.
Various customer engagement activities have been undertaken including interactive webinars with 100+ attendees, requirements survey, bilateral meetings, customer forums and user groups. These have instructed our evolving set of requirements for The Marketplace.
Various supplier engagement activities have been undertaken including a webinar, request for information, clarification question process and bilateral meetings. These activities have helped define the capability of the current offerings in-market and highlight potential supplier roadmaps for The Marketplace.
