Clarus is offering a fixed-price e-procurement package to help raise awareness among finance directors of the return on investment of implementing software.
The Fastpath to SRM (supplier relationship management) programme combines the e-commerce solutions provider's sourcing, analytics and e-procurement tools, web-based training and 17 non-consecutive days of consultancy to prepare users for online supplier relations.
For £100,000, firms can hold up to five strategic sourcing events and a one-bidder training seminar. They will also be able to automate up to 50,000 catalogue items from up to five suppliers.
The offer is open until the end of September, and users wishing to continue with e-sourcing and e-procurement beyond that can negotiate future terms to continue with either a hosted service or in-house management.
All participants will, however, have a perpetual licence for Clarus's e-procurement system for 30 users.
Clarus will demonstrate the package at the CIPS e-sourcing and procurement show at London's Olympia on 27 June.
