Today Buyers Meeting Point welcomes Dr. Alan Holland as our guest. Alan is the CEO of Keelvar Systems and holds a PhD in Computer Science. He is an expert in e-commerce, procurement and optimization and has been working with the Keelvar team to expand the rollout of highly innovative and disruptive technologies for procurement.

Keelvar recently sponsored a Sourcing Innovation whitepaper titled Optimization: Higher Adoption is Where True Value Lies. The whitepaper challenges many of the traditionally held notions about optimization within procurement.

In this conversation we discuss:

  • The fact that the time has come when procurement needs to see optimization as a requirements for more than just transportation events and location-based services. 
  • The useability improvements that have been made by today's optimization solutions, and how they align with the expectations of an increasingly 'digital' user base.
  • When in the sourcing process procurement should begin to leverage the capabilities of optimization.
