Sourceability: FROM DISTRIBUTOR TO GAME CHANGER WITH PLATFORM ECONOMICS

Sourceability is redefining the process of procuring electronic components. We are accompanying the US company’s digital transformation from distributor of goods to a solution and technology provider. And are accelerating the procurement process of an entire industry.

Platform economics in its purest form

Sourceability’s customers and its own account managers alike needed a more efficient procurement process, access to products had to be made possible worldwide and availability and pricing of electronic components needed to be maximally transparent. The focus was therefore on technologically implementing a platform that guarantees Sourceability global scalability.

This is what we did

The Sourcengine platform, a digital marketplace that takes into account the interests of all parties involved in the ordering process. It ensures process efficiency, global product access and price transparency. The system processes and searches the data of 550 million articles. The new platform is connected to various third-party systems and enables quotes and stock enquiries from several hundred distributors.



» Congratulations to Turbine Kreuzberg. You have completed the project on a scale and to our satisfaction in ways that I would not have thought possible. «

Jens Gamperl, CEO Sourceability

The Transformation

90% INCREASE IN PROCUREMENT EFFICIENCY.

How Sourceability benefits specifically
An order that used to take days or weeks, depending on its size, can now be processed in just a few minutes. For example, the buyer uploads a bill of materials with thousands of items into Sourcengine by drag-and-drop and gets prices and availability listed within minutes. In addition, buyers now have the option of optimizing quotation lists in terms of price or delivery time.

Another advantage of Sourcengine is its flexibility: customers can plan partial deliveries for different production sites up to twelve months in advance. The platform also maps multi-level authorization structures of purchasing organizations.

This is how we do it

  • Drafting and managing of requirements
  • System architecture design
  • User experience and interface design
  • Platform development with Spryker Commerce OS and Vue.js
  • Search realization with Elasticsearch

  • Continuous integration with our CI pipeline based on Gitlab CI, Kubernetes clusters and Docker containers
