TACTICA maximizes its eSourcing platform on AWS Cloud



Speed, security, and comprehensive cloud platform makes AWS the clear choice




Hong Kong, 23 April 2019  - TACTICA, among the fastest-growing leaders in eSourcing solutions and services in Asia, today announced the latest release of TacticSource, its cloud-based eSourcing system which runs on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). This release features upgraded TacticSource speed, increased scalability and strengthened security and compliance.


TacticSource streamlines the entire sourcing process for enterprises — from purchase requisition to eRFQ creation, eAuction management, supplier scorecards and awards. By leveraging the power of reverse auction, customers can often achieve an average of 10-25% of procurement cost savings. Users can seamlessly embed pricing spreadsheets into eRFQs and leverage the power of MS Excel formula to collect complex pricing proposals from suppliers. With the advanced eTendering feature, customers can implement a two-envelope approach which separates the technical proposal from the cost proposal to ensure a fair evaluation. Multiple reports can be generated automatically, providing different views of the bidding data to facilitate award decision making. Using Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling function, Tactica is able to scale the service automatically when demand spikes, maintaining high quality of service and system uptime.


“AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, and has provided us with increased agility that enables us to deliver an enterprise-class solution to the market at an affordable price.” said Chee Wee LOKE, VP of Professional Services at Tactica. “We are excited about our move to the AWS Cloud. With TacticSource running in AWS, all TacticSource users benefit from a scalable, reliable, and secure global computing infrastructure.”
