Frequently asked questions

What does Archlet do?

Archlet is a web-based sourcing software that offers intelligent and user-friendly sourcing (RFQ in Beta phase), sourcing analytics and sourcing optimization capabilities.

Our sourcing and bid import capabilities empower buyers to quickly collect, validate and correct supplier quotes to drive increased data quality. The sourcing analytics section enables buyers to quickly identify negotiation opportunities and provide immediate feedback to suppliers on their performance. Archlet’s combinatorial sourcing optimization capabilities allows users to model and optimize sourcing scenarios based on existing business constraints.

The modular nature of Archlet allows buyers to either create end-to-end sourcing experiences directly within Archlet or to use their current RFQ tool in combination with the Archlet analytics and scenario optimization apps.

How do you differentiate from other sourcing software tools?

Archlet was founded to rethink strategic sourcing applications because our initial client operated in a world dominated by Outlook and Excel spreadsheets. Available sourcing software is often rigid and complicated to use, resulting in low adoption and limited value add. We believe that Procurement teams deserve smart and flexible tools with high usability to make the complexity in sourcing manageable. Archlet is focused on delivering the smartest and most intuitive sourcing application that solves the problems of most buyers and makes them the hero in every negotiation.

Do you support integrations into existing technology stacks?

We can easily integrate with existing procurement suites and constantly expand our set of standard APIs to make the integrations even faster and the experience more seamless. SAP users can benefit from Archlet via seamless integrations into their SAP Ariba or S/4HANA product ecosystem.

Which spend categories do you support?

We are category agnostic and support all sourcing categories. While most of our clients currently start with categories such as raw materials (vitamins, ingredients, etc.), packaging (flexible, rigid, corrugated), logistics (road, air and ocean freight), MRO or professional services, we see relevant use cases across most direct and indirect categories.
