Another element of Source One’s 25th Anniversary celebration is the relaunch of th online eSourcing tool, WhyAbe. The ravamped tool will feature more robust eSourcing capabilities and contract management tools. While still offering a free model, the new WhyAbe will  also provide a team-based subscription model, WhyAbe Pro.  The low-cost, team-oriented model will feature a range of collaboration tools and other customization options to make eSourcing seamless for procurement groups. Procurement professionals can anticipate the new WhyAbe later this year.
