Willow Grove (May 30, 2017) – Coming this Summer, the world’s only free e-sourcing platform,, is receiving major updates! In our commitment to delivering new and state of the art tools to our WhyAbe users, Source One is bringing new functionality and an enhanced user experience to the platform. Since its inception in 2004, WhyAbe has been the preferred e-sourcing platform for countless organizations seeking a hassle-free solution for finding and engaging suppliers. The updates come in response to the tool’s continued popularity and demand for additional functionality to ease the sourcing process.

The reinvigorated platform will boast a much improved experience complete with new tools and subscription-based options: Free and Pro. Just as before, the Free form of WhyAbe will continue to be available absolutely free for both buyers and suppliers. Free, designed for individual users, allows users to develop and execute RFIs, surveys, RFX events, and reverse auctions; upload, store, and manage contracts; and collaborate with suppliers in a much more streamlined system.

The new Pro model, designed for team use, boasts added capabilities to promote collaboration including increased storage capacity, administrative controls, shared templates, event sharing and scoring, and NDA process management tools. WhyAbe Pro will even allow you to have a custom branded URL.

These drastic enhancements mean an entire new site and platform for Soon, the old WhyAbe site will officially be retired. Users of the original site will no longer be able to upload new content or run events. Worried about losing your data? Don’t be. All data currently stored in the site can be exported, including previous RFx events, bids, contract and more. Users of the old WhyAbe can make the transition to the new version by exporting current data, registering for the new WhyAbe site, and uploading content.

We understand the headache of transitioning to a new platform, but due to the significant extent to which the site is being updated, we simply are unable to migrate current data to the new site. We hope that you stick with us through this period of transition and enjoy the new features the revamped WhyAbe has to offer.   And for those loyal WhyAbe users who wish to become Pro users; we’ll be offering discounted pricing.
