Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) May 2, 2008
Iasta, a thought leader in the field of global supply management, has announced the publication of the e-Sourcing Handbook: A Modern Guide to Supply and Spend Management Success, through its new venture, Iasta Publishing Co.
Covering the full spectrum of the e-Sourcing cycle, the handbook is designed to help readers understand not only what spend analysis, e-RFx, e-Auction, decision optimization, and contract management are, but where and when to apply these technologies for maximum benefit.
The e-Sourcing Handbook is available at no charge from the Iasta website, in the form of a downloadable "e-book." Weighing in at almost 300 pages of content, this manuscript is the first of its kind, weaving together the best original content sponsored by Iasta, the unquestioned leader in supply management knowledge sharing. Iasta Publishing Co. has also made a convenient hard copy version available for purchase.
The book's primary author is Dr. Michael Lamoureux, a well-respected and independent voice in supply chain management. According to David Bush, CEO of Iasta, "Dr. Lamoureux has a laser-like focus on supply chain improvement and best practices. By mixing factual and informative wiki articles with blog entries and new original content, the e-Sourcing Handbook brings together an unprecedented amount of valuable information. The juxtaposition of these enables the reader to see the intersection of information and evangelism. This is the first effort of its kind where two very different resources are interlinked in a constructive and way."
The e-Sourcing Handbook and other resources, such as analyst reports, white papers, and benchmark studies are available at http://www.iasta.com/resourcecenter_.phtm. The book is also available through Amazon.com.
