Supplier Collaboration

Here you can find all relevant information on electronic tools and systems used in Oerlikon’s procurement process.

Oerlikon uses eTools for calls for tenders, negotiations and order management.

We allow purchasing to be completed electronically on our eSourcing and Procure-to-Pay platforms. With eSourcing, suppliers can quickly and efficiently submit quotations. The Procure-to-Pay platform optimizes the ordering and payment processes.

Types of Offers in eSourcing

Request for Information (RFI)

A Request for Information (RFI) is generally a questionnaire that suppliers fill out to provide us with certain information before they offer us a quoted price. The suppliers’ competencies will be assessed based on their responses.

Request for Proposal (RFP)

With a Request for Proposal (RFP), suppliers make offers that include the price and other information specified by the buyer.

Online Negotiation

Reverse Auction is the online negotiation platform where numerous suppliers can submit an offer for the buyer’s transaction. The bidders can see their position in the auction and adjust their offers accordingly.


To optimize order processing, the relevant buyer at Oerlikon will ask the suppliers to process the transactions using the Procure-to-pay platform.
