About Us

The eSourcing Forum, which was created in 2005, was the first vendor blog site in the Sourcing industry. The initiative initially started when Jason Busch, Editor of Spend Matters, insisted that Iasta’s CEO, David Bush, develop the blog for branding building and exposure. Today, eSourcing Forum is designed to keep sourcing, procurement and supply chain professionals sharp through collaborative discussions about trending topics, best practices, and industry news.
