How eProcurement helps to simplify your processes
More cost transparency and increased efficiency help avoid unproductive manual tasks
How does your organisation send purchase orders and receive invoices and order confirmations? Via phone, email, in stores and electronically? Do you need to manually match invoices to their corresponding purchase orders? Would you like to simplify these processes and save money?
eProcurement offers various benefits that increase efficiency and help you avoid unproductive manual tasks. When you consider the many ancillary costs associated with purchasing, an electronic order costs only a fraction of a manual order.
Centralised eProcurement processes help to optimise the work of purchasing officers. When orders are placed with the in-house system or in the eProcurement platform, purchasers don't need to jump between websites and make phone calls to place their orders. Instead, they receive order confirmations, shipping notes and invoices that are automatically matched to the orders, helping avoid duplication of effort. This maximises time savings and allows your staff to spend more time on strategic procurement.
When placing an order, are your purchasers still copying product codes and prices from a paper catalogue? Would you rather have a catalogue directly linked to your in-house system that shows your customised prices? How about having the ability to fill your online shopping cart and then transfer it over to your own system to place the order?
eProcurement gives you better cost transparency. Our data sourcing solutions make sure you always have product and pricing data at your fingertips. We can provide you with an electronic catalogue in your preferred format or establish a link between your system and the Hilti website. It’s easy. Market-leading eProcurement platforms, like Coupa and Ariba, also offer great spend management modules that give you a comprehensive look at your historical spend data and help you to better plan for the future.
