Procurement should be as simple as any other everyday purchase. But for most organizations today, authorizing purchase requests, identifying suppliers, issuing POs, and making payments are needlessly complex.
If you’re still issuing paper purchase orders or you’re using procurement software with extremely limited and static catalogs, it’s time to make a change. E-procurement is about to make your life a whole lot easier.
Your buyers ‘go rogue’ and buy outside the system when they have to work with limited catalogs and confusing purchase methods.
Crazy paper (and email) trails
Everyone hates working with the long paper trails of analog systems, but that’s still how most organizations function today.
It’s just as confusing for your suppliers
If your employees hate your complex procurement process, you can bet your suppliers hate it too.
Not fit for a globalized economy
Traditional procurement is fine if you’re buying from local businesses. But when suppliers speak different languages and are on the other side of the world? Not so good.
Purchase like you buy anything else
An e-procurement platform gives you and your teams an easy-to-use marketplace for making fast purchases easy.
When it’s easy to buy on a marketplace, it’s easier to follow the rules and have a reliable and measurable record of purchases.
Control and clarity
E-procurement platforms let you see exactly what’s being bought in real-time, so you can always stay on top of spend.
