Tackle procurement challenges

If purchasing inefficiencies haunt your organization, we have a solution to help.

Inefficiencies are commonplace

When organizations need to find and buy the indirect goods and products needed to run their business, it’s typically an inefficient, non-transparent process. Employees often waste time and energy sourcing goods, tracking down uncontrolled spending, and reconciling rogue invoices and payments. Complicated processes (or unwillingness to follow them) and confusing systems add even more frustration to the matter. Unfortunately, these are common experiences we can all relate to in one way or another.

Does this sound familiar?

Let’s take, for example, an employee notices your office has run out of coffee. What happens next? Who is involved in the seemingly simple task of purchasing more coffee? Many times, the process looks something like this:

The employee might ask around, “Who can order more coffee?”, or they may even purchase the coffee on their own and expense it at the end of the month. If there is a designated person responsible for ordering coffee, the requestor may verbally tell, email, or even post a sticky note on the that person’s desk to make the request. The person placing the order might physically go to a store, dig through websites, or even manually look through a catalog. It’s highly likely they may purchase from a non-approved supplier. As you might expect, there’s no purchase order, which means no visibility into the purchase until month-end expense reports or when accounting receives an invoice. Finally, the accounting department must play detective to find out where the request came from and what it was for. Each step wastes valuable time and energy, which is exponential when you think about all the purchasing needs for your organization.

Can you relate? If your process sounds like our example, we have a solution for you.
