Module: Process Management

Process Management

Better visibility & less confusion = happy customers

Our process management module provides you with one place to manage all procurement processes, which provides better visibility for both stakeholders and the procurement team. How many emails or calls do you receive asking for an update on this RFP or that contract or when will that supplier be onboarded? Imagine a central location where all those answers could be found by each individual in a self-service manner without talking to you.

Our clients are using PM to organize many different processes – from the very simple (click here when you need procurement) to multi-step approval flows that include 12 steps across 12 different departments. PM is very flexible, so adding new steps or new approvals can be completed in under an hour by an admin user.

This includes routing contracts for approval, performing pre-RFP tasks or approvals, post-RFP (or pre contract) approvals and just about anything else that occurs in your procurement process today.

Your software is great! I have been involved in many of these (e-Sourcing negotiations) and in fact just finished one last week for Schering Plough. Your software is much less complicated and more user-friendly than any of the other ones I have used.
