EC Workflow

DIGITAL AUTOMATION OF ANY PROCESS

Collaborate with stakeholders more effectively, accelerating processes and maximizing ROI

EC eSourcing Solution
Your procurement organization likely has a host of processes or workflows that it’s involved with. From those within strategic sourcing, to category management, supplier management, contracting, supplier management, and others. These processes can be challenging to handle via just email. Not to mention that email intrusion is also one of the leading cyber security threats to confidential data and information.
Using an outdated system for the procurement management process can slow you down, leading to loss of efficiency, and ultimately, unhappy customers. No system at all can lead you to relying solely on email. From a risk management perspective, email intrusion is one of the leading cyber security threats to maintaining confidential and proprietary data.
Highlighted below are five common questions and areas we see procurement most frequently by leveraging workflows on:
  • Specifications – What items or actions do you require for the project?
  • Selections – How are decisions made? Can that process be digitized?
  • Contracting – Is there opportunity to automate your process and approvals?
  • Control – How is procurement able to keep control of processes and policies in place across the organization?
  • Measurement – How do you assess the effectiveness of the process and ensure correct documents are routed appropriately?
