Procurement Software FAQs

What is Procurement software?

Procurement software, also known as eProcurement, is a process of requisitioning, ordering and purchasing goods/services via the internet.

At an enterprise level, a chief procurement officer will set policies for procuring goods and services for the business, with a goal of getting what the business needs for the best possible value. To accomplish this, there are several actions to take, such as: establishing supplier relationships, negotiating contracts, and setting purchase limits. In many cases, businesses choose to make this simpler and far more efficient by using procurement software. Procurement management software allows businesses the opportunity to boost efficiency within the procurement process.

Our eProcurement solution gives procurement leaders the ability to streamline and automate these policies, alongside vendor contracts and relationships in one system. It also enables employees to look through any catalogs and select the items they need in one centralized digital hub, instead of an elongated manual process.

Users of eProcurement software can manage purchases based on permissions set by an admin, enabling buying professionals to manage delegating responsibilities more accurately. Any supplier contracts can also be stored within your procurement platform alongside the vendor’s contact information, and payment terms, making managing relationships easier.

A procurement software system is essential for any business that wants to cost efficiency and control in mind. Learn more about our procurement software and eprocurement solutions here.

How does eProcurement work?

eProcurement is designed to streamline the regular procurement process. Instead of manually doing things such as exchanging contracts, sending out tender documents, and filling out supplier onboarding questionnaires, the entire process is automated. It also blends elements of procurement and finance to streamline operations between the two.

Here are the key components of an eProcurement solution:

  • Supplier management – refers to a buying organization administrating suppliers’ information, interactions, performance, and relationships. Supplier management involves gaining complete visibility on the information, interactions, and ongoing performance of an entire supplier database.

  • Supplier Management is typically comprised of two elements – Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) and Supplier Information Management (SIM).

  • Sourcing & Contract Management – details the end-to-end process an organization undertakes when identifying and sourcing products or services. Sourcing & Contract Management software suites deal with strategic sourcing activities, online supplier auctions and contract lifecycle management.

  • Procurement – describes the end-to-end process of ordering a product or service from a supplier, through to the organization making a payment of services rendered.

    Procurement is made up of product ordering, supplier requisitions, budget authorization, receipting of delivery, and invoice processing. Procurement software improves efficiency, savings, spend management, and transparency across the entire purchasing lifecycle.

  • Analytics – most tools used in businesses use some sort of analytics platform and eProcurement is no exception. Typically, analytics allow procurement and finance professionals to view and take corrective measures for spend across the whole business. This is usually achieved with easily configurable dashboards, giving decision-makers what they need to make informed decisions.
