The beginning of a new era of procurement automation

By Rusty Zosel ON Oct 3, 2012 6:15:00 AM

Procurement automation has opened the door to opportunities not only to reduce costs, but to improve efficiency and to ensure quality consistency. Think of it this way, as the one responsible for your company’s purchasing practices, you have a lot on your plate. It’s one thing to negotiate purchasing contracts with vendors for all your food, medical supplies, office supplies, housekeeping supplies, and other supplies purchases. It’s another to make sure that those of your organization who place the orders actually receive the benefits from all your hard work. This is where Order Guide Management (OGM) comes in. In short, OGM is the ability to control which products your users have access to according to the terms negotiated.

Technology giving procurement services new looks

By Procurement Partners Staff ON Apr 27, 2012 6:30:00 AM

Procurement specialists have long been recognized as strategically key players in business, but their roles, like most others in the company, are changing with the advance of technology.

Where once procurement services were seen solely in terms of their role in controlling costs, managing inventory, and coordinating vendor services, a recent survey of financial officers has shown that procurement experts are in a position now to contribute to a company on many new fronts.

Procurement has traditionally been recognized and rewarded solely on the basis of its cost-cutting ability. But through the productive use of automated systems, the function has been able to move beyond simply meeting savings targets to help address larger, more-complex issues such as managing cash and capital, managing risks to business performance, and expanding into new markets or business lines.” said Sam Knox, senior vice president and Director of Research at CFO Publishing, in a statement announcing the release of the latest survey.

The study attributes this new role for procurement to developing technology and envisions even greater roles for procurement experts if they continue developing their supplier networks, bring additional automation to their processes, and increase efficiencies.

Procurement experts have long served business interests in some very essential ways. Their impact on business can be even more significant.

Save Money by Improving Your Procurement Process

By Procurement Partners Staff ON Apr 5, 2012 5:48:00 PM

With prices rising, it may be time to take a closer look at procurement. For many businesses, the procurement process represents a valuable opportunity to save money and reallocate resources. In a recent Bain & Company executive survey, more than half of the respondents said cost pressures constrain their ability to make strategic investments. Considering that procured costs can represent 25 to 60 percent of a company’s total costs, it’s well worth examining how this process could be managed more effectively.
