The powerful online ordering system allows users to place orders with multiple suppliers through one single web portal.
The system can be tailored with preferred product lists so your staff can order only approved contract line items. Furthermore, the system has cut-off time alerts and order countdown notification, ensuring you will never miss an order date.
Record Supplier Deliveries
Deliveries can be recorded in the system in seconds, using the supplier order as a template.
Notes can be added to deliveries, so that suppliers’ performance and KPI’s can be easily monitored and tracked. Part-deliveries and product substitutions are simple to manage directly via tablet or phone when the order arrives, reducing paperwork and the requirement for double-entry.
The heart of the purchase-to-pay process. Supplier invoices are processed automatically as soon as they arrive digitally, directly from suppliers.
Every invoice-line is checked against the contract price, and the associated booked-in delivered quantity. If both these checks pass, the invoice is automatically reconciled and is added to the payment batch. Should any of these checks fail, the invoice is ‘held back’ for investigation. Credit requests can be raised within the system and sent directly to the supplier for processing. Once received, credits are matched automatically against credit requests and held back invoices are released for payment if appropriate.
The system vastly reduces unnecessary administration as it enables ‘purchase coding’ rules to be configured.
When an invoice arrives, the appropriate cost centre and nominal code is automatically assigned to each invoice line. A full breakdown of nominal expenditure can be viewed instantly. Additionally, information is included within the finance export; reducing the possibility of human error and saving considerable time.
You can view real-time granular detail management information in a series of dynamic customisable tables, graphs and charts.
The system enables you to analyse spend and drill down into data by site, supplier, category and even at product level. Reports can be exported in a variety of different formats for further offline analysis if required.
