Top Three Advantages of Implementing E-Procurement Software Over Paper-Based Solutions

>PRWEB.COM Newswire

(PRWEB) April 22, 2014

More companies are feeling the pressure to source intelligently while minimizing unnecessary costs. This can be tough to accomplish without leveraging advanced technology, such as purchasing software. A truly comprehensive approach to procurement with a system that can fully integrate within your spend management and supply chain functions offers a dramatic competitive advantage in a crowded market.

Timothy D. Garcia, founder and CEO of Apptricity, provider of mobile enterprise software solutions, has identified the top three benefits of implementing an automated e-procurement solution instead of relying on paper-based solutions.

1. Accuracy. "As competent and creative as even the best-trained employees can be, they are prone to momentary lapses in attention that can cost companies thousands each year," said Garcia. "E-procurement solutions eliminate most of the manual data entry involved in the procurement process, which eliminates opportunities to make mistakes. Beyond that, having access to your company's previous purchasing data can be invaluable for forecasting."

2. Efficiency. "The reality is there's nothing efficient about managing anything via paper," says Garcia. "Beyond the storage concerns and the hassle of keeping track of endless boxes of paper-based procurement data, having the ability to instantly access all pertinent purchasing information online is vital. Additionally, with all ordering functions automated through an e-procurement system, purchasing can be handled quickly and according to established policy, with set authorizations and catalogs."

3. Negotiations. "Using technology to track costs among multiple suppliers can help ensure you are getting the best quality at the lowest price," says Garcia. "E-procurement solutions that offer built-in catalog management help companies ensure not only that they are getting the best deals, but that their employees are taking advantage of negotiated rates."
