Purchasing Manager

We can help you manage processes and cut costs

What is it?

A free web-based procurement tool that helps you manage your purchasing processes while cutting back your procure-to-pay costs. There's no cost or investment involved, as you don't need to upgrade your IT systems or software – all you need is internet access and email addresses for all users.

  • A cost-effective solution for high-volume, low-value, ad-hoc purchasing
  • Easy to use and can be operational within days of enquiry
  • Automates sections of the purchasing process
  • Supports the whole process, from ordering through to goods receiving
  • Implements controls and workflow management, tailored to the way you work and your requirements
  • You control the system, users, workflows and access rights
  • Provides you with a complete order history and audit trail, including any changes made to an order before approval
  • Lets your staff place their own orders, under your control, with a full suite of online management reports
  • Flexible and customisable so different departments or sites can work in the way they want with individually customised workflows and terminology

How does it help me?

  • Saves time: for users, procurement and finance, by streamlining your purchasing processes and speeding up supplier rationalisation
  • Increases efficiency: by ensuring your staff can focus on high-value tasks rather than spending time and additional cost on processing low value orders
  • Gives you more control: by keeping you up to date with the purchasing activity of your staff with RS, enforcing contract compliance and restricting maverick purchases,
  • Saves money: for users, procurement and finance, thanks to accurate, visible and clear data from requisition to invoice, reducing cost in order errors, product returns and invoice reconciliation.
