Procurement software

The procurement process is error-prone and often presents many uncertainties for those involved.

One often only realises that the procurement policy has not been fully adhered to at the point of invoice processing. The Spend Cloud’s procurement software automates this process, which makes it simple, transparent and clear for all involved. The Procurement module offers a streamlined process, with approval now taking place in advance and ambiguities in procurement policy becoming a thing of the past.

Advantages of procurement software

  • Advantages of procurement software Prior control over ordering habits

define the ordering options, items and suppliers from whom employees may buy in advance. This brings the approval process forward to an earlier stage and the procurement policy is complied with automatically.

  • Streamlined procurement process

employees can simply order from preselected suppliers. Budget holders can approve invoices with a single click via app or desktop.

  • 3 way matching

combination with the Invoicing module enables automatic recognition and approval of invoices by means of 3-way matching. This makes the Purchase-to-Pay process even more efficient.
  • Clear analyses of the procurement process

the built-in analysis function is linked to suppliers, so you can easily carry out analyses of the procurement process. The top 25 suppliers based on procurement volume, or procurement figures per product group are just some examples of analyses that can easily be carried out with this functionality.

Procurement management, how does it work?

1. Preparation

You establish the ordering habits, items, and suppliers employees may purchase from in advance.

Employees have three ways of compiling an order via the procurement software:
1. In the supplier’s webshop by means of an OCI punch-out connection
2. From the internal catalogue
3. Via an order form

2. Approval

When ordering from suppliers’ webshops or the internal catalogue, employees only see items they are permitted to order. That way, the procurement policy is automatically adhered to and no checks are required on these orders. The procurement software shows in advance which orders require approval, which then go to the right person automatically.

 
3. Order placement

The order is automatically placed with the supplier after approval.

 
4. Checks
The order placer and authorised colleagues can view the order status at any time. After checking whether the whole order was delivered in full, it is registered in the Spend Cloud and the invoice can be processed.
5. 3-way-matching

In combination with the Invoicing module, 3-way matching then takes place.
The Spend Cloud checks whether the purchase order, registered delivery and invoice match one another. If this is the case, the invoice is approved automatically.
