eBuilder Procurement Cloud Process automates the business procurement process. Let it take you into the realm of eprocurement.
Automate your Procurement Process
Ensuring that authorized purchasers order the correct products from the right suppliers on the best terms is a must in today’s competitive markets. Purchasing costs can often be as high as 50% of a company’s total costs, and the related administrative costs of purchasing are sometimes greater than the cost of the items being purchased.
eBuilder Procurement process automates the procurement/purchasing process and integrates a company’s buyers with its suppliers together with the relevant IT systems on both sides. Together, these elements constitute the company’s value network of collaborating partners. eBuilder Procurement process can automate the procurement workflow end-to-end, from the order to the delivery and invoicing (manual steps can of course be configured in the process). This improves your organizational efficiency and reduces the administrative costs of all steps in the procurement process. It significantly enhances your company’s control over procurement activities at all levels. This is true eprocurement; far beyond traditional purchase order software and post award management.
Profiles in the eBuilder Procurement Cloud Process contain definitions of, among others, your company or organization’s hierarchy, cost centers, managers, administrators, and chart of accounts. They also contain users' preferences, such as the language displayed when working with the system.
eBuilder Procurement’s management of agreements/contracts speeds and simplifies price list administration. It includes functionality for reception and verification of deliveries, product comparisons, article selection, pre-accounting, and activation.
The order functions structure and simplify "shopping cart" orders and orders based on existing and approved price lists from connected suppliers. They include a highly configurable approval workflow. This is sometimes called post-award management.
Detailed delivery reports are created and maintained step-by-step, based on the original order, order confirmation, dispatch advice, and manual entry when the goods have been received. You get end-to-end display of all your procurement transactions.
Invoicing is configurable and can be highly automated. Electronic invoices of any type or format (order based, periodic, scanned, etc.) can be processed. The Cloud Process automatically verifies the accuracy of invoices, including article-level matching and matching with the relevant contract.
The approval workflow is configurable, including a fully automated approval process.
Finally, accounting is automatic as is export to the company's or organization’s back-end financial systems.
