PROACTIS, a global Spend Control and eProcurement solution provider, today announced one of the UK's largest police authorities is reducing costs, optimising the use of available funds and maintaining essential financial controls with the PROACTIS Purchase-to-Pay software solution.
Prior to PROACTIS, the police authority had no computerised process for requisitioning. There were numerous ways to requisition goods and services, all of which were inefficient and gave little auditability. The police authority chose PROACTIS to deploy electronic tools for requisitions and orders, authorisation and automated workflow, personalised management dashboards, and invoice receipt, matching and processing.
The results of the project include:
- Streamlined purchase-to-pay process
- £100m spend on goods and services
- 8 divisions, 35 administration departments & 10,000 staff
- 80,000 orders processed per annum
- Essential financial controls and policy compliance
"PROACTIS is delivering substantial benefits to this Police Authority" said Simon Dadswell, Marketing Director. "In particular, the authority has benefited from the flexibility and configurability of PROACTIS purchase-to-pay solution. A powerful authorisation and workflow engine has provided the foundation to define and support diverse organisational structure, policies and procedures."
PROACTIS Purchase-to-Pay simplifies the purchasing process for employees so that they readily embrace it as the easiest way to buy the goods and services they need while following the organisations established policies and procedures. In addition, PROACTIS dramatically reduces the time, cost, and potential for error involved in the organisations handling and processing of incoming invoices.
