Spend Control Processes Working with Your Core Financial Management Systems

Your Spend Control processes do not operate in isolation – they work hand-in-hand with your core financial management systems. They may also work in conjunction with key operational systems. And increasingly, they exchange information with your suppliers and their systems as well. 

That’s why we’ve built the entire PROACTIS Spend Control and eProcurement suite with integration in mind. And that’s why we are as expert at integration as we are at Spend Control.
 
PROACTIS solutions can be integrated with any type of software application you may have. We have integrated PROACTIS Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) and Source-to-Contract (S2C) solutions with virtually all popular ERP and financial management systems, as well as with a wide range of industry-specific and special-purpose operational systems. Although every organisation’s information systems environment is different, we have refined the integration touch points with many commercial software systems so that only minor adjustments are likely to be needed to integrate PROACTIS into your environment

Supplier interaction is largely handled by built-in capabilities of the PROACTIS Supplier Network, as well as simple email or FTP file transmission methods. Using XML and other industry standards, file format translations for such things as electronic invoices are very straightforward.
 
“Every one of our 500+ customers operates their PROACTIS solutions integrated with their existing financial and operational systems every day.”
 
Most integrations are very straightforward and are put in place in a matter of days. But our integration specialists are also experienced at working with larger customers to help develop and deploy more complex integrations that may involve multiple ERP systems and any number of peripheral systems and tools. 

Examples:

  • Property & Facilities Management Company – PROACTIS integrated to six different ERPs
  • Multi-National Leisure Company – Spain uses PROACTIS integrated to Sage, UK to CODA
  • Distribution Company – PROACTIS used with PeopleSoft (General Ledger) and Oracle (Purchase Ledger)
  • Construction Company – PROACTIS integrated to multiple versions of industry specialist FMS, Viewpoint 
The PROACTIS integration framework is well structured but also highly flexible. With it, you can utilise a combination of flat file import/export methods as well as real time web services and punch-out capabilities.
 
You can also use it in conjunction with any enterprise middleware tools your organisation may have in place.
 
After years of experience integrating PROACTIS into all kinds of organisations large and small, you can be confident that we have you covered with the right level of guidance and/or turn-key implementation.
