Solutions for Procurement

 

We've got what it takes
to enable you to succeed


PROACTIS understands Procurement. We can help you increase
savings, reduce risk and improve efficiencies by increasing your
organisation’s level of Spend under Management. With PROACTIS,
you'll have the power to tackle your immediate objectives and
long-term goals.
We can help with your immediate priorities:
As Procurement Director, you'll almost certainly want to improve bottom-line performance in the near term - and already have a good idea of what needs tackling.  
With PROACTIS, you can address those immediate priorities quickly and cost-effectively. 
For example, we can help with specific tasks, so you can:
Gain a clear picture of where your organisation is spending today.

Improve the quality of your supplier records.

Get a handle on your organisation’s existing supplier contracts.

Help run a series of online auctions in selected categories.
The more of our solutions you use together, the more you benefit. So a 'big bang' approach delivers big results, quickly.

But with PROACTIS, you've also got the freedom to go at your pace, simply choosing the tools you need to today - and adding to them as you go. Either approach works well.
We Can Help with Your ‘Big Picture’ Capacity, Process and Talent Goals

As Procurement Director, you'll also have higher level issues that impact your ability to do more for your organisation. As we work with enterprises around the world, Procurement Directors consistently tell us about three 'big picture' goals they have about the way their organisation purchases goods and services.
They want to:
1
Increase 
procurement 
capacity 
2
Standardise 
on procurement 
best practices
3
Build more 
procurement 
talent 
Do these sound familiar to you? If so, it's no surprise - because these goals are almost universal among Procurement Directors. That's why we shape our solutions and services specifically to address them.
1. 
How we help 
you increase 
procurement
capacity 

By automating routine tasks and streamlining
key processes, our solutions significantly
increase the effective capacity of your
procurement team. 

With our solutions, you can:
Liberate your team from non-value-added tasks by automating many routine administrative functions and providing automatic alerts when key actions are required.

Gain rapid access to important information your team needs. 
Utilise category experts within your organisation’s operational departments while ensuring adherence to procurement policies and procedures.
Enable more self-service buying throughout your organisation while ensuring compliance with purchase policies and driving high on-contract spend.

Our range of services can also free up extra time for your team, so they can focus more on core activities like supplier development and contract negotiation.

How we help you standardise on procurement best practices

PROACTIS eProcurement software solutions fundamentally help you standardise around best practices by providing a framework of process and document templates, automated workflow and business rules, a single repository of information, and capture of all spend activity. With consistent procedures and a single source of information, good procurement practices come naturally. 

With our solutions, you can:
Automatically guide your procurement team and everyone involved through standardised, transparent, fully tracked sourcing processes from collaborative requirements definition through structured supplier selection.   

Automatically guide employees through the right authorisation processes, and to the right established suppliers and contracts – or the right spot sourcing process – for what they need.
Establish an online platform and process flows for consistent two-way interaction between you and your suppliers from initial registration and qualification to RFX responses and eAuctions, to PO placement, invoicing and payment.
Additional support and expertise is also available via our services. We'll act as an extension to your team, following the standardised processes you put in place.

How we help you build
more procurement talent 

Although we're not a training organisation, working alongside PROACTIS will help your team to deepen its knowledge and broaden its expertise, developing the talent that exists already throughout your organisation. 

With our solutions, you can:
Make it easy for new members of your Procurement team to learn and consistently follow ‘best practice’ procedures  by guiding them through standardised processes.
Free up time for outside or self-education on specific skills (such as negotiation) or spend categories (such as contingent labour) by significantly reducing the time your people need to spend on routine administrative tasks.
Leverage category talent from outside Procurement by enabling structured, standardised, workflow-driven processes that direct purchase requests to the right expert, use their time efficiently, and ensure proper procedures.
Meanwhile, our services reduce the need to maintain staff with specialised skills or knowledge you only require on an occasional basis.
