Each implementation was very successful, and the company started seeing significant business results after only nine months. The exact purchasing process was made visible, including details of who was making the purchases, what they were buying, when and from whom, and how much they were spending – something that had never previously been possible.
Supplier invoicing errors were greatly reduced, as was total spend. Staff are now empowered to make more strategic, higher value purchases. As a result, with the help of Proactis, the organisation has reduced overall spend by 20%, lowered the cost of goods by 10% - 20%, reduced poor-performing suppliers and effectively implemented procurement best practices.
