How Proactis helped
The Council originally implemented Proactis Purchase-to-Pay to consolidate the numerous ordering procedures and formats to capture spend across the organization. All orders are sent to suppliers electronically and an increasing number of invoices are being received electronically.
Having used Proactis for many years, it elected to utilise additional functionality available, including contract and supplier management, and adopted the collaborative procurement portal powered by the Proactis sourcing solution. This has extended visibility of contract opportunities for suppliers, while extending governance, compliance and auditability for the Council.
95% of the Council’s procurement processes are managed via Proactis Sourcing, providing extensive transparency, with built-in procedures and controls which are aligned to pre-determined authorisation criteria. The Council worked with Proactis to create streamlined, end-to-end procurement processes, including spend management and control, sourcing, contract management and supplier relationship management.
