How Proactis helped
The Proactis solution included a comprehensive dashboard to manage all catalog activity, to facilitate buyer-supplier collaboration, and to provide visibility into catalog update status. This included using Business Support Centers (BSC) across the world as “hubs” and hosted catalogs to deploy and maintain catalogs, as well as prioritize opportunities and ensure accountability. Within a year, they expanded their catalog program by 300% and spend through the solution grew to $86M.
Using Proactis, Halliburton is now able to manage the ongoing global needs of suppliers and users: managing complete supplier on-boarding and user-friendly eCatalog search to provide optimal procurement efficiency, with visibility and accountability. The company’s $20B in spend and 126,000 eCatalog PO’s with external suppliers called for payments to be made to approximately 30,000 suppliers. The ability to view catalog approval workflow, validity periods of catalog and contracts, and number of products per catalog or supplier, has made purchasing more efficient and ensured compliance.
