We understand
your challenges

  • Paper-based catalogs are inefficient and lead to out-of-date, incorrect information.
  • Online or telephone purchases lead to maverick, off-contract buying.
  • No centralized approach to managing supplier content leads to duplicate suppliers and multiple item entries.
  • It can be difficult to keep up with suppliers continuously adding and changing their offerings.
  • Inadequate item information means uninformed purchases.

the solution

With Proactis, you obtain an easily managed framework for providing employees with access to authorized supplier catalogs, websites and marketplaces – ensuring that the easiest way to find and buy something, is in fact, the right way.

Manage supplier and in-house catalogs, provide access to authorized supplier websites, utilize external marketplaces and even provide visibility to existing inventory. All this information is then available throughout the organization. 

What you can do
Put your supplier catalogs in one place – and let them keep them up to date

The Central Electronic Catalog stores rich supplier content. The items offered to your buyers all come through from a central repository of authorized goods and services from approved suppliers. Key information is displayed with every item, whilst your P2P system picks up the financial coding you need for account posting and spend analysis. Self-service capabilities for suppliers make it easy to keep catalogs up to date. 

Get the best of the web - from within your system

Website punch-out connections enable your employees to access external eCommerce websites. Your users simply browse the website and select items. Their shopping cart is then pulled into your P2P system. It's run through the normal authorization process, and then the order is placed with the website or via a PO sent to the supplier.

Widen your choice, whilst keeping it simple

Proactis Marketplace offers a single entry point to numerous suppliers and products – via a growing eCommerce website managed by us. It provides you with a single point of access to many shared catalogs, contracts and punch-out connections from industry-focussed suppliers and buying consortiums.

Avoid unnecessary purchases - by watching your inventory 

The optional Proactis Stores Management solution provides a streamlined multi-location inventory system that lets you see what's already available within your organization, meaning you could get goods faster and avoid spending unnecessarily.
