e-Procurement - Features


The fundamental principle of e-Procurement is to make it easier for users to transact the "requisition to payment" (R2P) process, also known as the "procure to pay" (P2P) process in a way which complies with procurement & finance processes and leveraging the use of approved / preferred suppliers, whilst doing so at a lower transactional cost.

Features of e-Procurement

  • Immediate availability to users of discounted on-line catalogues from approved / preferred suppliers and hence...
  • Light-touch / lower transaction cost electronic requisitioning, approval, ordering and receipting and...
  • R2P process governance principles and rules are configured as an integral part of the e-Procurement platform e.g.
    • requisition approval rules / workflow
    • Integration with the accounts payable system to facilitate a 3 way match with invoices
  • Expenditure is tracked to the correct cost centres because users' own cost-centres are attached by default.
  • Cost object / chart of accounts information can also be attached by default, when using catalogue purchasing.
  • Provides a platform for further automation of the accounts payables process e.g. "PO flipping" and automated rules based payment authorisation mechanisms.
