ePRO establishes a documented purchasing process with mandated policies and internal controls to effectively streamline and automate the traditional procurement process, resulting in improved workflow, increased efficiency and guaranteed order accuracy. The procurement process is also standardized without adding infrastructure or overhead.
ePRO provides multiple methods for capturing electronic invoices from suppliers, including a scan and capture feature to convert paper invoices to electronic invoices. Integration with the supplier’s invoicing system gives buyers real-time purchasing and accounting visibility.
ePRO enables purchasing departments to better manage inventory costs by providing inventory and sales data in one view to help the buyer determine real-time purchase needs and ensure the right amount of inventory is always available.
ePRO uses preset ordering guides, complete with forecasting, that increase order accuracy, reduce cycle time, prevent product spoilage, and the need to carry inflated or insufficient inventory. Spending allowance configures to both dollar amount and quantity, eliminating inventory overages. Inventory system integration enables data to always be synced in real-time.
The ePRO Budget Tracking module allows companies to know, in real-time, what their spend is relative to budgets. Create budgets, allocate amounts based on GL accounts and departments, and then track spend on an ongoing basis knowing at all times where your company stands.
ePRO and MarketDojo have partnered to create a seamless eSourcing solution to complement the ePRO Contract Management module.
With ePRO and MarketDojo, you can establish a process whereby companies bid for you business over the internet. For an e-RFQ (Request for Quotation) companies quote for your goods or services. For an e-auction companies can bid against each other in real time.
In a reverse auction sellers compete for a contract to supply goods or services and the price decreases over time.
In a forward auction buyers compete to purchase assets and the price increases over time.
In both cases, e-auctions help to establish the true market price.
These activities can be supported by Pre-Qualification Questionnaires, Invitations to Tender, Requests for Proposals and Requests for Information. With e-Sourcing, you can also run weighted events where non-price related criteria are fed into an overall scoring of participant responses.
