How Basware can help

 Guided Purchasing

Potential savings do not translate into actual savings unless employees purchase goods and services from preferred vendors. Guided purchasing increases compliance with supplier and pricing policies, simplifying the procurement process for end users and ensuring time and effort spend on negotiating favorable contracts is productive.

 Simplified Shopping

A consumer-style shopping experience makes it easy for users to purchase the goods and services they need – increasing compliance and relieving procurement from “policing” the organization. Advanced catalog management tools and automated stock integration ensure that catalogs are up to date with the latest products and prices, simplifying the purchasing process for users.

 Advanced Approvals

The solution automatically issues POs and places orders as each item on a requisition is approved without waiting for the other line items on the same order that may require extra approvals, accelerating the procurement process. Further, procurement professionals can review and approve purchase requests when they need to, wherever they might be. Users can access the application even on the go, thanks to the seamless user experience across all devices, including mobile devices. 

 Pricing Compliance

Advanced search capabilities allow users to what they need while complying with preferred suppliers and negotiated pricing contracts. At the same time, budget check matrices inform approvers of the impact of purchases on budgets. This proactive approach gives managers the visibility to see how purchase requests impact budgets at the time of requisitioning versus after the money has been spent and budgets used up.

 Out-Of-The-Box Analytics

Robust analytics capabilities help consolidate spend, right-size the supply base, and negotiate favorable contracts with suppliers. Graphical dashboards allow you to track spend by supplier, category, and department. View managed versus unmanaged spend, track process efficiency and ongoing improvement, and drill into the transactional details behind the trends. 

 Operational Sourcing

Basware Purchase supports operational sourcing through a number of different mechanisms making it easy for procurement professionals and end users to purchase the goods and services that they need. The capabilities available include Price on Request,

Electronic procurement (also referred to as eProcurement or e-procurement) is the process of buying and selling goods and services over the internet. Electronic procurement creates digital communication lines between buying organisations and their suppliers and supports the process of requisitioning, ordering, and exchange of purchase documents in the business-to-business (B2B) world.
