Atea is a leading supplier of IT infrastructure in Nordic and Baltic regions, and after years of helping their clients optimize their processes, they decided it was time to focus on their own processes within purchasing, invoice and expense handling.
When the Atea team began its journey to finding the perfect software for the business, they had two main prerequisites: it had to integrate with their existing ERP and it had to be easy-to-use. The winning solution was Basware which offered both.
Ultimately, Atea wanted to move purchase orders away from central administration to give employees more autonomy over the process. This strategy would go on half some of the business’ employees’ workloads, freeing them up to focus on other tasks.
“With our purchasing system from Basware, the employee creates a purchase requisition and gets it approved by their department head...Our new process creates savings by freeing up a lot of time.” - Rune Pind Nielsen, Accounts Payable Manager.
Nielsen has received a positive response from his team. Users praise the new system for being “intuitive”, “transparent” and above all, “easy-to-use”. Plans are currently in the pipeline to adopt Contract Life Cycle Management to provide further transparency.
