Shopping Platform for your ERP Order
ERP and procurement solutions are a critical part of an organization’s operational efficiency. However, most do not support web-based shopping platforms allowing users to easily search and select products. Users may balk at adopting Eprocurement tools when the tools are difficult to use, not integrated across the organization, or don’t present enough catalog content.
A burdensome user experience combined with relatively limited supplier offerings will fail to change user behavior. Employees simply continue to buy the same materials from the same suppliers – even if they’re using the new procurement system. So procurement staff are left to spend time in the tactical execution and can’t focus on strategic procurement issues. Without the ability to change the situation, potential savings from eprocurement are not realized.
