July 28, 2021

If you are looking for solutions to make your company more efficient, reduce expenses, and save time for your employees, an e-Procurement platform is the tool for you. Managing procurement procedures using a transparent and optimized software system like the PRO-Q platform by Venicecom is indeed the best way to make your internal processes leaner and automated. It ensures that you always have all the materials you need, supporting your company’s operations effectively.

The PRO-Q platform allows you to simplify the activities of your Procurement Office and aids in managing procurement processes optimally, enhancing the overall efficiency of your production process. However, its advantages are not limited to this: by using an eProcurement tool, you also have the opportunity to efficiently manage your warehouse. This prevents errors and delays in restocking, which could significantly impact production, leading to obvious consequences throughout the supply chain.

An e-Procurement platform for warehouse management offers several advantages

The use of an e-Procurement platform enables you to systematically and automatically manage all your procurement processes, and its integration with your warehouse management system ensures additional advantages in terms of efficiency, cost containment, and security:

  • he supplier-warehouse-production chain is managed optimally: an e-Procurement platform allows you to complete every purchasing process without unexpected issues. This way, you can manage your warehouse and production process optimally, negotiating the best prices and services with your suppliers. Moreover, you won’t run the risk of running out of essential materials, which would necessitate emergency restocking.
  • The restocking and reordering processes are simplified: an e-Procurement platform allows you to track the purchasing history at any given time. This streamlines and secures the restocking and reordering processes. The user has the opportunity to plan their future purchases through the eProcurement platform and place them within a dedicated, interactive, and dynamic calendar. This planning, considering standard company needs and past purchasing intervals, enables the system to automatically schedule subsequent restocking dates, aiding in optimal warehouse management. The dates set by the system can also be manually or automatically adjusted in case of changes in needs or orders. This way, the platform significantly contributes to warehouse management while remaining an incredibly flexible tool.
  • You can choose which procurement procedures and obligations to automate: an e-Procurement platform allows you to automate the purchase of certain goods by creating pre-set tenders for products that are regularly and periodically purchased by the company. Moreover, by integrating with the warehouse management system, the platform can automatically create tenders for the replenishment of products whose stocks are running low. This ensures that you never fall below a minimum threshold, preventing the company from being exposed to the risk of running out of essential goods for its operations. All these automated procedures save time for your employees and can be managed according to your preferences: you choose which steps of the purchasing process and which pre- and post-procedure tasks to handle automatically and which ones manually.
  • The procurement needs of all company departments are integrated into a single tool: an e-Procurement platform ultimately enhances the efficiency of your warehouse by serving as a central hub for various purchase requests coming from different sectors of your company. Utilizing a single tool to collect orders and complete procurement procedures enables easier and faster management of material restocking, eliminating the need for fragmented systems such as emails or manually filled request forms. Moreover, using the platform reduces errors and allows you to have at your fingertips, with just one click, various spending summaries categorized by merchandise type. On one hand, this helps you control costs and make precise, realistic spending forecasts. On the other hand, it assists in setting negotiation strategies with your suppliers based on certain and traceable data.
