ERP systems

ERP systems are management information systems that integrate and automate many of the business practices associated with the operations of a company or organization. ERP systems typically handle the manufacturing, logistics, distribution, inventory, shipping, invoicing, and accounting for a company or organization. ERPs aid in the control of many business activities, like sales, delivery, billing, production, procurement, inventory management, and human resources management.

E-procurement strategy – costs, benefits:

Particular benefits of e-procurement in the public sector are thought to include greater transparency in procurement through electronic publishing of tender notices and contract awards. This in turn is likely to enhance accountability and reduce the instances of corruption.

E-procurement software

Electronic procurement, also known as e-procurement, is the business-to-business requisitioning, ordering and purchasing of goods and services over the software.

E-procurement is facilitated by e-procurement software. Although available functions and features vary from vendor to vendor, e-procurement software typically computerizes numerous procurement-related activities - thereby eliminating the need for manual and/or paper-based processes.

An enterprise chief procurement officer (CPO) or procurement department usually sets the policies governing procurement of materials within an organization, with the goal of acquiring a product or service of the greatest value at the best possible price at the time it is needed.

To meet this goal, procurement leaders negotiate contracts, establish relationships with suppliers and set guidelines or limits on what spending can take place for which items. E-procurement software allows procurement leaders to automate adherence to these policies, contracts and vendor relationships within the system.
