(BME) in recognition of this achievement. The award-winning solution offers a Consistent and complete networking of procurement processes on a central platform with worldwide availability. The process and system solution not only brings concrete efficiency gains to purchasing, but also
can be easily transferred to other companies that want to standardize and digitalize their procurement processes.
The system manages award cases in the five-digit range worldwide and a spend in the double-digit millions. According to the customer, the process cost and bundling advantages result in a Return on investment of just under three years.
The implementation of an analysis tool ensures transparency of all process steps, from the demand to the supplier selection, the request for proposal to the award / placement of order.
