Purchase Management

Purchasing processes

These processes (such as purchasing, accounts payable and travel and entertainment) are typically highly manual, with few controls and no end-to-end process view. Making payments efficiently, cost-effectively and surely are pivotal to every well-managed finance function. For this purpose we need to control the corporate spending. Manual purchasing processes are slow, time consuming and often lead to supplier account problems, over budget spending and an ever growing number of suppliers.
