Purchase automation provides the ability to put a purchasing policy in place and ensure that it is always adhered to with minimal effort. It delivers the platform that enables management to systematically work through all aspects of purchasing and achieve best value all of the time.
It is important to recognise these savings are also sustainable on an on-going basis. Whilst every organisation looks to achieve “best value”, all too often each saving exercise will diminish in value over time as the old “bad habits” creep back into the purchasing process. This limits the savings achieved as too much resource is required to “keep spinning the existing plates”, inhibiting the organisation from expanding the disciplines and maximising the savings achieved.
