The main issue was automating the requisition process.

Purchasing was not centralized and there was much maverick buying.

This kind of spend was keeping buying power static instead of growing.


Automation and centralization have cut maverick spend and provided more control.

UX is easy and flexible.

Buying power is no longer static, but growing.

"I don’t need to make sure that the right approvals are approving the right requisition. That’s all done in the system for me and I'm confident in the system."
