Challenges

 

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.

Results

"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."
