PROCUREMENT SOFTWARE FOR CONSTRUCTION
Use one system for all purchases, deliveries & invoices
Eliminate ordering materials based on gut feel & paying suppliers on trust
Easily analyse budgets, spend, accruals & rebates, using real-time reports
Does this sound familiar?
Orders are often stored in carbon copy pads, spreadsheets and emails. It's difficult to see what orders have been placed and for which zone.
We use accounting software to generate cost versus budget reports but they are a month behind.
We sometimes over-order as a fail safe, just so we don't run out of materials.
Supplier invoices are sometimes paid on blind trust, so we don't know if we're overpaying.
Without real-time data, it's hard to plan cash flow and this puts us at risk.
