Because we purchase our required supplies abroad, and because logistics of procuring these products can be a complex and lengthy process, the drawing up of the order for the supplier took the procurement specialist an inordinate amount of time. Once we started using the system, procurement became much simpler. Completing a purchase order can now be done in just a few clicks.
We did not have to undergo radical changes in order to greatly simplify our work. Because the system allows us also to check for the accuracy (or lack thereof) of our replenishment plans, we would recommend usingthe automated inventory management system to any company that is plagued with procurement inefficiencies.
