The goal of any organization is to run its operations as efficiently and strategically as possible, especially where it affects cash flow, financial stability, and the bottom line. However, without the proper tools in place to manage back-office processes, or the ability to optimize processes based on important financial data, organizations can’t always manage their current state with their competitive advantage in mind.
One example of this is manual procurement. Without electronic procurement (eProcurement) software to automate processes, organizations can’t help but focus on the tactical problems that are born from inefficiency and a lack of control. On the other hand, automation enables organization to shift their focus to more strategic aspects of procurement. With automation, companies are also able to leverage advanced reporting and analytics to identify new areas of spend management, areas that were not visible or accessible under manual processes.
