After implementing an e-procurement software, pushing paper POs through the system is replaced by a more efficient electronic approval and tracking process. No longer is the question asked;

"Have you seen my Purchase Order for XX” but…

“I know you have my order, can you please approve it so I can order the XX?”

The process and ability to track purchase requisitions and orders becomes as easy as finding an e-mail. No longer are your end users wasting precious time and productivity trying to tack down their orders. It becomes so streamlined and structured, the organization can focus on contract compliance and budget management to save money more effectively.
