Procurement is increasingly being expected to become more influential in the overall business strategy – specifically in the areas of mitigating risk, creating a competitive advantage and driving growth.
Supply Chain Optimization
ERP enables agile and flexible production systems and supply chains
Increase responsiveness, lead times and overall productivity with a full integrated ERP
To be truly competitive in today’s business world it is about having the most efficient and effective supply chain possible. Technology designed for manufacturers, such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, provides organizations with improved visibility of the reliable local suppliers and their supply chains. The use of automated business systems supports efficient management of procurement and sourcing policy changes, improved distribution, and better decision-making based on relevant, and accurate real-time data.
By accessing and relaying real-time information, insights, and trends through ERP, businesses can act instantly and decisively – helping increase responsiveness, lead times, and overall productivity. This improved operation agility enables businesses to pivot more quickly and smoothly during disruptions. In times of disruption, the power and benefits of a fully integrated ERP system cannot be under-estimated.

Request for Quote
Request for Quote (RFQ) provides the ability to extend a formal invitation to suppliers to tender on the supply of goods or services. As a vital part of Procurement, this capability provides transparency of the tender process, improving governance and streamlines the process by automating the creation of the RFQ from a Requisition, allowing servicing of the RFQ directly by suppliers online. Request for Quote also assists buyers in making informed procurement decisions quickly and easily as they can compare offerings from different suppliers. The reduction of manual processes decreases the manual workload of key staff, freeing them up to perform more relevant tasks.
SYSPRO Lot Traceability enables you to maximize quality control by tracking products, materials and processes, as well as by facilitating effective recalls.
