EProcurement systems have been around for nearly two decades. However, most eProcurement initiatives never deliver on their promise or fail for one of three reasons:
- The software priced out all but the largest companies.
- The software was too hard to implement.
- The software was too difficult to use, so adoption in the user community never reached the critical mass that the procurement and finance organizations needed to increase spend under management to desired levels.
CCP Global recognizes these challenges, and has teamed with some innovative Partners to collectively redefine eProcurement solutions and to remove the risk of eProcurement initiatives. As a key sub-component of our Spend Management solution for our clients, we have embraced a fully-functional eProcurement (procure-to-pay) platform that is delivered in the cloud under a SaaS model, enabling a significantly reduced “total cost of ownership” and other advantages, including rapid pace of innovation.
The eProcurement solution combines the best eProcurement and expense management technologies into a single platform and solution that is easy to use, fast to configure and deploy, and very cost-effective. The platform features a single user interface, a single workflow model for approving purchases and reimbursable expenses, instant visibility to organizational spending as it occurs, a consistent chart of accounts, and one set of budget entries against which to credit purchases and expenses.
The Dynamic Discount Management (DDM) solution is designed to for quick and efficient enrollment of your suppliers so that the buying organization can sooner realize the rewards of on-demand management of buyer-supplier relationships.
The key objectives are threefold:
(1) To eliminate as much manual effort as possible to ensure that the enrollment process will not be disruptive to your AP department;
(2) To facilitate the enrollment of ALL your vendors. Self services benefit every one of your vendors, and, therefore, should not be limited to only a percentage of suppliers. Although we highly recommend you enable all vendors, the DDM enrollment process supports phases, including a suggested initial pilot phase.
(3) To ensure security – the Enrollment process is designed to be secure and provide the buyer with added levels of security, uniquely identifying the vendor as your supplier.
