Deployed on desktop or mobile devices, the custom solution uses an intuitive SAP UI5 interface and guided workflows to simplify procurement, approvals and goods receipt processes.

  • Control workflows and custom approvals to minimise the potential for fraud
  • Increase compliance with procurement procedures
  • Replace SAP SRM for overhead procurement at a significantly lower TCO
  • Ability to punch out to online catalogues
  • Enhance the user experience (UX) which improves data quality
  • Operate on desktop, mobile and tablet devices
  • Reduce training cost and support effort
  • Decrease end-user training time
