In the battle against urban blight, this field services company turned to ProcurePort to streamline its supplier acquisition and service delivery capabilities.
Maintaining the value and original prestige of a neighborhood in transition requires timely, reliable and cost-effective access to a diverse network of suppliers on a local as well as national basis.
Building, maintaining and growing a strong and reliable supply network to satisfy client service needs requires an ability to not only engage existing contractors but continuously attract new ones as well.
Our client needed a procurement platform with a simple, straight forward and polished interface that was functionally advanced yet accessible to both large national as well as less-sophisticated small, local providers.
Our client recognized there were several areas that needed improvement in their systems. ProcurePort helped them develop a list of key challenges to focus on during development.
Identifying potential suppliers in “fly over” states and regions in which there is limited coverage.
Finding a solution with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that would enhance the supplier experience helping to attract and retain high-quality suppliers.
Implementing a procurement platform that would streamline the supplier recruitment and on-boarding process to meet on-demand, sometimes short delivery timelines.
Identifying and capturing unrealized savings from the existing procurement process.
ProcurePort decided to implement two modules that not only quickly integrated with the client’s processes, but was easy to use by team members and users.
Our client was thrilled to find that the 6-weeks required to collect bids, evaluate and award suppliers had been reduced to 2 days.
By simply eliminating manual tasks, the process was made more secure and intuitive, however the addition of enterprise class security eliminated many IT department concerns.
ProcurePort solution allowed for publishing service requirements to over 1000 suppliers instantaneously.
Service providers were able to bid on a project via a simple link, eliminating any technology onboarding requirements or training.
Use of Reverse Auctions allowed the supplier to get instant feedback on their price and provided the ability to be more competitive.
By turning to ProcurePort, the company implemented a cost-effective solution that did not tax existing IT resources while streamlining the supplier acquisition process to deliver notable savings on an almost immediate basis.
The ProcurePort system was implemented and operational almost immediately. A positive user “experience” maximized supplier adoption and solution utilization. There was a notable reduction in supplier acquisition and onboarding and overall process related savings. The client was able to cut spending on services as well as reduce the purchasing cycle times to hours instead of days.
