The Mpro Solution
Streamline purchasing to gain competitive advantage
Cutting the cost of the goods purchased from suppliers and the cost of how these goods are purchased are two areas where manufacturers can make a direct impact on their cost base and overall competitive position.
And because suppliers may also provide many "indirect" goods and services that manufacturers need to conduct business, strengthening and optimising relationships with suppliers is critical for competitive advantage.
The Mpro solution helps manufacturers reduce costs, improve relationships, and sustain competitive advantage by providing the most comprehensive solution for streamlining and automating the procurement of non-production spend. From initial sourcing of goods and suppliers through payment and strengthening relationships with trading partners, Mpro gives manufacturers the control and capability required to realise continuous cost reductions and process improvements.
Rapid implementation - manufacturers have a single infrastructure managed centrally.
Improved supplier management - through the ability to manage your suppliers, procuring the best quality and most cost-effective goods and services.
Improved demand management - ensuring purchase of only the goods and services that are actually needed.
Control of on-contract purchasing - leading to hard savings of up to 20% by purchasing only from contracted suppliers who meet their contracted levels of service and quality.
More accurate purchasing processes - with fewer purchasing errors and reduced time devoted to incomplete orders, returned goods and managing credit/debit notes.
Faster requisition processing - with a shorter requisition- to -settlement lifecycle, resulting in cost reductions.
