SEATTLE, Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- eRequester, a leading e-procurement and spend management software system, announced today it is publishing a guide to help companies determine the maturity level of their procurement programs. The e-book, Procurement Process Maturity: An Actionable Guide to Advancing Your Purchasing and Procurement Departments, is available for free download at https://www.erequester.com/procurement-process-maturity-guide.
One of the major areas that organizations looking for cost savings forget to consider is the procurement department, which is in charge of sourcing products and services cost-effectively. Often, this omission is simply because procurement teams have done things a certain way for many years and aren't aware of just how much money they stand to save—as well as how much faster and more agilely they can operate—by streamlining their approach to purchasing.
Companies still using an old-fashioned approach to procurement can face a number of serious problems, including fraud, rogue spending, and inventory issues. eRequester's new e-book explores the different levels of procurement maturity and how companies can use this information to improve their processes. Features of the guide include:
- Descriptions of five procurement maturity levels
- Tips for determining a company's procurement maturity
- The ROI that can be realized from a mature procurement program
"The benefits of advancing your company's procurement program speak for themselves," says Benjamin Litjen, eRequester's CEO. "With the right policies, people, and e-procurement tools in place, your company can move that much closer to developing a fully mature purchasing program. Companies that arrive there are much nimbler and better positioned to deliver even more value to their customers. Our new e-book offers actionable advice to businesses looking to improve their procurement efforts."
