Guide the Purchasing of Technical Items with Centralized Catalog Management

When purchasing highly technical goods and services, it is in an organization’s best interest to put guidelines or controls in place. Current SCM’s highly flexible Catalog Management toolset provides several options to help guide or control your purchasing.

  • An example to help guide purchasing would be to create a structured catalog complete with well-defined descriptions, precise measurements & attributes, and detailed metadata to provide Buyers with the information they need to make the right purchase.
  • An example to help control purchasing would be to create a business rule to limit purchasing only to Catalog Items that have been approved for use.

Guide the Purchasing of Technical Items with Vendor Document Requirements

When purchasing heavily regulated goods and services, ensuring you also receive proper documentation is just as important as ensuring you receive the actual materials.

  • Current SCM allows you to flag specific Catalog Items as requiring documentation and to create correlating vendor document requirements, including the document type, format, authentication requirements, and deadlines.
  • The system tracks vendor document submission deadlines and can provide status updates on a per order basis or it can show all outstanding vendor document submissions within a Project.
