CINCINNATI, July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Aquiire, Inc., the leader in real-time eProcurement and supplier relationship management solutions and recent winner of the 2017 Institute of Finance and Management (IOFM) Game Changer Award, has released a new white paper entitled The Top Ten Ways Real-Time eProcurement Matters. The paper explains why real-time data in procurement is essential for meeting procurement software users' needs in the "now economy" and for driving adoption, compliance and untapped savings.
"We live in a fast-paced, consumer-driven world that increasingly demands immediate information and results, and we are dedicated to helping procurement leaders rethink and improve their traditional indirect eProcurement business models," said Kevin Smith, Aquiire VP of Marketing and Alliances. "Advanced real-time functionality and competitive comparison shopping in B2B e-commerce are essential to drive user satisfaction and compliance, as well as fully deliver the hidden savings opportunities on indirect spend."
Smith said some of the top ways real-time data advances traditional eProcurement systems include:
- Single B2B marketplace where all preferred suppliers are searchable and shoppable
- True comparison and compliant shopping with lower-priced approved alternative suppliers
- Instant validation of negotiated contract pricing and spend visibility
- Vastly improves supplier relationship management and purchasing automation
According to Smith, the Aquiire analysis team continues to collect valuable customer data revealing impressive savings opportunities when they employ a competitive product and pricing strategy in the Aquiire real-time marketplace environment. Smith said that their customers are seeing an additional 8% to 9% savings on indirect spend using Aquiire's exclusive alternative supplier pricing functionality—which is impactful as their customers typically spend hundreds of millions of dollars per year.
