Altus Procurement offers eCommerce solution

The Shire of Coorow has been managing their procure-to-pay workflow using Altus Procurement Management since June 2018.

Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Leanne Parola, said that moving to Altus Procurement was a big step for the Shire of Coorow but staff have embraced the change.

“Altus Procurement ensures that staff meet purchasing policy requirements, such as having enough quotes for the level of expenditure and keeping information about the quotes on file,”

“Using the software, it’s very quick and easy for staff to have purchase orders approved. For example, I can approve purchase orders anywhere, anytime, as long as I check my emails on my phone.”

One of the greatest areas of financial efficiency gains for organisations is the streamlining of manual or paper-based processes across the procurement supply chain workflow. Altus Procurement Management orchestrates this process; removing redundant processes while providing transparent visibility and flexible governance controls.

“Before moving to Altus Procurement Management, our leading hands and mechanics were using hard copy purchase order books because it took too long to access our systems and make purchases when they were away from the depot.  There would be significant delays before a copy of purchase orders were provided to the Creditor’s clerk (if at all) and they usually didn’t have much information on them. A lot of time was wasted chasing up purchase orders or asking what purchases were for. By using the Altus platform, the purchase order shows in SynergySoft straight away and is coded to the correct job,” said Leanne.

IT Vision Product Owner, Mark Burbridge, explained that clients can save time and money, reduce errors and comply with their audit requirements using Altus Procurement Management.

“It’s a fully electronic eCommerce solution that streamlines organisational processes and significantly enables quality improvement,” Mark explained.

“Using the Altus Procurement Management platform, clients can monitor supplier certifications and qualifications and rate the performance of individual suppliers, which ultimately results in quality improvement.”
