If you are a Procurement Service Provider, as opposed to a direct end user organisation, you can centrally manage your customers and their users rights and privileges on the system.
Cost Centres and ordering codes also ensure that every customer order is correctly attributed with the precise requirements of that account (e.g. budget codes, mandatory requisitions nos., etc.) all of which are logged and ready for use in reporting and/or data-exports directly to the customer.
You can also manage ‘internal’ as well as ‘external’ customers and each account can have its own branded stationery for every system-generated document from the supplier RFQ to the sales invoice.
