Health Care Awarding Body Case Study
The client is the UK’s only specialist awarding organisation for the children, adult and health care sectors, with a portfolio of qualifications ranging from Entry to Level 5. Last year, over 150,000 learners registered with the organisation from over 1000 UK based Centres and overseas.
The company produce and distribute a wide range of literature, promotional products, stationery, books and similar products to support their training courses. Typically these products are required on an ad hoc, unpredictable basis and in small quantities. Dependent on the product type, orders need to be routed to a range of pre-qualified suppliers, including production and fulfilment providers. They needed an easy way to capture and process orders from their national network of trainers and assessors.
To address frequently ordered, low average transaction value ordering, they integrated their existing company wide ERP system into Claritum’s cloud based spend management platform in partnership with a world leading provider of outsourced procurement services.
Approximately 1,500 Trainers and Assessors around the UK access the ERP on a regular basis to find and order the required products from a range of 250 line items. Daily order updates are automatically sent to Claritum via FTP including requisitioner, order and delivery details. Dependent on the order profile, Claritum seamlessly routes the transaction to pre-approved suppliers for fulfilment or production.
