Bath, UK (June 20, 2018) – Claritum, a provider of cloud based spend management solutions, today announced that AHDB awarded a project to Claritum to supply a cloud based quotation automation solution.
Established in 2008 the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) purpose is to inspire farmers, growers and industry to succeed in a rapidly changing world.
The project with Claritum is focused on automating quotation requests from internal users; obtaining quotes from the supplier base; and the handling of the resulting orders.
AHDB expect significant gains in efficiency for all parties involved: AHDB users, procurement service desk and suppliers. With fewer errors being made. The new automated process will transform their procurement process for print related materials, brochures and leaflets. Removing manual email process steps and automating interactions.
They will be able to provide feedback to their suppliers, based on the audit trail of activity associated with each supplier and the accumulated data over time. Plus the new process will address issues of compliancy and provide clear reporting that includes the savings achieved.
Service Desk Control
AHDB want their procurement service desk to control access to all the suppliers and ensure that the latest pricing is obtained via quotations. Users request products and services via the Claritum platform. The Service desk then, using Claritum, requests quotations and manages the resulting ordering process.
