Are you manually processing standard, regularly purchased, items? Or, trying to collate demand across an organisation through spread sheets and emails? Perhaps, your organisation is purchasing directly from suppliers, administrators calling or emailing to source products and services?
Claritum’s platform enables you to create User Portals where catalogues can be created for regularly purchase items. Claritum even supports requests for variations to catalogue items.
Claritum’s platform helps you to organise the products and services relevant to the users and the organisations specific sourcing requirements. Allowing you to configure the catalogues according to user or functional group specific requirements.
In addition you can organise by sourcing event types, so that users can take part in a specific sourcing event: maybe buying paper for photocopiers.
The portals, and catalogues within them, can be branded specific to an organisation and/or office. They can be organised by user view, so that users can see products and services relevant to their function. Specifications and images can be included, providing simple click to buy functionality.
Local Languages and Currencies supported
Local languages and currencies can be enabled on the portals to aid user adoption and ensure that it is clear what is being purchased and at what price. Note: this extends to suppliers so they can see and quote in local languages and currencies.
For each catalogue item, the platform assists the development of the specification detail to ensure consistency on pricing, product or service quality, operational functionality and ensures they are fit for purpose.
Images, descriptions and specifications are all available to the user. Making the experience very similar to a typical e-commerce platform. This familiarity ensures adoption of the solution throughout the organisation.
When developing specifications in the platform you can distinguish between product requirements and product preferences or types. Building in tolerances, if required, for suppliers to adhere to.
