Continuous Improvement with ClaritumHere are 6 ways Claritum can help you save your organisation time and money
Claritum's cloud suite offers a solution for all organisation sizes, with customer references of less than 10 people through to global organisations using Claritum. However, the system is optimised and offers flexibility to address anything up to larger medium sized organisations as a focus.
1. Claritum’s cloud suite cuts operational costs and improves efficiencies
Claritum eliminates the need for disparate systems across departments and geolocations, and instead centralises and integrates these functions into a single cloud deployed suite of software, with multiple languages and currencies supported if required.
The cloud suite manages procurement processes and ensures information exchange across an entire organisation and its external stakeholders. Essentially, this means more work can be done using less time and resources. Ultimately, that leads to lower operational costs and ensures your business remains profitable.
Whatever your organisation size, Claritum's cloud suite can help your team to focus on the management of key areas such as:
- purchase orders
- business assets and resources
- sourcing events
2. Improved communication and data exchange with better collaboration
Post adoption, organisations experience an easier exchange of business information that is facilitated by a simpler transactional flow of knowledge, insights and data between organisational groups. This means business transactions, throughout the organisation, are visible to key stakeholders at any time, which in turn means decision-makers can make better, more timely business decisions..
Claritum's cloud suite helps reduce errors and remove manual processes, Claritum helps data information exchanges with more accuracy. Plus, transactions are recorded within the system, removing the need to trace emails that reside within individual user accounts!
Automation also leads to improved employee satisfaction by reducing frustration and increasing productivity. Information exchange is made easier and organisational-wide communication is improved, with company-wide silos are often broken down, further bolstering morale and productivity outcomes.
3. Centralised business functions and reduced process times
Claritum's cloud suite is easy-to-use and unifies, standardises, and automates business processes into a single centralised resource. Providing everything from quoting, sales, customer service and invoicing, through to accounting, inventory, supply chain management and payment, and everything in between.
Claritum's cloud suite helps eliminate duplicate processes and saves time. Gone are the days where all automation and workflows must be the same for all processes, users and customers. Claritum automation and workflows can be configured and modified to support continuous improvement for individual stakeholders.
A well-designed set of automation and workflows will help centralise business functions and promote more timely and efficient daily operations. The cloud suite also helps ensure that every employee follows the same processes, ensuring consistency across your operations for recurring tasks.
With Claritum, standardised processes include the use of notifications and alerts to key team members. Plus, access to relevant, up to date, data and analytics that will help you make decisions and monitor processes and workflows. Enabling you to give thoughtful feedback to teams for improvements, whilst also keeping key stakeholders informed.
4. Inventory and Supply Chain Management
Regardless of your business type, you can benefit from the same supply chain efficiencies of implementing Claritum’s cloud suite. Getting a more comprehensive look into your supply chain and the capabilities of your suppliers. With a better understanding of the scope of your inventory, if applicable to your business operations.
Whether you need insight into ordering, stock replenishment, or reviewing supply needs, Claritum can help align your supply chain with your customers’ current and future needs.
Claritum's cloud suite can help you decrease shortages, proactively address supply chain gaps, and better budget for inventory volumes while decreasing unnecessary spending and purchases for items that may already be in stock within the organisation.
On spend analysis, Claritum helps you better analyse spending and purchases over time so you can more accurately determine your needs, including tracking, products and services purchased, waste analytics, damage assessments, and evaluations of items or services that are no longer essential to your current business needs.
5. Improved customer relationship management (CRM)
Not only does the cloud suite move multiple business processes into a single solution, but it can also align your customer relationship management (often referred to as CRM) requirements into the same system, giving you comprehensive insight into your customers’ needs no matter where they may be in the buyers’ journey.
The cloud suite helps organisations align all of their customer records into a single database. This unified system gives companies the ability to track all of their customer interactions, from a quote or RFx, to an order, invoicing, payment receipt, and goods receipt.
Claritum helps you align your customer interactions and company communications into one cloud suite of software allowing all stakeholders to immediately have insight to address customer needs. This creates a unique opportunity to improve your customer service.
6. Impact on IT costs
With disparate systems, IT teams must invest a lot of time and resources into maintenance costs, maintenance time, and direct or indirect labour costs involved with new software purchases, updating existing systems, follow-through on licensing agreements, and training.
Claritum's cloud suite, as a software as a service offering, removes the need to have different applications and databases for different departmental functions and associated upgrade and maintenance costs. The cloud suite helps decrease additional spending on software and hardware systems and eliminates the need for routine workflow disruptions when those systems have to be updated, patched, or replaced.
Where other dedicated and essential systems are in place, Claritum’s integration capability allows for seamless interactions between these systems. Making processes flow, even when other systems are included in the process steps, and ensuring that there are no manual steps or rekeying of information between systems.
