"Traditional procurement processes have historically involved paper based requisition and purchase order forms and a lot of back and forth between an organisation's buyers, the original requester and their vendors. It leads to duplication of effort as well as less control and oversight over the procurement process and the costs involved. Using eRequester as the eprocurement system provides a predictable process and improved ordering communication, both in-house and with outside vendors, an a prove method of managing costs via a built-in approval process."
