SSE spent millions procuring goods and services from thousands of suppliers with no single way of buying. They had maverick buying, with no bulk purchasing benefits, and very little visibility on the status of a purchasing document. The majority of users did not understand the buying channels and procurement policies and this put strain on other areas of the business.
Level developed a knowledge automation solution called "Ask Procure to Pay” that allows employees to quickly identify the correct procurement channel for goods and services, and easily track the details and status of their documents from demand through to delivery. It gives users easily accessible FAQs that direct them to more detailed guides. Other capabilities include:
The solution was integrated in the organizations in-office procurement systems, and it was also supplied in mobile format so that employees could use it in the field.
The ‘Ask Procure to Pay’ solution unburdened buyers and procurement experts elsewhere in the business, so they could spend more time concentrating on value-added work.
The solution carefully guides users through the procurement process, ensuring buying is done in the correct channels and compliant with all company policies. It eliminates confusion surrounding procurement processes, and the system is more accessible to non-experts. The mobile-friendly product also simplifies procuring goods and services for employees without a fixed work base, improving process speed and eliminating room for error.
