In Their Own Words: Procurence

INTRODUCTION

Procurence’s Meercat platform seamlessly connects Procurement, Quality Management and Compliance/ESG departments in one software platform. Think of it as a supplier portal, collaboration tool and a Source-to-Contract platform on steroids.

You can manage your suppliers, monitor their risks and audit them, create tenders and prepare for negotiations, send purchase orders, manage contracts, manage new product introductions (PPAP/APQP), create compliance reports on material level and even calculate carbon footprint of your supply chain.

OUR USP

  • We allow you to create TRANSPARENCY of your suppliers, materials and processes in one platform.
  • We allow you to COLLABORATE both with your suppliers and between the internal departments (especially Quality and R&D).
  • We usually sit on top of ERP systems, often on top of Ariba or other providers, simply because were more USER FRIENDLY and COST EFFECTIVE.
  • We can take data from EXTERNAL SOURCES (riskmethods/sphera, ecovadis, IntegrityNext, D&B, etc.) and ENRICH the external information with your IN-HOUSE DATA (supplier classifications, risk, etc.)
  • We offer a unique combination of functionalities that span PROCUREMENT, QUALITY management, COMPLIANCE and SUSTAINABILITY into one platform.
  • Simple licensing model – ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT – NO LIMITS of users, suppliers, etc. – all within one low, annual licence fee.

WHICH PROBLEM IS PROCURENCE SOLVING?

We understand the key procurement challenges of COST/VALUE, RISK, COMPLIANCE and ESG and provide you with a whole suite of tools to deal with them in ONE SOFTWARE PLATFORM that creates transparency of your suppliers and materials and allows you to collaborate across organisation.
The solution is modular — you can start with a particular problem: e.g. need to on-board suppliers, lack of a tendering tool, need to calculate the carbon footprint and first focus on one module. Once you’re ready to tackle a new issue, we simply turn on a new function and it’s automatically integrated with a similar look and feel — the roll-our is quick and there is no need for extensive training.
