Automated procurement processes

Let STAR show the way for effective procurement processes

Using the right technology to streamline direct and indirect procurement processes can generate opportunities you never knew you had.

Automated procurement processes

In recent years, organisations have become more interested in how they can optimise their direct and indirect procurement processes. The need to reduce costs drives this trend – and various Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems have demonstrated the benefits of cost-effective procurement.

However, introducing new technology is never straightforward. It involves budget and time constraints, and the people who have to use it may be reluctant to change their ways of working. Using the STAR principle, we can help you solve these challenges. This principle combines Simplicity and Technology with Alignment between stakeholders and Responsibility guidelines  – to deliver streamlined procurement processes.

  • Deriving business value from cost allocation and portfolio management
