Online procurement definition
What is online procurement?
Online procurement systems are designed to connect the purchasing agents of existing customers to preferred vendors as a part of an electronic purchase procedure. A business wishing to use this system should design their Intranet or Internet application to guide them through the identification, purchase and fulfillment process.
Online procurement systems streamline the process of purchasing and saves money by ensuring best-use purchasing practices. Online procurement can encompass a limited scope as well as the full corporate supply chain.
Vendors that want to grow their relationships with larger and more sophisticated customers should take the technological and organizational steps to be identified as a vendor that offers seamless connection to online procurement systems, as well as be able to deliver the results of this channel of sales activity.
