Many Middle East countries have been recently engaged in improving their public procurement systems, including by modernising their procurement policies and institutional frameworks, developing guidelines and building procurement professional capacity.
In procurement, according to Hackett Group study (2019) procurement-specific technologies are expected to be far more broadly adopted over the next two years, e.g. e-procurement, unsurprisingly, will be in use at 96% of organizations (either broadly or in specific processes).
Most procurement departments struggle with the same issue: the need to find new value from shrinking budgets and falling headcount, while still maximising economic and societal benefits. Strategic sourcing can be this new value generator. An effective eProcurement Software Solution enables cost cutting, and aides in transparency to your spending and approvals process, manages budgets and simplifies communication between all the main touch points from originator, buyer, approver, vendor, receiver and accounts payable.
All our solutions are cloud based tools that can be used to control the entire Source-to-Pay process. You receive many tangible benefits that you may not even have expected. Cloudia’s software enables companies to collaborate in a new and improved way with its suppliers. Your organization will become more efficient and effective through the procurement process. Looking for control over your spending? This is yet another advantage.
