Companies struggle to manage purchases without centralized processes and decentralized decision- making. With Contraqer, you can:
Organizations enjoy the best of all worlds: efficiencies from standard templates, process and approval workflows, and decisions made by the people closest to the issues.
Keep inventory data fresh and accurate
It’s easy to blow through part reorder points. People get busy, they check inventory levels infrequently, and purchases go unordered. As a result, reorder points are set too high, expensive overnight shipping becomes routine, people keep personal parts stashes, or order twice by mistake. All this drives up parts expense. With Contraqer, you can:
Integrate with your CMMS/EAM to realize the benefits of closed-loop MRO procurement. Enjoy fewer parts outages, fewer emergency shipments, lower inventory levels, lower purchase prices, and lots of time saved.
Save time and reduce accounting errors
CFOs want purchase order (PO) and invoice data accuracy. Busy maintenance departments want to buy the parts and supplies they need quickly and easily so they can get back to their real jobs. Without a connection between closed-loop MRO procurement and ERP/accounting systems, un-accounted for POs and invoices tend to pile up. Manual entry errors just make it worse. With Contraqer, you can:
Integrate with your ERP/accounting system to realize the benefits of closed-loop MRO procurement. Save valuable time by eliminating tedious PO and invoice data entry, or by eliminating scanning and emailing POs and invoices to the accounting department.
