Non-catalogue

Science Warehouse uses the latest web technologies, great design and advanced data management to deliver e-procurement solutions that accelerate P2P success.

At Science Warehouse we believe passionately in the importance of high quality data. This is because we and our customers recognise that content accuracy is very important in procurement processes. But (whisper it quietly) not all purchase types can be distilled down to a catalogue entry from day one. This is why we offer non-catalogue ordering capability to cater for:

  • 'Off catalogue' purchases of bespoke items
  • Service items such as utilities, local authority services and professional services
  • The long tail of specialist and one-off purchases required by many organisations

Our non-catalogue or free format ordering capability is available as an extension to our eCatalogue module or can be enabled as part of eRequisitions. Non-catalogue ordering is used by organisations in a number of ways but it has the major benefit of ensuring all purchasing goes via a single platform providing continuity and control.

Another major benefit is that it can be used to drive contract compliance. When a user enters a free text item the system conducts a background catalogue search and directs the user towards the matching item in the eCatalogue. As with all our solutions the customer retains full procurement control and only those suppliers and categories you select are enabled on the system and all requests are routed through the same rigorous workflow process.
