Science Warehouse, a leading provider of procurement and spend management solutions and one of the fastest growing companies in the UK e-business sector, has launched a radical new design of its purchasing software to deliver the next wave of purchase and spend analysis functionality for customers.
New research by Science Warehouse and eWorld reveals that with more than half of businesses planning to invest in procurement capability this year, value for money and ease of use are the leading factor in the selection of procurement systems*. In reaction to this Science Warehouse have invested in the procurement solution it offers with familiar consumer style functionality to streamline the sourcing and purchasing process in the work place.
Key elements of the interface include:
Jon Moody, Science Warehouse Product & Technology Director, said: “As our survey highlighted, business’s number one procurement priority is to save money but one of the biggest barriers to delivering this is systems that users find hard to use. Our new solution is built around the customer and helps embed best practice purchasing by making it the easiest route for them to take. Our solution makes the whole ecosystem of consultants that exist around business software redundant – they’re no longer needed where a solution is fast and easy to implement and drives its own usage.”
“The growth in online retailing shows that convenience and value are increasingly part of everyone’s lives. The speed and ease of use of consumer sites was crying out to be replicated in the business arena. Business software should be just as intuitive, easy to use and pleasing on the eye as any of these consumer offerings. The new 2012 interface aids the purchasing process and will drive the next wave of effective savings.”
