E-Procurement System

About the System

E-Procurement is a major component of e-transactions between organizations and suppliers. It improves the relationship between the buyer and the supplier and enhances the internal process of both, in addition to providing significant savings in operational costs, thereby leading to maximizing their value.

Benefits of the e-Procurement System

  • When switching to e-procurement and using E-Systems to manage purchases with a market for companies, it will be easy to find hundreds of vendors, compare them and choose the best of them to manage the order. All of that is online.

  • Reduce average cycle time of purchasing process from 30 to 20 days for tendering cycle time (PR - RFQ – PO) (more than AED20K and less than AED200K).

  • Through advanced analytics, data is collected, refined and classified to increase the vision of spending and allow for better spending analysis.

  • Reduce average cycle time of purchasing process from 45 to 35 days for tendering cycle time (PR- RFP – Contract) (more that AED200K and above).
