The savings you generate need to manifest themselves in actual purchasing for your e-sourcing efforts to create real value. The best way to do that is through integration between systems. You need your negotiated agreements to make it into your P2P system. Scanmarket supports the most common integration protocols using open APIs and has integration capabilities for all major ERP and procure-to-pay platforms.
Driving Business Value
Scanmarket’s source-to-contract platform comes with built-in integrations between Spend Analytics, Supply Base Management, eAuctions, eRFx, Contract Management and Project Management. It is fast and easy to apply changes across the platform. The objective for any integration is to make things more efficient and save you some time. Make sure your efforts are supporting your team’s end goal by driving value for the business.
Advice on Integrations
- Take advantage of pre-built integration interfaces and tools.
- Focus first on adoption, then integration.
- Understand your options, constraints and costs for integration prior to making a selection.
- Keep the integration efforts targeted to those areas that are “need-to-have” rather than “nice-to-have."
