Involve management and users in the requirements gathering, evaluation process, and implementation planning. This will get you buy-in
Mechanicsburg, PA (Vocus) November 2, 2010
Implementation of the Puridiom Enterprise Procurement solution results in dramatic savings for highly regarded customer, VSE Corporation. The top ranking government contractor recently purchased and implemented the procurement solution to automate a semi-manual purchasing process and has gained control and visibility of spend, automated approval workflows, and ensured corporate policy compliance. In addition, the ability to store, track, and view purchasing data has significantly eased the burden of federal audits.
In a newly published case study, VSE Corporation’s procurement challenge and subsequent solution is profiled. The case study follows the process of defining the problem, the selection process, implementation, department buy-ins, and the end results. A section on lessons learned offers advice for other organizations thinking about or in the beginning stages of automating their processes. “Involve management and users in the requirements gathering, evaluation process, and implementation planning. This will get you buy-in,” offers VSE’s Chief Information Officer Dave Chivers. “Take time to think through all of the details.”
Puridiom continues to work with VSE to help them employ best practices to increase bottom line savings and assist with analysis of production data to forecast, track trends, and evaluate histories. To read the entire case study go the Puridiom website or the SDCE website.
