'Tapping Solutions from the Web'
The two primary components in a purchasing cycle are 'buy' and 'sell'. The 'buy' occurs when a consumer places an order, and the 'sell', results when the vender delivers product.
In web based transactions, the seller makes the process appear simple, attractive and 'fun'. All the buyer has to do is 'click' and pay.
When corporate dollars are spent however, the process becomes more complicated due to audit compliance and time / labor expense. Enter technology.
System Automation can reduce the administrative cost of Purchase Order cycle by more than 58%. With technological driven systems, companies can save thousands of dollars in operational expense each year.
In support of this projection, Department of Labor expense statistics for clerical employees that perform procurement tasks were used together with time on task studies by the Aberdeen Group (Boston, MA).
The bottom line conclusion is that a ‘clean’ Purchase Order cycle requires approximately 1.5 hours’ of time / labor for a total (minimum) cost of approximately $60 per Purchase Order.
