Places for People has optimised its ‘source-to-pay’ process with Proactis, with the aim of improving transparency and due diligence across the group’s tendering processes, achieve compliance with European directives for tendering and a gain a single, unilateral view of all contract documents and supply-chain partners.
Places for People publishes 30-40 large formal tenders each year, with smaller, less complex tenders published using Proactis Quick Quote functionality. With Proactis Sourcing, all tendering documentation is now held centrally, providing a complete audit trail of the whole process and ensures that the group complies with European rules and regulations(e.g. bids can’t be viewed until the deadline has passed).
Places for People uses the supplier portal within Proactis Contract Management to work with its Unit4 Business World On! ERP system to capture all supplier requirements, in terms of insurance levels and accreditations. Instead of having to verify every response to every question, the entire process is reduced in terms of time scale, and provides an audit trail as all information is captured and can be shared.
