The purchasing department of a large engineering company is managed by a purchasing manager, who in the company hierarchy falls directly under the CEO. In the purchasing department, buyers are divided into several groups according to the commodities they provide. Purchase requests are assigned to them by an ERP system (information system for enterprise resource planning), which can distinguish which buyer the request belongs to according to the set key.
In this example, our client has a really extensive purchasing department, and groups related commodities under their senior buyers. These buyers are responsible (among other things) for passing on up-to-date purchase information to their supervisor. Their range of products includes thousands of items. The problem with such large companies is that they suffer from poor or insufficient communication between managers about the performance of individual employees in the entire department. This was one of the reasons why our client was unable to keep track of the status of tasks that were constantly piling up.
ApuTime is fast becoming one of the most user-friendly and efficient tools for managing contracts and projects. We also managed to reduce the stress of managers, which was related to the lack of up-to-date information and difficulty in their decision making when setting priorities/sequence of steps. The managers are now confident about their processes which are handled by mathematical models and state of the art AI. The application is also beneficial from the position of the executives themselves, who are able to focus on their own work.
