IT Procurement is a key service offered by Blue Connections. Our procurement team specialise in the strategic process of IT product sourcing, by researching, negotiating and forward planning to ensure we achieve your purchasing requirements.
IT Procurement involves both strategic and administrative responsibilities. It includes the creation and management of request for quotations (RFQs), requests for proposals (RFPs), requests for information (RFI), overseeing master service agreements (MSA) and managing key vendor relationships, and supplier and procurement panels.
Our internal multi-user ERP and accounting solution ensures all our team members have complete visibility of every aspect of the workflow cycle from stock control, sales, quoting, invoicing, financials, and reporting. Therefore, many of the daily procurement tasks are able to be automated, including the process of purchasing goods/services and maintaining inventory, allowing more time for the team to focus on your specific procurement requirements.
The easy to use web interface with secure login into the Blue Connections procurement portal allows customers to view their custom catalogue, place orders and run real time reports such as back order and invoice reports. Many customers use the portal to view their stock holdings (buffer stock) and forecast their requirements through to the procurement team, to ensure they have the right amount of stock for their upcoming project deliverables.
Our vendor agnostic relationship allows Blue Connections to source you the best pricing and finance options available on the market. We specialise in a variety of financial and asset lifecycle solutions that you can leverage immediately to assist with alleviating financial strain, and position you for future success.
