Amici’s Consolidation Module allows life science organisations to combine their purchase orders and have them delivered together.
If you are regularly sending low-value purchase orders to suppliers, you may be incurring minimum order charges as well as shipping costs. Sending one, higher value purchase order, will avoid these extra charges – and they can mount up quite significantly over time.
This is good news if you work in the Finance Department. Less deliveries means fewer invoices to be processed.
A reduced number of deliveries to Goods In means less boxes to handle and less paperwork to process.
Our customers are enjoying the following features and benefits of the Consolidation Module;
There may be an occasion where you need an urgent item sooner. When this is the case, consolidation can be bypassed.
During a visit to one of our customers based at Oxford Science Park in the UK, we discovered they were having challenges with multiple orders arriving on-site on a daily basis. We added the Consolidation module to their ePo-to-Pay suite of solutions. Read their case study here to find out how this organisation is benefiting from combining their purchase orders.Get in touch
The My Amici Order Consolidation module has provided a return on investment both financially, due to reduced shipping costs and minimum order charges, and has effected time savings due to reduced processing. The system also maintains the flexibility to override consolidation in the occasional event that there is a business need to place an urgent order.
A knock-on effect (with the Consolidation module), is that the scientists more often talk to each other before placing an order but mostly I like the fewer invoices, hardly any minimum order charge. Would I recommend this module to other businesses? Absolutely yes, no doubt about it. Especially if the company has more than a few people making the orders.
The MyAmici Order Consolidation module has provided significant benefits since we implemented it; it has created greater efficiencies within the organisation with reduced processing of multiple orders and has reduced our minimum order charges and shipping costs. The flexibility of the system allows for business-critical orders to override the consolidation process ensuring we have the best approach possible for our business purchases going forward.
