Following a successful implementation of the Amici platform and the Delivery and Finance support modules, this well-established company now found new challenges with the purchasing process for non-standard lab products and services.
Contractor, travel, training and event purchases were logged directly in the finance software resulting in valuable time being sacrificed by the scientist and finance teams.
Finance could not keep track of what purchases had been completed therefore causing missed and duplicate payments of invoices.
To move the purchasing process for non-standard lab products and services to the Amici platform.
The Amici Self-Serve module was adopted by the client and has since allowed for all spend to be tracked via the Amici platform. All POs raised in the one place, approved and visible therefore allowing finance to confirm receipt of delivery and seamlessly match invoices.
Generating a manual purchase order (either via a finance package, excel or word) which then needs to be passed for approval, typically can take around 1 day. Raising a self-serve PO on Amici and getting approval only takes minutes.
