Better Purchase Management with CHAMPS Purchasing
When people look for ways to improve their maintenance management, most look at areas like inventory management, scheduling, or work orders. These areas are undoubtedly key areas for success in maintenance efforts, but there are other areas that can contribute substantially to your success as well.
Purchasing comes to mind when thinking about overlooked areas that can impact your maintenance budget. Specifically, not being able to accurately track and verify purchases can wreak havoc on your maintenance costs. In order to make sense of everything, it’s important that you have tools capable of tracking all aspects of your purchasing.
To put this in perspective, imagine all of the various processes that occur when going through the purchasing process. Requests need to be generated, reviewed and either approved or rejected. Not to mention, there are a bunch of other special case scenarios like generating a blanket PO rather than a singular, converting RFQs directly to POs, and more.
Keeping the purchasing aspect of your maintenance efforts in check and on track is critical to your program’s performance because the amount of money you spend on materials and new parts has a direct impact on your performance, not only in available resources but in your maintenance crews ability to perform their job functions.
That’s why we’ve taken great care in crafting our purchasing module. Designed to provide you with all the tools you need to properly manage all of your purchasing aspects, you can take advantage of three-way matching for PO/shipment/invoice verification, automatically convert purchase requests into orders, create blanket purchase orders, and more.
