CHAMPS Purchasing

When you evaluate the purchasing needs for maintenance operations within a large organization, there is no substitute for a fully integrated feature rich procurement component. A robust purchasing system will dramatically improve plant performance by sharpening your organization’s ability to respond efficiently to normal supply-cycle replenishment, as well as unplanned emergencies requiring critical spare parts and services for the maintenance of essential plant systems.

The CHAMPS Purchasing component provides flexible full-function enterprise capabilities assisted by user defined work flow routing to help speed decisions throughout the organization. CHAMPS Purchasing allows three-way matching of the purchase order, goods received, and the vendor’s invoice. The system also provides for discrepancy tracking and variance approval. Complete vendor information may be defined within the system along with 1099 tracking, vendor to part price cross-reference, direct payment to vendor, vendor quotation, and performance.
