Relieving the challenges and complexity of global procurement
Procurement has become a strategic agenda item for most businesses and organisations today, yet the challenges for Business-to-Business (B2B) procurement remain plentiful. Many IT directors and procurement officers face unique challenges around purchasing technology and the complexity in the quoting, purchasing and roll-out of global IT projects – often leading to extra expense and delayed implementation.
To help our clients maintain the high level of visibility and control needed to manage the procurement of IT products and services on a global basis while still driving economies of scale, we developed a global eProcurement system called Dimension Data Direct.
Dimension Data Direct has consistently provided our clients with tangible time and cost savings and many clients have realised the benefits that expand far beyond the IT department. One client reported a 31% decrease in quote to delivery time and lowered procurement costs, while another told us their average quote to PO process went from two weeks to two days, once they began utilising Direct.
Today, Dimension Data Direct supports six different languages, over 30 currencies and local business rules for countries in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.
