Large organizations can benefit much more than smaller businesses. This is especially true with a centralized finance/purchasing department for a multi-location, statewide, or nationwide company as it streamlines the process to order and deliver where the request originated from. Requesting purchase on the fly or as needed make ePro and excellent choice both for management or front line staff. Having preferred vendors and vendor codes established in your organization make using eProcurement much easier for record keeping.

  • System allows for quick ordering from preferred vendors or past orders. This can expedite the process for frequent users.
  • PeopleSoft communicates with our finance department so allows for quick lookup and linking to the thousands of accounts that can be used fro purchasing. This reduces error in entering incorrect numbers that do not exist.
  • Streamline flow to the direct supervisor or account control to approve the ePro request. Triggers a direct email with link to the request, and the review/approval is less than a few clicks.

Cons

Ariba Procurement

  • Too costly
  • Quite slow
Sachin Aggarwal profile photo

PeopleSoft eProcurement

  • Once the initial approval is granted the current system is not setup to send any follow-up notification around additional approvals or order completion. This creates somewhat of a surprise effect on when an order will actually be made or delivered.
  • Due to the volume of accounts that can be entered, there are limited restrictions for someone to entered an incorrect cost center or even one they do not own.
  • Is not mobile friendly and must be logged into the organization's network to access the internal PeopleSoft platform.

I am aware of better systems, but this is what the employer I work for has to offer. Overall, there are fewer negatives than positives so I would support the usability. New staff members can quickly obtain access and go through a 5-10 minute training video that we build in house. The speed at which someone can become a proficient user speaks to the usability of ePro.

PeopleSoft is a straight forward system that allows greater customization and communicates better with the rest of the organization's business tools. Concur is a "newer" system with a better user interface, but has proven to provide an even slower processing speed due to the numerous hierarchical approval settings. For this reason, Concur is only used for travel and expense purposes rather than invoicing or purchasing.

Return on Investment

Ariba Procurement

  • SAP Ariba has the same flexible pricing scheme typical for SAP products, meaning that each client receives a separate SMB/enterprise pricing plan tailored to his needs. Contact the company for more details, and ask for your quote.

PeopleSoft eProcurement

  • Positive is the centralized means to order and request purchases throughout the organization.
  • Negative is the ordering department typically has less control over delivery, and unless requested does not have a means to track shipment or learn of potential delays.
  • When ordering through eProcurement you are at the mercy for processing speed of a the purchasing or controlling department. Some 24 hours sales or discount codes often go to waste due to the time the request is submitted and goes to purchase.
