Precoro
Precoro is great if you need to keep your organization aware of where in the purchasing process an order is, and if you need a place to communicate about orders & keep a record of those communications. It does not work too well for a variety of purchasing requests - the process lacks complexity.

Zip
Zip can be used for routing all vendor-level approvals for new vendors and all renewals across our organization. It can also be helpful for managing all purchases from existing vendors. For non-spend related approvals, it’s not as well suited. Zip was definitely designed for procurement workflows. They also have a vendor management portal that links up directly to something like NetSuite for management and visibility.

Zip
  • No coding - Ability for the administrator to make changes without development resources helps us be agile as a procurement org.
  • Visibility to the user in a great user interface
  • Accountability (helps us track SLAs on response time), Audit trails keeping track of everything
  • The implementation team was incredible, as is ongoing support. They want you to succeed in your goals vs. just implement their tool

Cons
Precoro
  • The "bundles" in Precoro are not actually bundles. I would like to connect 2 of our catalog items together so that when 1 is selected for purchasing, the other item is required
  • Sometimes the comments wont properly tag a person that we're trying to tag
  • More options to customize the approval workflow based on location
  • Ability to edit where we're buying an item from without having to deny the request

Zip
  • There are some duplicated fields such as anticipated total spend vs. price line item breakdown that asks for the same thing. This is a little bit tedious
  • Does not show which invoices got processed and applied to open POs
  • Does not integrate / migrate special custom fields within Zip Intake-to-Procure into other tech stacks (NetSuite)

Alternatives Considered
Precoro
Precoro is unique because it can be customizable from start to finish without needing to build in API. It is extremely easy to use and understand, so we did not need to give our employees extensive training as we did with Tradogram. Precoro also allowed us to communicate about orders right within the order itself, where the other software did not.

Zip
I prefer Zip for its for its user-friendly interface and ease of adoption, especially if the organization values a simpler and more intuitive system for users across various departments. Comparatively, Zip is a more budget-friendly solution compared to some enterprise-level systems like SAP ARIBA or Oracle PeopleSoft, especially for smaller or mid-sized organizations with specific procurement needs.

Return on Investment
Precoro
  • We can track each purchase order, who created it, and why. They are no longer lost, and we can always see the history. The dashboard allows us to monitor information about all essential documents and at what stage they are now and keep track of which invoices have not yet been paid or partially paid.
  • By setting up budgets for each department, we can effectively plan the allocation and prevent overspending.
  • The system is very flexible and convenient. I can't imagine my work without it.

  • Visibility for all necessary approvers and reviewers of the process.
  • Lack of open API to other systems (i.e Mondays, Smartsheet) is causing concerns for team that might want to move away from current tool.
  • No 3rd party implementation required is huge cost / time savings.
