What is eProcurement?

Electronic procurement (eProcurement) systems use digital technologies to automate and streamline the entire procurement process – from requisition to payment. By integrating with your in-house systems, our eProcurement solutions create a seamless electronic connection between your company and Cromwell.

Average cost of raising an order without an eProcurement solution is £120.

By implementing an eProcurement solution, that cost can be reduced to £30.
