Electronic procurement E-Procurement: Reduce costs by automating the procurement processes

Manual procurement processes involve a lot of work and are prone to errors. End-to-end digitization and automation ensures that supply chains are optimized, staff is relieved of routine tasks, and valuable resources are freed up for important and time-consuming processes, e.g., for the individualized and personal cultivation of supplier relationships.

The right solution for every supplier

The Retarus Business Integration Platform helps you exchange orders, confirmations, delivery notes, and invoices with all of your suppliers through an automated and digital process, regardless of their technical platform.

Efficient solutions for procurement

Retarus provides services that optimize your supply chain management so that you can digitize and automate order processes for all of your suppliers. For your most important suppliers, we offer connection to our Managed EDI Service. Our experienced EDI team provides professional consultancy so that integration runs without a hitch. Your suppliers will be able to autonomously prepare for technical integration and test their setup so that establishing the connection is fast and cost-effective.

Suppliers who are not using EDI or for whom EDI is not economically viable can be connected via Retarus WebEDI. This solution is made efficient by an almost fully automated initial integration for these suppliers. The portal is easy to navigate and user-friendly, meaning no introduction or training is necessary. This ensures maximum ease of operation and usability by your suppliers.

Up to 75% more order confirmations from C suppliers

C suppliers often present special challenges. Lack of technology, low order volume, or missing solutions for this type of suppliers are typical scenarios. This often means that you never receive an order confirmation, or if you do, a basic “We hereby confirm” email shows up in your inbox. Messages like these inevitably lead to manual work for your procurement department.

With Retarus MailEDI, you not only significantly increase the number of order confirmations, but also receive them as EDI documents in your ERP system. Your supplier can confirm, decline, or process the order you placed directly in the order email, without having to first log into a web portal. No other solution allows you to generate order confirmations this easily. Retarus processes the confirmation in a message customized to your ERP system. Suppliers do not need to go through an implementation process, which means you can connect them to your system at no additional charge.

Retarus added-value services for procurement

Retarus Services offer automated order processes. Furthermore, they provide features that support your daily procurement work. For example, optional reports show which order confirmations are past due. Automated reminders help reduce manual work. Automated document validation helps to ensure that incoming documents, such as invoices, are complete and correct, and then transfers them to special processing if errors are found.
