Efficient Purchasing Lifecycle Management
The Nautical Systems (NS) Purchasing Manager provides unified management of procurement and inventory control activities to deliver an efficient, cost-effective and compliant procurement process. Procurement plays a strategic role in driving operational efficiency and cost savings in the organization.
- NS is the hub of comprehensive supply chain management, supporting budget control, vendor contract management, electronic bidding and order placement, logistics tracking, electronic invoicing and catalog management.
- Fully traceable purchasing process includes enforcement of company-specific approval controls.
- Inventory management tracks critical parts and min/max levels for spares and consumables by vessel and warehouse.
- Inventory replenishment is automated via client policy levels. Requisitions needed to bring spare parts inventory to minimum requirements can be generated with one click.
- Intuitive dashboards provide simple and efficient access to all the information needed to manage the entire purchasing process.
