APMS Purchasing Hub

APMS manages exclusive catalogue pricing for most trade supplies, including whitegoods. Our policy is to ensure we won’t be beaten on price or delivery. With Catalogue content tools, suppliers are directly incorporated into APMS’s procurement processes and catalogue management solution, so that they can maintain and update their products and catalogues efficiently.

This reduces costs and improves overall quality and turnaround time for updated product assortments and exclusive contract prices. This results in maximising savings, buying power and purchasing compliance in addition to:

  • Higher degree of compliance to procurement contracts
  • Reduction of the time spent looking for each product
  • Improved process automation and control in the procurement process
  • Reduction in order processing cycle times
  • Cost reduction through decrease supplier order and invoice disputes
  • Price tracking and history
  • Purchase requestioning, reporting and statistical tracking

APMS manages jCatalog Directed Search(SM) technology which provides our users with one simple search interface that gives them access to supplier catalogues with approved assortments and contracts. Quick keyword searches direct users to approved local catalogues, punch-out catalogues, contracts, services, and requisition templates to which they have access. Simple and advanced search functions and category based browsing direct the users to the proper suppliers, contracts, and category based requisition templates.
