PARIS: Cloud procurement provider Hubwoo has partnered with Simplifying-IT and released a suite of solutions designed to let employees use procurement business applications more easily. Hubwoo’s Simplicity Package uses Simplifying-IT’s requisitioning user interface in its cloud procurement solutions powered by SAP. The company said users can now take advantage of more intuitive experience.

“We’re pleased to take the online consumerized user experience that employees are familiar with in their personal lives and bring that to the workplace,” said Gregory Mark, Hubwoo’s CEO. “Our partnership with Simplifying-IT, along with Hubwoo’s Business Network solutions, drive ease-of-use for procurement users in any deployment model, including companies that are running an on-premise ERP-based procurement solution.”

The partnership includes a Simplicity Package for requisitioning from on-premise SAP ERP systems, or on-premise modular SAP procurement solutions. Hubwoo’s user adoption solutions include:

Simplicity Package
A user interface for requisitioning, shopping cart creation, order status checking, goods receipts and approval processing.

The Business Network
The Business Network is a global collaboration network allowing electronic collaboration with a company’s trading partner base. It involves a turnkey service to electronically connect buyers to their suppliers. All a buyer’s approved suppliers can be made available for electronic procurement and invoicing.

Catalog Manager & Search

Catalog Manager enables catalog management capabilities for buyers and suppliers to deliver content and approved pricing for spend capture and contract compliance. Catalog update responsibilities are given to suppliers, allowing buyers to scale catalog usage and reduce their effort down to auditing and approval.

Search is a multi-supplier search engine that brings the graphical search and selection experience of the consumer world to corporate procurement.  Through a single search engine, users have access to their approved goods and services – catalog suppliers, service forms, supplier hosted content, and contracts stored in their enterprise contract systems.  Search allows users to find the correct goods and services the first time.
