Automated Supply Chain
The days of filling out extensive paper work and the hours needed to process purchase orders, requisitions and payments to purchase products are, thankfully, a distant memory. But some schools within a district, or even departments with a single school, may continue to face challenges with procurement due to variations in operating systems. These discrepancies can cause purchasing history, inventory, supplier catalogues and pricing information to be in different locations or in a format that isn’t easily accessible to everyone making purchasing decisions.
Virtucom’s Automated Supply Chain System helps synchronize and coordinate purchasing information and activities. We’ll ensure that the correct amount of hardware, software, accessories and supplies are in the right place at the right time. Implementing our supply chain system will minimize your overstocks, eliminate redundant spending, and increase efficiencies in responding to supply chain events.
We understand that schools face difficult economic times as they encounter drastic cuts in funding and must be held accountable for every penny spent. So it’s essential that administrators secure the best prices on hardware and software to stay within budgets.
Virtucom works with an expansive supplier network of top-tier hardware and software manufacturer in order to offer schools like yours the best products and prices on today’s market. Our broad distribution channels assure a well-stocked inventory of the products that your school may require, including:
Electronic commerce provides numerous benefits, such as reducing manual efforts and associated human errors, minimizing the paper trail, and realizing the overall benefits of an automated supply chain. An E-Procurement system can help your school realize savings, but only if it is appropriately integrated with supplier systems.
