Revolutionise all your back-office processes

Unit4 Business World delivers innovative procurement solutions for your organisation. Eliminate time-wasting admin and discover automated solutions to streamline your entire procurement cycle.

Unit4 Business World procurement management software is part of a fully integrated financial management solution. Unit4’s procurement solutions support, automate and standardise all stages of the procurement cycle – from requisitioning to paying vendors.

As an intuitive purchase order software solution, it takes care of all your back-office needs, such as:

  • Initial identification of a need for products and services
  • Expenditure approval
  • Electronic data and information exchange with suppliers
  • Goods delivery
  • Expediting and inspection
  • Invoice matching and payment settlement

This intelligent procurement management software is designed for organisations that want to streamline their procurement practices – without sacrificing control. As a flexible procurement solution, it is equally suited for both centralised and de-centralised purchasing processes.

As an intuitive system, it frees up procurement managers from operational, day-to-day tasks, letting you focus on managing and negotiating stronger supplier relationships, scrutinising spend and purchase decisions, and evolve the procurement function from a cost to a profit-centre.

As user-friendly purchase order software you get a single, easy-to-use screen/dashboard of goods and services. Use the same system, whether ordering electronically, from a marketplace, on paper, or from another department.

Unit4 Business World’s procurement management software automatically identifies and applies the correct buying process, specified for a particular employee or role. Boost adoption rates internally and externally, and improve visibility of your entire purchasing cycle.
