Is there a cost associated with setting these solutions up or using them?
All our eProcurement solutions on offer are free to set up and use, there are no hidden costs, they simply make shopping with us even easier.
Do I have to install or download any additional hardware or software?
In a nutshell no; there are no additional hardware or software needed. If you wish to use our WebFMS solution you simply need to have Capita SIMS FMS and for Punch-out we currently connect with PECOS, @UK and CIVICA.
Who do we speak to if we have any questions or need support once we are up and running?
If you need any help or advice once you are using the WebFMS, WebFlow or Punch-out you can contact our customer service team any weekeday from 8am to 5:30pm by phone or email, who will be more than happy to help.
Do any of these solutions allow us to review orders before they are placed in order to control budget spend?
As Punch-out and WebFMS already have built in approval, once your order is imported it would follow the usual approval method.
If you are looking to put authorisation in place which allows you to see all order requests that the buyers at your establishment make, then WebFlow is the perfect solution. Find out more about WebFlow.
