Procurement Technology Services




We’ve been working in partnership with organisations to implement leading procurement solutions for over 16 years. Expertise is end-end, from sourcing to expenses, P2P, invoicing and analytics.

Our own cloud-based, rapid deployment methodology, XoomCloud, means we can get systems live quicker and with less risk, allowing greater focus on change management to fully embed these solutions into the business. Our focus is on Procurement outcomes, not just technical go-lives.

Business Case & Vendor Selection

Xoomworks is experienced in preparing business cases for eProcurement solutions. We understand the benefits that can realised and how they can be quantified. The business case for most procurement solutions has the following elements:

  • Lower cost of goods and services purchased
  • Increased efficiency
  • Compliance
  • Risk mitigation
  • Improved management information

Many of these savings are achieved through a combination of systems and behaviour change. Upstream tools such as Sourcing, and Contract Management create the opportunity for savings while a transactional solution such as a Purchase to Pay tool captures them. Changing procurement behaviour and change management plays an important part.

As well as assisting with the creation of a business case, Xoomworks can also act as an advisor in the process of vendor and system selection. We have direct experience of most of the leading solutions available. Our experienced procurement consultants can recommend vendors based on the client’s requirements and assist in the creation and project management of the selection process. We can offer eRFx support from our near-shore Centre of Procurement Excellence in Cluj , including eAuction planning and management.
