Increase Diversity Spend
As the technology partner to dozens of socioeconomic certified vendors, we enable any size supplier to support the volume of business produced by large customers through technological efficiency. Whether the SD/VOB is the direct vendor, or a Reseller in a relationship with a national vendor, our platform builds capacity by streamlining and automating basic business processes, allowing the SD/VOB to participate in any eProcurement initiative. Robust reporting tools allow for complete data analytics down to the line item level on every purchase so addressing SD/VOB spend reporting requirements is effortless.
Use P-Cards in a PCI-compliant, CISP-certified environment
The ePS platform is PCI-compliant and CISP-certified. This means that we not only securely store credit card /P-Card information but securely pass the card information on the Purchase Order to the supplier, and then we process the credit cards on behalf of the supplier. Your data remains secure at all times. We do not ever expose your P-Card information to risk of fraud.
Securely Access from Anywhere
Our software is fully scalable, flexible and protected by the highest level of data security. Cloud-based tool allows all customers to access the same version of the software from anywhere there is internet access. Access is secured through unique logins.
Support National, Regional and Local Suppliers
ePS Fulfill allows any supplier to receive electronic purchase orders and return e-invoices with Level III line item detail on every invoice, every time, guaranteed.
Reduce Invoice Discrepancies
Because every supplier is using ePS Fulfill for invoicing, you control pricing by preventing price changes on POs. You control overshipments – suppliers cannot invoice for more than the ordered amount, nor can they add shipping and additional charges unless authorized. You even control tax application, with the ability to prevent tax from being applied to tax-exempt organizations.
Use Sophisticated Shopping Tools
Favorite carts, Frequently Ordered Lists, Bulk Uploads, Flexible Catalog Content Views are just some of the features that help you drive spend toward preferred contracts. Shopping Dashboard flexibility allows you to bring your SD/VOB suppliers front and center, targeting your socioeconomic certified spend initiatives.
Access Product Content
Our platform accommodates both hosted catalog content and punchout capabilities. Our ePS Catalog Manager allows suppliers to load catalogs that remain unpublished until you approve them.
Approval hierarchies based on dollar amount, supplier, budget codes or a combination. Catalog content control down to the user level allows you to determine who can see what content, and how much can be purchased. Tying budgets to users, departments, cost centers or business units allow for tight corporate control while accommodating decentralized purchasing requirements.
Gain Visibility into Spend
Complete reporting available on requisitions, purchase orders and invoices down to the line item level. More than fifty criteria may be selected to build the exact report you need. All reports are exportable to Excel. Addressing SD/VOB spend reporting requirements is effortless.
Access Level III Line Item Details
Because suppliers are using our software, they are able to provide Level III line item detail on every invoice. Level III line item detail includes standard information such as billing address, zip code & invoice number, plus Sales Tax, Freight, any additional charges, and line item details including part number, part description, quantity purchased, unit of measure, unit price and line item totals.
Please the Auditors
Our Supplier side software, ePS Fulfill, interacts real-time with our Buyer side software, ePS Procure, populating shipment and invoice information directly onto the Purchase Order record. This means that all documentation required by auditors is available at a glance. An exact three-way match between order, shipment and invoice can even be confirmed through the Receiving function. Bring on the auditors!
Receive Excellent Customer Service
A basic precept within the ePS organization is that excellent Customer Service is primary to our success. We value the relationships we have developed with all of our customers, whether they are Buyers or Suppliers or Resellers.
