System Selection & Procurement

Among the most common supply chain systems procured are warehouse management systems, transport management systems and telematics systems. To enable system selection and procurement your business requires a well-defined ‘Request for quotation’ document. The preparation of this will require process analysis and system requirements definition to have taken place.

The next stage is choosing your potential suppliers. Our logistics industry knowledge, along with our tried and tested supply chain systems acquisition process, can be tailored to meet your exact needs: From starting with establishing a non-disclosure agreement prior to sending ‘Request for quotation’ documents to potential supply chain systems suppliers, to conclusion of a negotiated contract with comprehensive schedules on system acceptance criteria, service levels and pricing. It is essential to the success of your systems implementation that your system supplier is contracted to establish appropriate access requirements to the programme and provide relevant training.

For successful system selection and procurement we recommend a small amount of bespoking to the supplier’s software. As a result your business will benefit from:

There is a tendency to under estimate the time scale for these system selection and procurement activities which, dependent upon system complexity, integration requirements, bespoking needs and size of the supply chain system to be acquired, can take between 4 and 12 months. In particular contract negotiation can be very protracted.
