Desired Results from Clarus eProcurement
  • Provide a seamless easy to use requisitioning
    front end for our in house developed legacy
    systems. This is in contrast to our legacy
    Online Requisition System (ORS) that was a stand
    alone system
  • Reduce Transaction costs associated with
    generating a Purchase Order (PO).
  • Enable our users to make full use of both our MMS
    catalog and Vendor Non-SKU catalogs to streamline
    the requisitioning process.

The Shopping Basket is the heart of eProcurement
  • Search through the catalog for items on your list
  • Put the items in your Shopping Basket
  • Submit your order (check out)

8
Search the Catalog
  • The eProcurement catalog allows you to view all
    items from all Suppliers in a single location.
  • You can search the catalog using either keywords
    or the item number.

or if you know the item number you
can enter that in the Item Nbr field.

Integration with Legacy Systems
  • Challenge - existing mainframe systems use IMS,
    DB2 and Focus Databases while the Clarus uses SQL
    Server on an NT platform.
  • Integration was accomplished by using data copy
    methods from SQL Server to DB2 and from the
    mainframe to SQL server. The file copy intervals
    vary from near real time for the finished
    requisitions to MMS, to every five minutes for
    the Supplier table MMS to Clarus, to once a day
    for files like the User table.
  • In addition to Clarus generated emails, our
    mainframe processes use email to notify users,
    Purchasing Managers and Customer Service of
    events and or work that needs to occur.

Implementation
  • Phased cut-over to 40 UP Departments/Organizations
  • New Technology a training issue for
    requisitioners
  • Departments have different requisitioning needs
    which continues to drive changes to our MMS and
    Clarus Systems
  • User Acceptance has been positive
  • Issues
  • Non-catalog processing efficiency
  • Consistent training experience

15
Implementation Schedule

Warehouse Sourcing Objective
  • Provide a single MMS Stock Catalog view to our
    Clarus eProcurement users.
  • Provide a automatic determination of the
    warehouse or direct to vendor while loading the
    requisition into the MMS System.
  • Inform the user (via email) as to which
    warehouse(s) were selected to source the request.
  • Honor warehouse standard issue package quantities
    for selected warehouses / direct to vendor MMS
    orders.

17
Warehouse Sourcing Specifics
  • All stock items (MMS) are assigned a commodity
    code.
  • A commodity code belongs to either a default
    warehouse or a network
  • A network is a collection of unique regions that
    covers the USA.
  • A region is a collection of prefix zip codes
    belonging to a network and specifying only one
    warehouse.
  • A network can used by one or more commodities.
  • A warehouse can be specified by the item number
    and kind, for special cases like drinking water.

Supplier Enablement - Focus
  • Identifying and enabling suppliers with high
    non-stock transaction volume
  • Suppliers with a contractual agreement in place
  • Goal of reducing non-catalog transactions

23
Supplier Enablement - Focus
  • Ensuring contract compliance with e-Catalog
    Management Reports
  • Contract Compliance Report
  • Item Duplication Report
  • Catalog Variance Report
  • Non- Catalog Frequency Report
  • A better shopping experience for our end- user
    customers with web- enabled supplier content

24
Supplier Enablement encompasses much more than
simply loading a catalog

Challenges and Opportunities

    upgrade required.
  • Managing capacity as we grow from 1000 to 3000
    system users
  • Continuing need for training and communication,
    especially as we evolve.
  • Supplier Enablement
  • Tap-outs
