4Site Purchasing / Procurement

4Site Purchasing / Procurement, part of the 4Site integrated EAM solution, helps maintenance managers keep procurement costs in line with accurate, up-to-date information, streamlined processes, and improved supply chain collaboration.

Tight integration with 4Site Inventory Management ensures that the right products are stocked at optimal inventory levels. Purchasing managers can quickly identify the appropriate suppliers with the best prices, and manage orders and contracts to promote a secure supply of quality products at the best prices. Web-based requisitioning tools make it easy for large operations or organizations with dispersed satellite locations to keep critical parts in stock at any location.

And, 4Site's electronic catalogs make detailed information on any purchased part readily accessible. This is extremely important when hazardous materials are involved - with the electronic catalog tools, plant managers know exactly what is being handled, and exactly how to handle it to ensure employee and community safety.
