Lhotse Forms: Request Products and Services Quickly and Intuitively
Procurement software has historically been over-complicated delivering an un-intuitive user interface. Creating a purchase request (PR) should be a simple and automatic process but currently thousands of business users have to go through endless back-and-forth communication just to get a simple order out. Complex software necessitating expertise and specialist procurement knowledge: it doesn’t paint a pretty picture.
What this has resulted in is a total disconnect between businesses and their procurement departments. All too often employees in charge of indirect procurement are left dealing with complicated purchase requisitions from which details are difficult to decipher. Or else, the worrisome threats posed by uncontrolled [Maverick Buying] (https://www.lhotse.de/en/blog/5-types-of-maverick-spend) and an exploding supplier base fall to them. Surely PR creation could be made simpler?
Enter: Lhotse Forms!
What are Lhotse Forms?
Lhotse Forms are intuitive intake channels which support and guide users through the purchase request creation process from start to finish. Any business user regardless of specialist procurement expertise can use our software.
We take the hassle out of PR creation by ensuring that every request is made compliantly and in line with your company’s internal procurement policies and guidelines. Lhotse Forms also guarantees zero system breaks and vastly reduces Maverick Buying.
Our software supports full integration with your company’s existing ERP system and eProcurement solution. Answers, for example relating to suppliers, cost centres, or material groups, can be pre-filled out in Lhotse Forms by your ERP MasterData. After the form is completed, it is automatically transported back into your ERP system in the form of a PR ready for approval and further processing.
