Flexible configuration of workflows from the procurement of simple products such as materials up to complex commodity groups such as services or even construction services via the GAEB data exchange format make swift and efficient releases possible.
Regardless of whether you start with a purchase requisition or with a request in SAP or Futura, the circle of bidders can be extended easily. Letting colleagues and service providers access your transactions facilitates task sharing and control during absence time.
With FUTURA you can interlink your bidders and suppliers quite easily. Accordingly, you can tender comfortably and seamlessly. In FUTURA, the offers submitted are automatically displayed and evaluated in a price comparison list that can be configured according to your wishes. Compare offers from different tender versions or rounds of price negotiation and simulate the planned result using your intended requirements. The concomitant communication with your bidders is also integrated into the system – therefore the whole inquiry and tendering process is transparent and audit-proof.
Within a very short time, various rounds of negotiation can be conducted with minimal effort from all parties involved. You can carry out the “last bid” in form of a purchasing auction. Extensive configuration options allow you to customize the rules and transparency to meet the needs of your project. If required, you can transfer quotations, contracts or orders to SAP at the push of a button. In tenders for construction works FUTURA serves as a GAEB converter for SAP.
FUTURA facilitates interactive work with your SAP-system. All items of the offer or the purchase order can be compiled as service lines in SAP – including all related documents and attachments. These are transferred to your archive or document management system. Manual intervention is therefore no longer necessary.
