Rely on consistent ordering and billing based on framework agreements

Framework agreements or contracts increase the transparency of transactions and billing processes and, in addition, they facilitate operative purchasing. Besides planned services, unplanned services in the form of ad hoc measures also play a major role in maintenance. Purchasers, service providers, suppliers and approvers are interconnected online, in real time, via the FUTURA® Procurement Cloud.

FUTURA Service Entry Cloud
Facilitate billing – just record and accept the services rendered online

Many stakeholders and fragmented task structures make it hard to keep an overall view and adhere to agreed payment terms. Has the service been rendered, are the costs justified? Have the contents of the framework agreement been observed? These questions often lead to a time-consuming verification process. Recording and verifying services rendered become transparent and easy at the same time with the FUTURA® Service Entry Cloud.
