Contraqer is a SaaS procurement management system that automates the entire procurement process from RFQ generation all the way to packing list, support contract, and returns management.
Sure they do, but that doesn’t make them procurement management software—just software with some procurement management functionality. Contraqer, on the other hand, is purpose-built for procurement management. We set out to be the best, not the biggest.
Besides, most of these “we can do everything” platforms are to be much too expensive—and too complicated—for small and medium businesses. That’s why so many still manage procurement with Word & Excel or one of the older or more narrow tools on the market.
We’re glad you asked! Contraqer…
Contraqer is more than just ‘Procure to Pay’: Many existing solutions focus on Procure to Pay, but there’s more to procurement management than that. Contraqer manages RFQs, Quotes, Purchase Orders, Invoices, Packing Lists, Returns, and Support Contracts – the entire lifecycle.
Of course, if you want to manage POs and Invoices in your accounting system, that’s fine too, because…
Contraqer is built for Integration: We created the best procurement management software, but we knew you need other tools too. We designed Contraqer from day one with the ability to integrate with your other tools like Salesforce, Quickbooks, Dynamics, Netsuite, Deltek, Concur, Expense Cloud, and even FedEx, UPS, and DHL.
Contraqer conforms to your process—not the other way around: Contraqer’s customization features allow you to make it work the way you want to work. Whatever your procurement process is, Contraqer can conform to you rather forcing you to drop everything and adapt to Contraqer.
Contraqer is user-friendly: Contraqer was built from the ground up as a web application. We’ve used the latest in HTML 5 and CSS 3 to create an interface that is snappy, intuitive, beautiful, and incredibly easy to use. Mere mortals can sit down and be productive in a matter of minutes.
Contraqer is collaborative: We believe procurement should be coordinated, across teams and across companies. With Contraqer, you can leverage vendor ratings, product ratings, average price information, and group purchasing to get the best pricing and service from vendors.
Absolutely! That is actually one of several ways that Contraqer pays for itself.
Does this sound familiar? A bill arrives for maintenance. Nobody is sure what it is for or whether or not you should pay it. But everyone is worried that something will break and you won’t be able to get the support you need. So you pay it.
Nobody wants to admit that that happens, but it does even in the best run businesses. There is just too much to track and not enough tools with which to track it. That is until now with Contraqer.
Contraqer allows you to manage all of your support contracts so you can verify payment of the associated maintenance. If you avoid paying one of those bills each year, Contraqer pays for itself.
Sure thing! There are 6 main ways that Contraqer pays for itself:
1. As mentioned previously, Contraqer helps you avoid paying for maintenance that you don’t need.
2. Contraqer saves a lot of time. We have automated just about everything in the procurement process. What we cannot automate, we will do for you. This can save you weeks of time and hassle.
3. When creating an RFQ or PO, Contraqer shows you what you already own so that you can avoid buying something you’ve already purchased.
4. When evaluating Quotes, we show you the average price our clients pay for each item. This will give you an idea of whether or not you have negotiating room.
5. With our group purchasing features, you can pool your purchasing with other companies to get volume discounts.
6. You can also save time during budget season with the Contraqer budget module. With the click of a button, Contraqer will give you a spreadsheet with a first cut budget by month for software, hardware, and service purchases as well as your expected maintenance costs.
Yes! We can use spreadsheets or optical character recognition (OCR) to upload your data into Contraqer.
If you use Contraqer to manage your procurement process, all of the information will automatically be recorded in Contraqer.
