TECSYS Announces Self-Service Requisition Management System (RMS)

ProMat 2013, January 21, 2013—TECSYS Inc. (TSX: TCS), an industry-leading supply chain management software company, announced today the release of its Requisition Management System (RMS); a web-based and flexible requisition management solution that allows businesses to automate and manage their purchase requisitions processes for supplies and services, executing each through the approval, appropriation and procurement workflows to streamline the purchasing process, improve service to users and lower supply spend.

TECSYS' RMS is an intuitive, user-friendly self-service requisition management solution that enables hundreds of users across an enterprise to quickly and easily initiate, process and track purchase requisitions for stock and non-stock items with little or no interventions from purchasing agents. TECSYS' RMS provides the ability to configure multiple types of requisition submissions; each uniquely defined based on supply source, approval structure, appropriation assignment as well as tracking and automation of email notifications with full edit capabilities for approvers and buyers.

As a self-service facility, TECSYS' RMS is very intuitive and users require no training. It speeds up the requisition and appropriation process, eliminating paper trails, streamlining the purchasing process, accelerating order times, improving fill rates, often reducing inventory levels due to overstocking and ultimately lowering the total supply chain spend costs.

TECSYS' Vice-President of Marketing & Business Development, Robert Colosino, commented: "Inherent in every supply chain organization is the significant number of purchase requisition transactions involved for stock, and more so, for non-stock items to support the organization's business. Distributors, hospitals, educational organizations, utilities and government bodies waste hundreds of hours in the creation, processing and execution of purchase requisitions through non-automated and user unfriendly technology or paper-based processes. Recognizing this essential need in the market, we have put to work our decades of experience working with a variety businesses to create TECSYS' RMS. It is based on our visionary technology platform that is known for its collaborative visibility attributes, bringing high values that businesses appreciate most, both from a technological and business processes perspectives."

TECSYS' RMS major capabilities include:

  • Requisition Management: enables businesses to manage purchase requisitions, processing each through the approval, appropriation and procurement process.
  • Requisition Approvals: Through electronic approvals processes, TECSYS' RMS addresses the many variables associated with the approval processes no matter how complex they are.
  • Procurement Management: TECSYS' RMS Procurement capability provides the flexibility required to fully manage and process a requisition from request to delivery. Buyers have the flexibility to modify supply sources and/or items to take advantage of vendor promotions, discounts and volume pricing incentives.
  • Appropriation Management: Answers to the many questions associated with a requisition process such as "when was it approved", "for what period", "what was it for", "what budget should it be applied to" and more. TECSYS' RMS ties budget to the requisition and allows multiple appropriation codes to be applied to a single entry.
  • Email Notification: TECSYS' RMS offers automated email notification, triggered when a request is submitted. Hassle free, providing collaborative hyperlinks directly to the requisition and requires no intervention from the requester.
  • Accessible anytime, anywhere: TECSYS' RMS can be accessed from any browser-based device, from anywhere at any time. The system is intelligent, extensible and as easy-to-use as a browser. It is adaptable to users' environments, and is sensitive to each individual's personal needs.
