think responded with SwitchOn+, a user friendly SAAS based platform that provides a complete ‘Purchase to Pay’ (P2P) solution. Switch On has integrated with RMIT’s finance system (SAP) and has streamlined every aspect of RMIT’s procure to pay process.
SwitchOn+ allows suppliers to register easily and transact with many customers. This makes SwitchOn+ more attractive to suppliers than other procure to pay solutions.
All products within SwitchOn catalogues are classified according to the UNSPSC taxonomy Level 4. This enables workflow based on product type and provides pre-cleansed data for reporting, spend analysis and benchmarking.
Being at the forefront of innovation, RMIT is always on the lookout for new and exciting ways to improve our processes. It was a global search, and given this, we were surprised to find one of the top solutions out there, right here in Victoria.
Once, innovation in procurement was just about reducing costs, now technology is disrupting this and is allowing companies to drive further efficiencies in the effort involved in acquiring goods and the time to delivery.
think’s platform delivers on this trend.
think’s platform not only enables us to get the most out of our budget but ensures we get the best resources for our facility and students in the most timely manner possible.”
