Ever made a serious spending mistake and wish you could press a real-life-undo-button?

When we look at the purchase order systems used by these companies, it all starts to make sense.

Upon closer examination, a correlation between two key factors becomes evident. More than 80% of companies make spending mistakes annually and more than 70% don’t use an online PO system or ERP software. It stands to reason that more spending mistakes are made when using a paper based or Excel based PO system. This conclusion was easily drawn, but how exactly does a PO system help you control company spending?

The $83 Cup of Coffee

coffee_1Buying a customer a cup of coffee is a small token of appreciation. Even at $4.5 organically and responsibly grown, Ethiopian Blue Mountain brew seems like small beans. Pardon the pun.

Or maybe it isn’t so small. Depending on the business you are in. Lets say you work for FedEx which has a current Net Margin of 5.4%. That means for every dollar spent, they need to work to earn $18 in sales to make up for it. Put another way, if you are lucky enough to get FedEx to buy you a cup of coffee, it will cost them $83 in sales to make up for it.

If you are lucky enough, like Google or American Express, where margins are high, their cup of coffee will only cost $22.

So can you see why managing cost can have such a dramatic impact on company profitability? Procurementexpress.com is the fastest way to get company spending under control. Register for an account today.
