Case Study

Constructec

Construtec, a firm specialized in Engineering Consultancy and Civil Construction Projects, automates Purchasing Management with the AuraPortal BPM Suite.

About Constructec & the Project

The implementation of the AuraPortal BPM Suite, carried out by the consultancy firm BPM-LAT, allowed for the automation, orchestration and centralization of Constructec’s purchases. This gave the company a greater control of expenses, a reduction in the construction sites’ administrative workload, better supplier administration, economy of scale, management and control of accounts, information fluidity and consistency, precise ERP integration, increased operational capability and reports and construction committees to improve productivity.

The Challenge

According to Guillermo Enrique Salcedo Mora, Director of Constructec S.A., the biggest problem they had was the lack of control over how their purchases were realized. This posed a major obstacle to their expansion, as in general, purchasing processes comprise 90% of all expenditures in most engineering firms.

The Solution

Following the implementation of the first version of the purchasing process, purchases continued to be made in the same way as before, however all the processes were now sent to the central office for approval. After making some important improvements, the management saw the possibility of centralizing the operation, gaining profit margin due to the economy of scale, better management of suppliers and of the quote and supplier selection task.

Chain of continuous control and monitoring

Which enables the complete control of this important process and provides an excellent delivery service for the construction sites.

Mobility

The on-site construction workers, who often have limited internet access, are kept informed of the progress of their purchase requests via emails which they receive on their mobile devices, allowing them to plan their activities better.
