The BravoAdvantage Platform

Integrated Strategic Procurement Platform

Procurement doesn’t operate alone. It is part of a value chain that is responsible for delivering financial performance, protecting the brand and ensuring customer satisfaction. That is why your strategic procurement platform should also not operate alone. If procurement technology and processes are not fully integrated into the processes of the corporate value chain, then procurement can’t deliver and demonstrate its true value.

An integrated strategic procurement platform delivers:

BravoSolution strategic procurement software

 

Actionable insights: to drive & support strategic business decisions

Collaboration: to manage & nurture internal & external relationships

Process efficiency: by embedding procurement workflow into the entire value chain ecosystem

Cross-enterprise performance management: to anticipate new opportunities or avoid unexpected risk or disruptions

BravoAdvantage integrates every phase of the upstream and downstream procurement processes, while integrating into the rest of the business and across the entire value chain.

“Supplier at the Center” Foundation

At the core of the BravoAdvantage platform is its supplier at the center foundation that integrates supplier lifetime value throughout the entire procurement process. It is this foundation that enables procurement to have true end-to-end visibility and insight to make better business decisions at the time the decision needs to be made.

Built-in Social Collaboration

BravoAdvantage utilizes key aspects of social collaboration to simplify, improve, and humanize the communications and interactions that are critical to all procurement processes. Key features include:

Social_Icon_1Creating a Personal Experience – Customized dashboards, user controlled lists and self-service capabilities that enables users to inject their own personality directly into the solution by adding profile picture and other personal information

Social_Icon_2Communicate Beyond Simple Collaboration – BravoAdvantage facilitates communication between buyers and supplier by embedding messaging in every event. It also enables buyers to create team spaces and forums to discuss evolving topics in real time, ensuring critical communications are not lost

Social_Icon_3Procurement without Borders – Social procurement means geographically dispersed users are able to interact with one another at the point of demand – directly alongside where they are working on their events. BravoAdvantage brings procurement communities together which allow business users greater access to information about suppliers, but also benefits suppliers by lowering the communication barriers thus empowering them to consider process improvements or innovations
