Simple System: The platform for indirect procurement

simple system has been optimising the procurement outlay for C-items since it was founded in 2000; it has done this by pooling the ranges of over 700 suppliers on one platform.

Through the range and delivery expertise of all suppliers, the connection to your materials management system and the expert consultation, you can optimise your procurement processes and reduce process costs.
