Procurement workflows, being particularly susceptible to random and chaotic elements, face numerous challenges like difficulties in supplier communication, delays in approvals, fluctuating prices, dynamic procurement regulations, effective contract management, seamless integration, and more.

The degree of flexibility within your procurement infrastructure directly correlates with its ability to adapt to present, future, and niche or outlier requirements. Herein lies the relevance of “composability,” where procurement systems are built by combining or rearranging various modules to suit specific requirements.

There are so many business cases where we need to streamline existing manual processes to function in line with our newly digitized system. Zycus Appxtend simplifies procurement automation with ease. With Appxtend all your business processes can be simplified and automated.
