LAKE today announced that Coleg Llandrillo is the latest college to implement the Proactis purchase-to-pay solution from LAKE. Proactis was selected for its reporting flexibility, ease-of-use and proven integration with Infor SunSystems.
Coleg Llandrillo is the largest education and training providers in North Wales and amongst the top colleges in the UK. The college operates across four campuses and an additional four learning centres.
The selection of a new system was driven by the need for a more efficient system of purchasing combined with improved visibility of purchasing commitments.
Head of Finance for the college explains:
"We were aware of the need to make our systems more efficient and quicker. And we were also aware that e-procurement solutions were being taken up by other colleges... Our current system is a very slow process which starts with a manually written requisition that then needs a number of authority signatories before it can be turned in to an order and posted to the supplier...
.. We wanted to increase the visibility of our purchasing process. It was one of the things we looked at in quite some detail...
.. Our reasons for selecting Proactis were, firstly, it gave us more in terms of reporting and, secondly, Proactis has a more user-friendly design. It seems far easier for the users to look at and, more importantly, use...
.. We took up references from other colleges that had used LAKE and Proactis before and they provided glowing references."
