Purchase management

Improving asset availability and controlling costs

Through our purchase management services, we help clients improve their asset availability and reduce their maintenance and distribution costs. We also assist in controlling the cost of the goods ordered, regulating inventory levels and building strong relationships with suppliers.

Our purchase management services cover all industries and encompass a wide range of technology areas, including cloud, big data analytics, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), cybersecurity and outsourcing.

Representative examples of our purchase management work follows.

  • Finance, accounting and procurement: Our e-procurement services enable the State of Virginia to manage end-to-end workflows among agencies and suppliers, significantly opening up competition and delivering annual savings of more than $40 million. Today, the CGI Advantage® enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution is also helping the City of Los Angeles enhance its procurement and financial management operations. We also provide a full accounting service on our own platform, X2R, to the oil and gas industry, which includes complex revenue and cost allocation for production activities across multiple stakeholders.

In addition, CGI provides a revenue allocation and property management service for trust companies that deliver wealth management services to landowners. This service includes the management of complex lease documentation. We also provide full scope finance and accounting services to a multinational postal service company.

  • Scanning and imaging: CGI runs scanning and imaging services in multiple countries, processing 185 million documents annually. In Sweden, for example, we receive and scan high volume documents, such as delivery notes for major distribution companies, and enter the data into the companies’ ERP systems using optical character recognition (OCR) technology.
