Many organisations have an ad hoc approach for procuring products and services. It can be a challenge for an employee or manager to navigate unfamiliar processes and guidelines, and they often struggle to understand:
When policies are available they are not always clear or readily understood by the user. This informal approach results in wasted time and resources from legal and procurement teams who are faced with reinventing a process for each transaction whilst trying to minimise risk exposures.
The answer is Engo’s procurement guide, The Universe. Powered by Lawcadia’s technology and the process efficiency of legal operations consultancy Engo, the Engo Universe helps everyone in an organisation easily identify, manage and comply with procurement processes.
When someone in the organisation wants to procure a product or service, they simply access a link on their intranet, automatically launching Lawcadia with The Universe instantly accessible. The user is provided easy to navigate options to help them identify what they are buying, and within seconds they know exactly what process to follow.
Engo’s consulting process involves collaboration with the commercial, procurement and legal teams, co-developing an easy-to-use procurement guide – The Universe – providing a comprehensive internal resource for procuring products and services. The Universe focuses on self-service for low value/risk matters, considers the risk appetite of the organisation, and pre-determines a course of action for each category.
