Clearwater, FL (July 13, 2012) Supply chain software developer Datex Corporation recently introduced a new software module to manage procurement. Developed with input from a major Canadian Engineering Procurement Construction Management (EPCM) firm, Datex FootPrint® WMS procurement module includes features specifically for EPCM professionals such as the ability to manage purchase order revisions, create and manage construction contracts and revisions, provide bid analysis and track assets and inventory. Datex FootPrint® WMS procurement module can help engineering consultants to facilitate solid procurement practices and procedures to ensure adherence with contract specifications for each construction management project they handle.
EPCM firms will now be able to provide added assurance to their clients regarding their ability to properly manage purchase orders, assets and contracts, develop project estimates, establish budget controls and manage both pre- and post- award contracting activities for construction & project management. Datex FootPrint® WMS can be used with a web portal to provide real time visibility and allows users to monitor the approval process, revisions and purchase orders to ensure critical cost control. When used properly, Datex FootPrint® WMS will confirm that the services and products are delivered according to the contract specifications, track assets and inventory and bulk material purchases.
“Companies seeking to reduce incidence of procurement fraud now have a new tool in their arsenal” explained Andy Armanious, Vice President of Development for Datex. “Both the clients and EPCM engineering consultants will benefit from increased safeguards and tracking mechanisms employed in the Datex FootPrint® WMS procurement system software.”
Other key features include the ability to manage construction cost planning and control; manage and monitor storage and transportation logistics of project equipment and materials from fabrication to project site, including serial numbers; and the ability manage and assign crucial project resources.
