Procurement team often needs to refer to volumes of documents regarding contract status, taxation, policies, preferred supplier, order status, shipment, delivery and payment, etc. Besides, several low-value tasks like attending user queries, double checking details in the purchase orders, etc., consume a significant amount of time, impacting overall productivity.
Time-consuming processes like contract management, third-party risk management, category management and supplier management are ideal for automation.
BotCore’s procurement bots bring the power of chatbots and RPA together to deliver both front-end and back-end automation.
While chatbots can help capture user information, provide personalized recommendations and simplify the buying process, RPA, upon users’ request via chatbot, can mimic human actions, interact with applications, and perform mundane tasks.
The AI-powered bot possessing both RPA and Conversational AI capabilities verifies the invoices against the order and reports errors. It also smoothens the procurement process by understanding the user's preferences and the company’s guidelines and guiding actions accordingly.
Powered by NLP and machine learning, our procurement bots can understand the context of the interaction and guide customers through the purchase process. They can make recommendations on purchase strategy, product availability, supply chain etc.
Procurement bots can be an effective first-line support for answering a large number of repeated user queries. In case of a complex question, the bot hands over the conversation to a live agent.
Procurement executives can converse with the bots on their preferred communication channels like SMS, Skype for Business, Skype, Slack, Cortana, etc. both on desktop and mobile devices.
Round the clock availability is facilitating users to get instant information on purchases, orders, contract details, payment terms, Shipment status, invoices etc.
Manual contract review is a time consuming process in contract management. A procurement bot can review contracts and identify the nonstandard terms and conditions. Reviewers can use this information in supplier negotiation.
A through supplier risk analysis may not always be possible for companies with limited resources. Procurement bots can carry out supply due diligence across various risk categories in a fraction of time.
Supplier onboarding processes are repetitive and lengthy. Procurement bots can automate manual tasks like background checks, document reviews, and follow ups for missing documents.
