Optimisation in companies, whether large or small, is provided in particular by cutting-edge mobility technology. Thanks to the interconnection developed among operators, employees, offices and headquarters, every activity within the company is more efficient. No more waste of time or disorganization, as each operator knows exactly what to do during the day and can communicate with colleagues in a timely manner to carry out the work efficiently and smoothly.
The mobile device is therefore a tool of crucial importance for companies, because it leads to an increase in corporate efficiency, thanks to the reduction of costs and the increase in the quality of the product/service offered. However, acquiring the technology to obtain a significant improvement is not at all easy, especially if the company has branches located in different countries around the world. For this reason there is YouProcurement, the YouCo solution specific for managing mobile devices and their procurement.
The Client who relied on the services of YouCo, for managing the whole vital process of the company devices, is a first level multinational company operating in the ’Oil&Gas sector. With headquarters in Italy and branch offices located in more than 40 countries, the Client decided to choose the YouProcurement solution to manage in a timely manner the procurement of company devices at every stage: from purchase, delivery, up to after-sales support. The objective was to optimize order and delivery times, and to outsource all supply operations outside the company.
How did YouProcurement improve the process of managing the Client’s corporate devices?
Technological innovation has always been the best solution to increase corporate efficiency. The Customer chose this way and decided to equip its operators and contractors with cutting-edge devices, able to provide them with the specific support to carry out their daily tasks. In order to ensure that everyone within the company were able to benefit from mobile devices optimized for work, the Client relied on the YouProcurement solution designed by YouCo.
This solution is based on the specific B2B platform. The portal allows the company to fully manage the life cycle of the device, from procurement to disposal. The departments involved, to achieve greater efficiency, were three: the Admin or Global IT Manager, which represents the company’s headquarters, Procurement Manager who refers to the subsidiary, and Tech Partner, in this case YouCo itself, which provides all the technological support.
Thanks to the subdivision into roles, the management of the devices is more organized and does not allow third parties to be involved. The departments involved in the purchase or operational rental activities are therefore few and qualified, which prevents misunderstandings and mistakes. Through the platform developed by YouCo, the Global IT Manager is able to assess the level of investment made – or to be made – on each of the branch offices located worldwide, thus receiving a clear overview of the costs related to innovation. The Procurement Manager, on the other hand, is responsible for entering pre-orders and orders: the portal, which can be accessed via smart-phone, tablet and computer, provides a preloaded catalogue from which it is possible to choose the products best suited to the needs of the company. In addition, through the on-line order with YouProcurement the management and approval times are significantly shortened.
The essential part of this solution, however, is managed by the technological partner. YouCo, which is the Tech Partner, in fact, provides the devices and accessories, as well as a complete service including:
- SIM and device delivery;
- Device testing;
- Fault, theft and loss management;
- Warehouse (located at the main logistics centers);
- Integrated assistance for any type of issue, in addition to that already provided by the vendor.
Thanks to this solution, the Client did not have to deal directly with the procurement of the company’s mobile devices, but entrusted the task to the technology partner, which is YouCo. Through the on-line platform, it was able to centrally manage and organize the entire life cycle of the devices (assignment, replacement, repair, warranty service management, disposal, etc.) and was able to take advantage of YouCo’s expertise.
