Every organisation is different, and in order to make sure that you gain the expected benefit from DealTrack we undertake our Discovery stage.
During Discovery we look to understand how supplier agreements are drafted, approved and executed in your business. We understand the roles and relationships between the business functions involved — typically purchasing and finance but often including category management and sales.
We also seek to understand the types of deals that you enter into with your suppliers, usually looking at the most complex deal types. DealTrack has a comprehensive set of deal mechanisms built in, and we assess the fit between the standard library and your deals.
The Discovery stage takes between half a day and two days depending on the size and complexity of your organisation. Once we have undertaken the Discovery stage we can assess whether it would be possible to deploy DealTrack using pure configuration, or whether Consultancy is required. This will usually depend on the complexity of requirements and the level of integration required with other business systems.
