We previously went through 46 individual steps between a project request and the issue of a purchase order. Now it's 14. We also wanted to update stock and inventory control; Up to that point, the IFM team had largely been using manual, paper-driven processes that involved lengthy approvals — around 45 days — to procure any new spare parts. Altogether, we were using over 70,000 sheets of paper each year, which resulted in high energy and printing costs.Praxis team routed IFM supply chain efforts through IBM Maximo Asset Management software, using the solution to oversee inventory management, replenishment and purchasing. They worked with us to digitize the entire contracts, procurement and inventory management process, while ensuring that we had full visibility into the process steps.This is one of the key milestone achieved timely, resulted into high quality deliverables, significant amount of paper saving. The achievement demonstrated the best practice which will certainly showcase it internally and externally by adopting collaborative team work. We should all feel proud about this positive transformation and advance digitalization which now has been achieved.
We have witness true collaboration and professional delivery from Praxis and our joint operation team on what has been a very complex delivery, in addition to accommodating process change, in the calendar along the way. Praxis has delivered what is going to be a step change in our procurement process and it is testament to the hard work and dedication they have all put in. With our Carillion Alawi hat on, we have our company values We Care, We Deliver, We Improve, We Achieve together, and we’d like to nominate Praxis team as a small token of recognition to celebrate the fact that you have lived these to the full.
