Your Spend Management processes do not operate in isolation, they work hand-in-hand with your core financial management systems. They may also work in conjunction with key operational systems and, increasingly, they exchange information with your suppliers and their systems as well. Any true Spend Management suite therefore relies on close integration.
However, integration can be challenging for those that don’t understand, or have experience of, those various platforms and systems. At Touchstone, we draw on 35 years of solid experience of deploying Financial Management systems such as Infor SunSystems, Dynamics GP, NAV, AX, and more recently D365.
We combine that with our specialist knowledge of Spend Management platforms to ensure we completely understand the full end-to-end flow of data and information that underpins all the core purchasing and procurement processes. That’s why we are considered integration experts as much as Procurement specialists. The Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) and Source-to-Contract (S2C) solutions, as part of a broad Spend Management suite, are already tightly integrated with each other but also with the most popular ERP and Financial Management systems, as well as with a wide range of industry-specific and special-purpose operational systems. Our solutions can be integrated with limitless types of software applications from financial/ERP, to Facilities Management, HR, Property Management and Works Order systems.
Our solutions are Finance-system agnostic and ideally suited to deploying as an umbrella platform across multiple ERP systems where information is otherwise in siloes. Integrating each of these systems with our universal Spend Management platform brings uniformity, consistency and visibility across the whole enterprise.
