Conrad Electronic has offered B2B customers in the areas of maintenance, repair and operation (MRO) the opportunity to source products and services electronically, saving time and money, increasing efficiency, transparency and productivity for some time. Customers include government departments, research and development, education, as well as makers.
To further optimise the electronic procurement process, the B2B distributor provides business customers with the entire catalogue program or catalogues tailored to the individual needs of the customer in digital form, with different classification and export formats (all standard versions of eClass and UNSPSC and BMEcat 1.2, CSV, CIF and Excel).
Conrad’s eProcurement services comprise the Open Catalogue Interface (OCI) webshop, electronic catalogues (such as BMECat) and Conrad’s proprietary electronic procurement solution, Conrad Smart Procure (CSP).
Using the eProcurement services, including a powerful product search and around 800,000 business products with detailed product descriptions, customers can optimise and simplify their procurement process, saving time and money.
Access to the Conrad assortment or individual ranges with customer-specific pricing, is available 24/7 via the OCI webshop and CSP, including availability information in real-time.
This fully maximises the flexibility and allows for autonomous sourcing at any time.
Individual customer support is offered by experts from Conrad. This includes advice on individual eProc solutions, a targeted implementation tailored to the customer’s needs and support from a local Conrad representative.
“Business customers who want to capture their orders and purchasing behaviourat a glance and optimise their purchasing processes are in the right place when using our electronic procurement solution Conrad Smart Procure. Especially adapted to customerneeds, CSP is the easy-to-use and free solution for purchasing that provides permanent access to the entire Conrad product range, including real-time availability and products,” explains Sven Wachtel, Senior Director B2B Sales & eBusiness at Conrad Electronic.
Conrad Smart Procure is aimed primarily at small and medium-sized companies with up to 200 employees without their own eProcurement system, who often order small to medium volumes. While, Conrad’s OCI or eCatalogue solutions are intended for medium-sized and large companies with more than 200 employees and existing eProcurement systems or service providers.
