HD Supply’s previous contract management vendor was going through corporate changes, and the company was looking for a new solution. The new system has to be user-friendly, easy to install and maintain.
- Time savings and repeatable, workflow driven qualities were crucial
- Required the ability to manage more than 8,000 contracts company-wide
- Needed to be used by main organization plus 10 lines of business that maintained their own budgets, vendors and data centers
- System had to be adaptable for users who were accustomed to previous system
- Had to accommodate the on-boarding process for both their IT and indirect business models
