VP of Procurement
“Cost can be lowered only so much by traditional procurement levers.”
Previous procurement practices employed by Estrella revolved around analyzing the supply chain and directing suppliers to identify opportunities to consolidate spend, yet these did very little to influence the internal process. They partnered up with Prokuria to break their reliance on traditional processes such as emails, spreadsheets, and phone calls, and optimize their operations with improved analytical systems. They also aimed to create an efficient ecosystem of communication and coordination with third-party suppliers.
By using Prokuria, Estrella Pharmaceuticals managed to build a procurement process above the traditional one it was already implementing. By digitizing and automating its workflows, the company was able to move away from Excel, increasing its spend visibility, transact seamlessly with suppliers, drive costs down, and break down information silos to uncover emerging trends and improve supply chain agility.
