Connecting Local Suppliers & External Procurement Services
Meplato maintains close and intensive relations with international top suppliers and focuses on strategic partnerships with the aim to ensure the broadest product range across all commodity groups within indirect procurement due to a perfect mix of selected suppliers. This combination, combined with our closed marketplace, non-public prices and transparency towards buyer and supplier is reflected in a low product price level for more than 23 million products.
Optionally, Meplato takes over the consolidation of any amount of national and international suppliers. This can be both existing contract suppliers with their own framework contracts as well as not catalog-integrated suppliers due to low volumes. Meplato is acting along existing KPIs & purchasing strategies and supports purchasers particularly in assortment gaps & potentials for optimization. Meplato as the single creditor is able to significantly increase the catalog based procurement along with a reduction of the number of creditors.
The order and settlement process through Meplato as a creditor is simple and transparent. After the provision of catalog contents the consumer is able to search seamlessly in the Mall and to assort shopping carts via the internal e-procurement system like SAP SRM or Wallmedien’s WPS. Meplato undertakes all stored operations with the respective supplier. Thereby, the entire invoice processing is directly and exclusively managed by Meplato as a creditor.
Meplato analyses price and delivery conditions on the basis of more than 170 million products and product variants and identifies optimisation and savings potentials. Purchase organisations are able to compare their key assortment to business line benchmarks, validate alternative suppliers and maintain watchlists, particularly for observable products.
Meplato supports you to find the “perfect match” between buyer and supplier. Based on the supplier integration strategy of the purchase organisation and the applied profile of the supplier, Meplato identifies and rates the scale integration according to individual determined company KPIs to ensure a running procurement process.
Purchase companies are capable to set direct requests to stored suppliers or per commodity group. Additionally, not found articles can be ordered via integrated local purchase service provider. Anytime it is evident, which supplier provides the selected article, for example labeled by supplier@mps.
Via Meplato, we were able to complement our product coverage systematically by new assortments in 6 European countries. Without any anchors, employees can find Meplato’s assortment directly via one search within the e-procurement system. A significant advantage concerning the user-acceptability.
