Matsource is designed to help you streamline your material procurement, and delivers a range of time and money saving benefits. Using digital tools, you can optimise your purchasing for cost, speed of delivery or suitable payment terms depending on what’s most important for your business.
What’s more, by exploring all of the options available through the platform, you’ll set yourself up for success from day one. Here’s a few tips on how to get the most out of Matsource:
Set up different user profiles
Every procurement team is different. Depending on the size of your company, how many materials you’re buying in and how often you’re ordering, you’ll have refined your purchasing department to fit the bill – and you can replicate that internal structure through Matsource.
You can set up multiple users and give each individual the permissions they need. For example – if you want one member of staff to put in material requests but you’d prefer them not to handle payments, you can do so.
No matter what the structure of your firm is, Matsource can support you.
Add multiple addresses
You can add multiple delivery addresses through Matsource, and name them so that they’re instantly recognisable. There’s no limit on this, so even if you have sites all over the country, Matsource has got you covered.
When you put in a material request, you’ll be asked to choose which delivery address you want to use. This means that whenever a supplier offers you a quote, you know that they’re able to deliver to your chosen location.
Choose the best email address
Matsource is an ‘always on’ platform, and you can view your supplier quotes in real time as soon as they’re available. You’ll receive an email notification when your quote deadline passes or when all quotations for your products are received, so make sure those notifications are sent to an inbox you read regularly if you want to save as much time as possible.
If you’re not receiving email notifications, it’s worth checking your junk folder in case they’re being flagged by your email client.
