EFFICIENCY THAT DRIVES STRATEGIC
PURCHASING WITH EACH TRANSACTION
Solutions to Your Purchasing Challenges
Control Rogue Spending: Utilize advanced permissions and controls to maintain authorized users, establish individual employee purchase limits, and customize an approval workflow to avoid non-compliant spending. As an administrator, you can create hard-locked budgets with dollar limits per order or time period.
Drive Contract Compliance: Leverage a full P2P integration between your procurement system and ours. Directly access a custom catalog of contract-compliant Fastenal products. And utilize filters and custom messaging to gravitate users to strategic purchases.
The traditional e-commerce model is narrowly focused on efficient transactions – making it easy to buy. But in the B2B purchasing environment, it must be balanced with effectiveness. After all, if a purchase is non-compliant, off-contract, or redundant, the efficiency of the transaction is irrelevant. Our goal is to help you realize a deeper value – an efficient process, but one that drives your strategic purchasing goals with each transaction.
