Pratis Electronic purchasing platform communicates with external systems through web services. It performs data exchange with 27 basic and 12 auxiliary services. Some of the services may be used for data transfer to the purchasing platform, and some for transfer of platform data to external systems. The technological infrastructure can be used flexibly and companies can benefit from integration services at any point they require.
Pratis is currently integrated with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) application in different brands used by 11 Buyer organizations; it has high system integration experience independent of application.
ERP Request Integration
This is the integration model established between purchase request applications used by the companies in purchase processes and the Pratis platform. In this model, purchase requests in the internal processes of companies, after final approval, can be integrated as instantaneous or periodically. Thus in negotiation creating process of companies, content information comes automatically from their request content and manual formation work load is eliminated.
ERP Order Integration
At the end of the negotiation process, orders consisting of offers from companies, if required, can be integrated with the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) module used by the company. This way, orders placed as a result of the negotiation (Offer Collection, Tender, Offer etc.) can be created automatically. Manual order placement is prevented for companies within their own system for frequently purchasing companies or multi-item jobs, and the information entered by supplier companies are automatically transferred into these orders and they are formed within seconds inside the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system used by the company. Thus time losses caused by manual entries are prevented.
ERP Offer Integration
Negotiation processes may be concluded in different ways due to the structure of the buyer organization. Pratis Offer Integration is based on creating the offers generated as a result of the negotiation with the buyer company (Offer Gathering, Tender, Offer etc.) inside the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. It is the ideal integration for structures that has offer module and/or technical approval inside their program. Thus these tables are automatically created in a short time inside the Offer Module within the structures used by buyer companies. Using this structure, technical approval and in-system offer creation is performed very quickly and documentation complexity is prevented with time saving and fully electronic transactions.
Pratis also integrates catalogs used by companies to external systems, as it not only performs spot purchasing processes, but also performs management of the catalog process uploaded to the system as a result of long term contracts. Thus, lists formed in the Catalog structure are integrated with supplier systems using specified criteria (Periodic, daily, contract period etc.). In this way, product changes, price changes, change rates can be automatically updated in the system. The company can track the position of its order cargo over the catalog and display supplier stock or select replacement products for products not in stock. Time losses from catalog preparation and updating as a result of contract can be prevented. In case they have the necessary infrastructure, the Buyer Companies can form the Purchase Orders created as a result of the orders placed from the Catalog, automatically in the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that they use.
The purchasing structures are closed structures, whether or not an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is used. These systems that companies use for their internal processes are difficult to open to the outside world or share with suppliers. Pratis Portal Integration, shares information used in the internal processes of companies, within the framework of authorization and approval (to be determined by the company) to relevant suppliers or users. In this way, the companies and users can reach information shared by the Company from Pratis screens or can take data from Pratis to their systems (web pages etc.).
