Hubwoo’s Catalog Management solution allows buyers to find goods and services in centralized, pre-approved supplier catalogs and place orders through an intuitive, one-stop purchasing platform.

As the lynchpin to a successful source-to-pay process, catalog management needs to be at the forefront of any procurement organization’s process improvement efforts, in order to ensure maximum savings potential is achieved.

One place to present all materials & services contract information to your end-users, which are provided from various sources like supplier maintained catalogs, small business catalogs, automated catalogs populated by your stock or ERP system, contracts, supplier hosted catalogs, forms and request for quotes.

Common Challenges:

  • User gets lost in different processes and access points
  • High percentage of free text requests (34% industry average) results in manual
  • process for category managers (inecient and costly)
  • Contracted savings based on sourcing events don’t get realized due to missing contract enablement for requestors
  • High effort for internal resources to create and maintain catalogs
  • Low number of enabled catalogs, e.g. 10-30 catalogs, 10% of catalogable spend
  • Low transparency of spend, categories and suppliers.
