eValua Case Study: The University of Sydney
eVALUA is an Australian-based company providing strategic online procurement services and applications for mining, utilities, defence, universities and government.
Strategic procurement applications offered by eVALUA provide improved productivity for your mining business and better buying outcomes that focus on reducing risk and improving value for money decisions.
By removing paper from the process, standardising the sourcing process and structuring the review methodology, procurement groups can now focus on working toward better buying outcomes with their internal customers rather than spending time and effort on simply managing the process.
eVALUA’s online Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions improve corporate governance, reduce risk and save money on all procurement projects, from low value purchases through to strategic investments in major assets and mining equipment.
The company realises that getting value for money in ‘low-risk commodity type purchases is a key consideration for clients. And eVALUA is equally aware that a thorough evaluation process is needed when making bigger purchasing decisions.
