Nimblex Solution: Procurement & Contract Management

Challenge:

  • City of Ballarat was using a contract management solution which was rejected by internal users due to it being too inflexible and difficult to use with no email integration.
  • Managers were looking for a solution with a logical flow and flexibility, to shape around the areas where they felt needed greater emphasis, within their Contract Lifecycle Management Story.
  • Council was looking to implement a new solution within a short time frame.

 

Solution:

  • Nimblex configured a Procurement and Contract Management Solution tailored to the City of Ballarat's exact process and procedural needs.
  • The solution is easy to use, yet sophisticated enough to comply with all of the City of Ballarat's unique process and workflow requirements.
  • Nimblex managed to configure, implement the solution and train staff within 45 days.

 

Benefits:

  • Quick benefit realisation and continuity of contract management processes without major interruption of overall contract management processes.
  • A  that is being embraced and well received by managers throughout the City of Ballarat as a result of the platform’s user friendliness.
