M.V. Jooste, C. de W. Van Schoor

Abstract


ENGLISH ABSTRACT: e-Procurement is a sound solution for companies to initiate e-business initiatives since it promises several distinct benefits, such as process cost and lead time reduction, improving strategic sourcing of commodities and enabling companies to negotiate better prices. Procurement is a broad term that touches on internal and external aspects of the company, complicating the decision to choose the most suitable e-procurement solution. An evaluation framework is proposed to assist in evaluating the susceptibility of a companys products to e-procurement and choosing the most suitable e-procurement solution.

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: e-Verkryging is n goeie beginpunt vir maatskappye om hulle aan e-besigheid bloot te stel aangesien dit verskeie voordele soos proseskoste en leitydvermindering, verbetering van strategiese aanskaffing van produkte en die vermoom beter pryse met verskaffers te onderhandel, beloof. Verkryging is n breterm wat heelwat aspekte binne en buite die onderneming behels. Dit bemoeilik die besluit om die mees geskikte e-verkryging-oplossing te kies. n Evalueringsraamwerk word voorgestel ter ondersteuning van die evaluering van die ontvanklikheid van n onderneming se produkte vir e-verkryging en die keuse van die mees geskikte e-verkrygingoplossing.
