Siderforgerossi Group Spa, was born from the fusion of two historical Vicenza companies, Siderforge Spa and Forgerossi Spa. It’s a company specialized in the production of high-performance steel parts for gas pipelines, oil industry, wind and earthmoving machinery. Today it has 1100 employees, 6 Italian factory and one in Bangalore, India.

The time spent by the purchasing office of Siderforgerossi for the purchasing requests and RFQs management was consistent, since the process was not engineered.

First, offers were uploaded semi-manually: operators acquired them from suppliers via e-mail or paper. Second, they uploaded offers to the IT company system. Comparisons were then carried out in an unstructured way: they printed the various quotes and the time taken to evaluate the proposals was always higher than expected.

So, the needs were:

  • automate the creation and sending process of RFQs to suppliers
  • improving the offers uploading system from the suppliers
  • have greater control of purchasing requests and RFQs, improving monitoring of ongoing requests
  • managing reminders to suppliers.

The decision was to set up a web service for the uploading of offers, choosing our Document Management System Globe.

By using a wizard, suppliers can upload individual offers directly into the Globe system , interacting with Siderforgerossi’s ERP.

In this light, RFQs and purchase requests become part of the flows and processes governed by the central system.

The main advantage is a great time saving in the offers uploading.

Furthermore, an added value was certainly given by the implementation of the instrument, which allows quickly comparisons between received offers, but always in a weighted and effective way.

The developed technology allows to build a system for the customer that involves from the beginning also the supplier in the management procedures of purchasing requests and RFQs, in order to obtain common savings: less time spent uploading and evaluating the offers, less time waiting for responses.
