Software as a Service (Saas), the industry standard, is a compelling option for Vendor Management System (VMS), offering significant benefits to organizations. However, it is vital to evaluate the differences between VMS SaaS vendors to avoid any long-term quality, innovation and change management issues. We recommend you look beyond the typical architectural concerns – especially if your organization is more familiar with traditional, on-premise software deployment – to capabilities that will drive success. You’ll discover that we are uniquely positioned to deliver for your organization.
The SaaS model of software delivery, whereby software and data are hosted externally and delivered over the Internet provides many benefits including faster implementation, more frequent enhancements and overall reduced cost of ownership. Factoring in the current reality of minimal available IT bandwidth, combined with Procurement and HR’s need for increased cost savings, selecting a SaaS VMS is likely the only viable option.
Be more flexible.
Each business domain is built to accommodate the unique needs of our current and future clients. By leveraging configuration, we’re able to reduce the amount of code required to support your organization’s existing business processes and cut down on the time to implement.
Your organizational processes around procurement, staff augmentation, outsourced services and projects can be mapped directly to steps within key workflow activities and integrated with your enterprise systems such as popular ERP, identity management and invoicing/remittance systems.
We provide full support for international languages, currencies and business rules with prebuilt localization for numerous countries and the ability to quickly and easily add new country support.
Beeline is not an out-of-the-box application – we’re an outside-the-box application. Thanks to the make-up of our technology, we are able to accommodate everything from a simple request like changing a specific word within the application to applying unique tax logic to provinces within specific countries.
Be more secure.
Your data is our number one priority. By housing each client’s individual application within a separate database, we are able to ensure that it is physically impossible to for their data to be crossed or compromised. Our clients’ applications, databases and integrations are insulated from other client implementations. Servers, network and storage solutions are hosted in a tier IV datacenter offering top of the line redundancy and security across all capabilities. A dedicated information security and privacy team stays on top of continuously evolving industry best practices and implements those into the Beeline organization. Robust identity management ensures the right people have access to the right information at the right time. In addition, our internal staff adheres to a rigorous SAS 70 audit process.
Be more effective.
Our web and database environments are hosted in clustered configurations. This ensures faster application response and improves uptime. Our development process leverages both automated regression testing and application load testing to ensure a higher level of quality and performance over time.
Be more agile.
We are constantly performing market analyses to ensure that the solutions we provide solve the problems our clients are facing. We provide continuous training for our technical staff to guarantee skills and exposure to technology is kept current and forward looking. Our software development uses an Agile framework to allow for rapid response to change in client and market demands. The use of Agile results in a highly collaborative environment where Product Management, Development and Quality Assurance work together closely and constantly to ensure the highest quality product is delivered frequently. In fact, we release software updates at least 10 times a year.
