Control Spending with a Visible Budget, Online
The Silent Supervisor® is the registered trademark that describes an automatic and dynamic online spending budget displayed for a buyer to see ‘right at the point of ordering’. It dramatically reduces over-ordering.
The proprietary web technology was developed by Kenn Fischburg to help reduce spending automatically, online. A buyer will clearly see what their monthly spending budget is and what they have available.
Management will have a clear accounting of how each buyer is performing.
In fact, as an executive you don’t have to worry. Set up the annual spending budget at the beginning of the year and check a report to see how the procurement team is doing. At the end of the year you can expect to spend less in the aggregate than the previous year. That’s what counts.
This is a cornerstone of Lean Procurement.
