What is Proqur?

Proqur is a streamlined procurement platform designed for small and medium sized engineering firms and suppliers. It is mainly, but not only, employed in the mechanical and industrial engineering fields. The company is located in Silver Spring, United States.

The software keeps track of all the information and centralizes it on one location.

Average Rating -

The rating of Proqur is 2.8 stars out of 5. The rating is based on ITQlick expert review.

Typical Customers

Proqur is best for small and medium sized manufacturing and engineering companies in automotive, construction, industrial and aerospace manufacturing equipment. The software is also used frequently in medical manufacturing sectors.

Businesses looking to streamline their procurement processes and supply chain can benefit from this Proqur.

Features

Other than centralizing all the information at one platform, Proqur also allows a more robust and reliable communication and collaboration between the team members. One of the most important features of Proqur is the role-based task assignments. Any member can log in and check the status of others independently. This results in a significant decrease in calls and emails, resulting in enhanced efficiency.

Proqur also helps to efficiently create and manage the manufacturing orders for your projects. Instead of scattered order information in the form of spread sheets, notes and emails, Proqur collects all the notes and conversations at a single platform.

One of the most important features of Proqur is the order documentation. This documentation keeps track of all the problems and their solutions in the previous projects so that they are not repeated in the future. This documentation also helps reduce the undesired incidents and thus increases the operational efficiency. Proqur tracks the supplier delays, manufacturing quality, order costs and problem records. It provides actionable data for the improvement of procurement and transparency.

Proqur 5 Pros

  • Proqur allows the monitoring and assessment of each and every phase of procurement process. This includes order costs, supplier delays and manufacturing quality.
  • The important feature of problem documentation allows you to recognize any undesired trends causing bottlenecks in the production process and remove them.
  • The feature of incident documentation allows swift creation of problem record the moment it is encountered.
  • Proqur is web browser based which makes it accessible anywhere if the internet is available.
  • Proqur allows the creation and tracking of RFQs and POs for improved teamwork.

Proqur 2 Cons

  • The main focus of Proqur is on successful procurement execution and it offers little assistance for other important aspects of business such as inventory management, e-commerce and CRM.
  • The software fails to efficiently meet the needs of large businesses and focuses mainly on small and medium sized projects.

Competitors & Alternatives

The major competitors for Proqur are Plex Procure to Pay and Industrios Purchasing.

Plex Procure to Pay is part of the Plex Manufacturing system which is available as a cloud based service. Its features include supplier management, material quality management, as well as inventory monitoring. The module is also fully integrated with material requirements planning and provides portals for suppliers to seek requirements, place bids and handle deliveries. Additionally there is also financial management to handle orders, invoicing and payment requirements.

Proqur on the other hand is a specialized solution that deals only with procurement and quality management in the manufacturing industry. The product integrates product engineering for requirements, purchasing for bid management and selection, and quality inspections for material and product deliveries. Additionally there are dashboards to monitor the status of the procurement process, as well as individual order fulfillment along with financial KPIs to track procurement costs against capital budgets.

Then there is Industrios Purchasing which is part of an enterprise manufacturing solution which can be integrated with production and financials. It however includes a planning workbench to receive requirements and plan procurement in order to optimize auctions and product deliverables. There is also a classification system for all procurement activities based on functional, material as well as criticality requirements to ensure they are addressed in the right timeframes.

While Proqur does not address these features currently, the product is available as a cloud based service. Additionally the product helps purchasing departments track order status with an automated alerting system to advise when milestones are reached, or supplier information needs to be obtained.
