The Kenya Pipeline Company has completed the migration of its manual procurement to a new digital platform.

According to the company’s managing director, Joe Sang, the Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) platform was an online e-procurement forum through which the Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) would automate its entire procurement process.

“SRM will accelerate the procure-to-pay processes by automating, simplifying, and centralising the procure-to-pay process flow,” said Mr Sang in a statement.

He added that the automation process began late last year when the contract was awarded to SAP (East Africa), a German multinational software corporation that makes enterprise software.

“The new platform will put the KPC at par with its peers who are already using the e-procurement platform which has allowed their finance and procurement departments to streamline their processes,” said Sang.
