Arcare Aged Care partners with ReadyTech to streamline procurement
Melbourne, 18 April 2023 - Arcare Aged Care, a provider of high-quality aged care services, has signed up to implement Ready Contracts (powered by Open Windows), a market-leading Source-to-Contract solution.
The implementation of the Source-to-Contract functionality will enable Arcare to streamline its procurement processes and improve efficiency, ultimately saving time and money. The software will allow Arcare to centralise its procurement activities, including the management of contracts and supplier relationships, ensuring that they have complete visibility over the entire procurement lifecycle.
Arcare joins a growing number of customers using Ready Contracts in the Health and Aged Care sector; including Micare Aged Care and Community Services, Goodwin Aged Care Services, Cabrini Health and St Vincent’s Health Australia.
“We were seeking more than just a contract management solution. Ready Contracts offered the ability to help us manage the full S2C process including Sourcing, Contract and Supplier Management as well as providing the ability to integrate with other internal critical systems,’’ said Satish Buddha, IT Project Lead at Arcare.
Arcare’s initial focus is on implementation of functionality to support and streamline its management of both Contract and Supplier Compliance. The longer-term plan includes integration with MS Dynamics financials and use of the full breath of Ready Contracts' Source-to-Contract functionality to automate procurement planning, through tendering, contract & supplier relationship management.
"Providing comprehensive and cost-effective solutions for the Aged and Health Care sector is extremely important to us - we are delighted to welcome Arcare Aged Care onto our platform,” said Adam McInnes, General Manager of Ready Contracts (powered by Open Windows).
Ready Contracts has a proven track record of delivering procurement software solutions to a range of industries. The company’s software solutions are designed to improve procurement processes and help organisations achieve better outcomes.
Arcare Procurement Manager, Warren Leo said: "Visibility of Supplier Compliance is extremely important for Aged Care providers therefore the inclusion of an online Supplier Portal that will assist us in streamlining the management of Supplier Insurances and Accreditations was a key factor in selecting Ready Contracts."
Ready Contracts (powered by Open Windows) is a wholly owned entity of ReadyTech, and was acquired by the ASX-listed technology company in 2021.
