Gartner Glossary


E-procurement applications support indirect spending by giving casual users (i.e., employees who are not procurement professionals) a self-service solution for requisitioning and ordering goods and services. Although e-procurement solutions are geared toward indirect spending management by enabling individuals to initiate the requisition process and select purchases, they are occasionally configured for direct materials procurement, when plan-driven inventory replenishment isn’t practical.
