Mota-Engil

Maximizing performance.

About the company

As one of Portugal’s biggest companies (it’s listed on the stock exchange), Mota-Engil operates in a variety of areas, most notably construction.

They have worked with VORTAL since the beginning, believing in the power of online procurement solutions to overcome barriers and combat inefficiencies in the supply system.

Objectives

Mota-Engil wanted to modernise their purchasing process, reorganize the team and inject some much needed entrepreneurial spirit into the department. They were ready to meet new suppliers, enlarge their potential base and increase the transparency of all relationships.

By buying electronically, Mota-Engil were able to achieve effective price reductions versus the traditional purchasing process. 2% savings were made on subcontracts, making a positive difference to the bottom life.

By optimizing the supply process, VORTAL were able to significantly decrease the administrative workload, saving Mota-Engil time and money when making market consultations and loading bids. 

Meta-Engil worked with VORTAL to raise awareness amongst supplier companies, stimulating and encouraging the correct use of the platform. As a result they created a dynamic market of loyal suppliers.

What else?

Apart from centralising the purchasing process, Mota-Engil wanted to ensure that the company’s ERP system was fully integrated with VORTAL. Achieving this led to a significant decrease in workload and errors, as there was no need to load orders into SAP manually. Which meant…more money and time saved!
