Utilising P2P Software to Drive Spend Culture – Aman Mann from Procurify
The Procuretech Podcast: Digital Procurement, Unwrapped
Larger organisations tend to use enterprise level ERP systems such as SAP and Oracle, neither of which are particularly user-friendly. In fact, the average person who only uses them to request, approve or receive goods and services will usually find them cumbersome to the point that they find ways around them.Organisations typically react to this by offering solutions such as punch-out catalogues and P-cards, or even third-party integrators and BPO to deal with tail spend.Smaller and medium-sized organisations either don't have an ERP system (particularly for rapidly scaling startups), or they have a sales / accounts-oriented solution like Xero, Sage or Netsuite.In all of these situations, there isn't really much opportunity to have visibility of requisition and order tracking, as well as what is being spent against which budget in a format easily visible to users and budget holders.My guest this week is the CEO of Canadian scale-up Procurify, who are making waves through their super user-friendly P2P software which facilitates a more visible "spend culture" in organisations through its smartphone app first technology and easy to user interface.How Well Designed P2P Software Can Lead to Improved Spend Awareness: Aman Mann from Procurify2:14Aman begins the interview by walking us through what he views as being a good corporate spend culture, and examples of where it can easily go wrong.5:47We explore the differences between a healthy corporate culture of spend transparency vs. a more controlling, top-down approach of strict spend control, and how the former can result in a much more autonomy and less bureaucracy.9:35Uncontrolled spend vs. transparent spend - what is the difference and what can cause the former vs. the latter?16:00We look into two examples: A rapidly growing company that has no ERP system vs. a well-established organisation that has a legacy ERP system in place that does not really cater well to procurement's needs. I ask Aman how Procurify's system can drive benefits and what time savings this typically provides.22:18What to do if you already have an existing, legacy ERP system in place? If this has a finance module, what options are there to use a P2P system such as Procurify that has been designed with procurement in mind when there is still a need to use legacy systems for accounts and invoice processing?25:56Simple P2P functions such as approvals of requisitions and POs and performing goods receipts have only fairly recently become commonplace via mobile app, whereas travel & expense software has had functionality to submit reports in an app for years. I ask for Aman's thoughts around why this has taken so long to catch up.29:27How Aman sees Procurify's product as just a tool which can help as an enabler of how organisations can succeed through company culture and mindset.How to connect with Aman:Procurify websiteHow to connect with James:James Meads Consulting websiteJames' LinkedIn profileBook a Call with JamesFollow The Procuretech Podcast on LinkedIn
Featured Guest: Aman Mann Founder of Procurify | Startup Showcase: Sapient Industries & PenPal Schools
On the show, Scott kicks off the Startup Showcase by talking with CEO of Sapient Industries, Sam Parks. The Sapient system is an enterprise deployment of smart sockets, using machine learning to detect the types of devices that are plugged in and eliminate energy waste resulting from human behavior. The system is capable of improving operational efficiency by reducing plug load, identifying redundant equipment, and optimizing space utilization. Next on the show Scott is joined with CEO of PenPal Schools, Joe Troyen. PenPal Schools connects over a quarter million students from 150 countries to learn together. Students collaborate through online projects ranging from human rights and the environment to fake news and robotics, all while practicing literacy, technology and social-emotional skills. On the latter half of the show, Scott is joined with our featured guest, the founder of Procurify, Aman Mann. Aman is a people-first leader, who has the magical ability to turn fear into excitement, and views obstacles as opportunities. He hates the word ’employees’ and prefer to use ‘team members’, and hates being called the CEO. Under his leadership, Procurify has grown from 32 team members in 2017 to 95 in 2018.

Aman Mann, the founder and CEO of Procurify, a cloud-based procurement platform used by tech heavyweights like Hootsuite, shares his story of hitting the pavement in the Valley to raise financing, building a remarkable team, leading from behind and his take on the state of Vancouver’s startup community. “Do not go where the path may lead. Instead, look inward, where this is no path and leave a trail.” This talented CEO has been noticed by Forbes, Techcrunch, Fast Company and Venturebeat. His startup graduated from GrowLabs, in 2013 and moved from public beta to commercialization. In this week’s Startup Canada Podcast, host Rivers Corbett chats with Aman about the success behind Procurify, and about the strategic steps he has taken to get where he is now. We hear what it’s like to startup a cloud-based B2B in Canada’s West coast and about some of the biggest lessons Aman learned on entrepreneurship while training at GrowLabs.
