  • "Business-to-Business Online Purchasing: Suppliers’ Impact on Buyers’ Adoption and Usage Intent" Members Only Content, Vol. 37, No. 1 (Winter 2001), p. 4.

    Experts predict that the Internet will become the primary low-cost network for business-to-business commerce transactions. Both buying and selling firms can benefit from the cost savings and produc-tivity improvements associated with online pur-chasing. Although more organizational buyers are turning to the Internet for purchasing activities, challenges exist as some buying firms harbor concerns. To assist suppliers in the development of effective strategies aimed at increasing online pur-chasing among professional buyers, a study was designed to investigate the impact of supplier sup-port on buyers’ adoption of the Internet for corpo-rate-related purchasing activities. Path analysis was used to examine the relationships among four vari-ables: supplier support, communication convenience, buyer adoption behavior, and Internet usage intent. The results suggest that suppliers play a critical role in the adoption of this new innovation. By offering encouragement, guidance (e.g., training), and incen-tives (e.g., price discounts) and by stressing conve-nience of use, suppliers can increase the likelihood that buyers will adopt and use this new method for purchasing.

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that electronic data interchange (EDI) is being used increasingly by companies, particularly to facilitate purchasing transactions. As this trend continues, one of the issues facing managers is understanding what effect adoption of the new technology will have on the organization as a whole, and on the purchasing department in particular. The results of this study, based on a survey of 122 purchasing managers, indicate that the impact of EDI is moderated by the volume of transactions using EDI.

    Electronic procurement is currently one of the most discussed topics in supply management. Without doubt, it will dramatically change the way purchasing is done in the near future. Telgen (1998) calls it a "revolution through electronic purchasing." This article analyzes the possibilities of electronic marketplaces for buyers, primarily from a theoretical perspective. The article develops an analytical framework that is based on information economics theory, which may be the most important theory to analyze market problems in general. It is combined with a systematic approach for procurement transactions based on Williamson's (1985a) transaction theory. An e-procurement matrix is developed that could help to systematize different e-procurement instruments. Various data types available from electronic marketplaces are analyzed with a business model for electronic marketplaces. These business models show the real value added by e-procurement.

    Less than one in 10 large Management Information System (MIS) projects succeeds. While the procurement process is not the only factor known to contribute to this high failure rate, it has been consistently identified as a source of difficulty. Knowing that procurement contributes to difficulty, however, is not useful if the reason it does so is not also known. This article analyzes procurement's contribution to failure, and describes the reforms needed to improve opportunities for success. The problem stems from the wide use of tender theory procurement (competitive bidding), and the invalid assumption that a specification can provide the basis for making value-oriented MIS buying decisions. In addition, tender theory procurement interacts with the MIS project environment to create an ethical hazard that makes it almost impossible to succeed. The reforms needed to overcome these problems are substantial. They require that tender theory be set aside and replaced by partnering-oriented procurement methods.

    Based on two British case studies involving 25 companies, of which six industrial wholesalers are central actors, the research concluded that, overall, EDI strengthens industrial buyer-seller relationships. Actors who use EDI in their role as buyers do in fact experience the advantages normally associated with the use of EDI. But from the suppliers' point of view, the perceived strengthening is unrelated to how and how much EDI is used. Many suppliers have implemented EDI largely to retain their customers, but frequently gain no direct financial benefits from the use of EDI. Thus, the benefits of EDI are not equally distributed. Buyers of the industrial products studied have not yet made EDI a condition for doing business. At the same time, most suppliers tend to overestimate the amount of additional business they are getting by implementing EDI.
  • "The Impact of Web-Based Procurement on the Management of Operating Resources Supply" Members Only Content, Vol. 36, No. 1 (Winter 2000), p. 4.

    The focus of this article is on the impact of Web-based order processing systems for procurement strategy in the management of maintenance, repair, and operating (MRO) supply. The management of MRO supplies has been little discussed in the literature, and in many organizations is undertaken in a devolved, decentralized, and uncoordinated fashion. Consequently, MRO procurement is often a poorly managed and non-value-added activity, yet MRO purchases may account for many millions of dollars of expenditure for organizations across most, if not all, industries. To explore the impact of Web-based procurement systems on MRO purchasing, a Delphi study was conducted providing access and analysis of commercially sensitive data.

    The procurement process is notorious for being tedious and protracted due to data gathering and prolonged negotiations. With the emergence of the World Wide Web, more and more companies have established a visible presence by publicizing their products on their Web sites. If this information can be accessed automatically, ideally without the need for human intervention, the time required for procurement can be reduced. Intelligent Software Agents (ISAs) can potentially fulfill this function. In this article, an implementation of electronic sourcing using ISAs is discussed. An intelligent software agent was created using Java-To-Go™, a template which extends the Java Programming Language™. A client agent from the computer of the sourcing organization visits the Web sites of prospective vendors to determine if they can supply the product according to the procurement specifications. A rudimentary example of sourcing for spur gears is discussed. The demonstration conducted has proven the viability of software agents in undertaking the task of procurement in electronic commerce. Further research and development is necessary before software agents can be used more extensively in electronic procurement.

    Past studies into EDI have shown, mostly by examples, that EDI can be used as a supplier management tool to achieve improved supplier reliability by providing both trading partners with better information. This, in turn, leads to closer supplier relationships, fewer late orders, and a decrease in problems with delivered quality, quantity, or mix. The research discussed in this article tests this contention by examining EDI usage patterns and supplier reliability in a sample of 30 companies that transmit purchase orders to their suppliers via EDI. The study found that the quality of delivered products and materials, as well as the delivery of the correct item/mix, is related significantly to (1) the buyer's experience using EDI as a tool in supplier management; (2) the willingness of both the buyer and supplier to share sensitive production and capacity information; (3) the acquisition of the EDI system; and (4) the level of EDI integration with other computer applications. Integrating the findings of this study with past research suggests that EDI can be used as part of an overall supplier management strategy to improve supplier performance and reduce the cost associated with materials acquisition.
  • "The Use and Impact of Communication Media in Purchasing and Supply Management" Members Only Content, Vol. 36, No. 3 (Summer 2000), p. 29.

    Effective communication is a critical component of buyer-supplier relationships. Purchasing professionals utilize a variety of media to communicate with suppliers, including phone, fax, face-to-face, mail, e-mail, Internet, and electronic data interchange (EDI). The purpose of this research was to assess the impact of EDI and a variety of other media on buyer-supplier relationships and performance. Analysis of the responses from a survey revealed that EDI is not living up to its promise. The results also show that purchasing professionals' preference for various communication media depends on the nature of the message being transmitted.

    This article reports the results of a Center for Advanced Purchasing Studies (CAPS)-sponsored study on the Year 2000 (Y2K) problem in the supply chain. A special research agenda is presented which shows that the Y2K challenge is not just a computer problem. Models for achieving supply chain Y2K compliance are developed and empirically tested. The data are based on questionnaires and focus groups in the United States and Germany.
