Meet Current SCM – Project-Based Procurement Software

Current SCM project-based procurement software

Current SCM is a first of its kind.

A project-based procurement and materials management software built by procurement professionals for sophisticated 3rd party procurement teams.

Now you may be thinking… that didn’t already exist?

No, it didn’t.

Sure, there is no shortage of procurement software and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. But none of these options prioritize the needs of project-based 3rd party procurement.

We searched high and low. Invested in software licenses. Built complicated spreadsheets to try to connect multiple applications.

There was no easy solution. So, we built one.

Current SCM project-based procurement software

Who is Behind Current SCM?

Current SCM was developed by Vista Projects, a longstanding industrial engineering firm known for digital project execution based on single source of truth (SSOT) data architecture.

Built out of necessity, Current is a powerful all-in-one solution to quickly ramp up and ramp down procurement projects of any size.

As mentioned, we endured many frustrating years of trying to find a supply chain management software solution that was:

  • Robust enough for complex materials management
  • Designed for project-based procurement
  • Flexible and easy to customize
  • Centralized and secure

Why We Built Current SCM

At Vista, we believe the world needs industrial projects.

We also believe that intelligent data management systems can increase the likelihood of innovative solutions getting to market. This need is only going to increase with ESG strategies calling for enhanced reporting capabilities throughout the supply chain.

We experienced the challenges first-hand for years. There was clearly a void in the market for project-based, 3rd party procurement and materials management software.

We had tried it all…

  • ERP Systems: cumbersome, hard to use, cost a fortune to customize
  • Procure to Pay Apps: only allow payments from one organization, don’t accommodate complex materials management
  • Spreadsheets: too much human dependency, lack of collaboration and automation, lead to costly errors

Current SCM is a procurement platform built for the long term.

It’s backed by years of carefully planned development within Vista’s engineering operations. And this enterprise-grade multi-tenant software-as-a-service (SaaS) is now available to the market. Pricing plans start at just $149/month!
