How It Works Diagram

How It Works

Cinema Solutions is an electronic purchasing management solution built specifically for the cinema industry. Electronic Purchasing Management is also often refered to as e-Procurement. As you can see from the diagram above, the solution is built on three very important design principles. First and foremost, the solution is provided through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) meaning there is no software to install and the system is accessed over the Internet using your web browser. Second, the solution is built as a collaborative platform for both Buyers and Suppliers to jointly manage the purchasing process. Last but not least, the solution is built on a configurable workflow which streamlines the purchasing process for all parties.

In addition to the design aspects mentioned above and detailed below, Cinema Solutions is a turnkey solution. Read on to learn more about each of these topics.

Software-as-a-Service

Software-as-a-Service, or SaaS, is the newest wave in software delivery. A SaaS solution is one that requires no software to install and no hardware to purchase and maintain. Using the power of the Internet, you have access to a comprehensive purchasing solution 24/7. With SaaS, you get all of the benefits of an on-premise solution without the hassles of hiring or relying on internal IT resources such as servers and support.

A Collaborative Platform

Cinema Solutions works as a collaboration platform for both buyers and suppliers to jointly manage the purchasing process. Lack of collaboration has consistently been named one of the chief obstacles to successful e-procurement. With Cinema Solutions, this obstacle is dealt with head on by creating a universal platform for the cinema industry where buyers and their suppliers work together to co-manage the purchasing process. The immediate benefits to collaboration are accuracy and customer loyalty.

A Best Practices Workflow

The Cinema Solutions Workflow is a derived process that provides structure to your purchasing.  The process was built on the basic principles of e-procurement combined with standard cinema industry business practices. The Workflow can be configured to fit your needs based on Accounting and Operational policies. Learn more about the Best Practices Workflow.
