Digital Procurement Systems Procurement Intelligence

In this digital procurement systems procurement intelligence report, we have estimated the pricing of the key cost components. License, support, implementation, and maintenance form the largest cost component of digital procurement systems businesses. Together, they account for about 75% of the total cost. The cost also depends on the type of software being deployed, the number of users accessing the software, the mode of deployment whether it is on-site or on the cloud, and the type of pricing. 

For example, cloud-based software costs start at 15.9% of on-premise software. Costs for an e-procurement software varies from as little as USD 300 per month all the up to more than USD 50,000 for a one-time license. Firms can add user licenses to on-demand software as they need them and remove them when they don't, ensuring that firms only pay for what they really use. This is essential in light of the fact that most businesses software programs have licenses for 20% to 50% more users than are ever actually logged in to the system.

Rate Benchmarking

The cost of developing digital procurement systems is significantly lower in India than in other developed countries like the US, due to the country's large and skilled workforce and low cost of living.The average salary for a software engineer in India is about USD 20,000 per year, while the average salary for a software engineer in the United States is about USD 100,000 per year which is five times higher. It has been discovered that implementing an offshore strategy can assist a corporation in reducing employment costs by more than 50 - 60%. Further, the rate at which these systems are provided to firms also depend on the mode of deployment of the softwares and the pricing models implemented. For example, no matter the length of the term, SaaS providers typically provide yearly contracts with the same monthly rate. Additionally, for a set incremental charge, they let consumers start with a small number of seats and add more later. On the other hand, hosted ASP model providers of perpetual licenses demand contracts with a minimum duration of three years and may grant discounts for longer terms. Additionally, they strive to offer consumers more seats than they will use over the course of the contract, not simply the ones they require right then.
