The study was carTied out using Safaricom Company, Moi Avenue branch located in Nairobi
Kenya. This research was intended to examine the impact of e-business in the procurement
process in organizations. Data used was collected from Safaricom suppliers, its customers and
the purchasing department. Questionnaires and interviews guides were used as tools to gather
this data from 40 respondents. The data was analyzed both quantitatively and qualitatively.
Both male and female respondents were selected and considered equally for the study.
The study findings revealed that electronic business in the purchasing department made the
entire process simplified therefore creating more clarity and accountability in the work
process. E-business greatly helped prevent stock-outs and cuts on lead times. This therefore
helped create more efficiency in the business practice.
E-business has also greatly helped the organization acquire a larger market through the
additional services offered. These services include, though not limited to, M-pesa, access to
one's account through the phone, paying bills through mobile and advance credit for airtime.
Therefore, e-business came highly recommended for the smoother functioning in an
organization. It was noted however, that for this technology to function properly, suppliers
and associates also had to incorporate electronic business into their organization.
