Basware Strategic Sourcing makes it easy to quickly identify, evaluate and select the right suppliers for a variety of business needs. Sourcing teams are more efficient and compliant in conducting sourcing events with a library of templates, sample questions and automated bid scoring with various evaluation formats, so they can focus on collaborating with key suppliers and driving more value for the business. By leveraging spend analytics from the P2P system for direct and indirect spending, sourcing and procurement teams are also equipped to right-size their supply base and negotiate favorable contracts. Ilari Nurmi, SVP, Purchase to Pay at Basware, explains: "As Basware is already a well-recognized global market leader in Purchase-to-Pay, strategic sourcing is the next logical step to provide to our customers. Basware's unique ability to achieve 100% user adoption of e-procurement with WeProcurement™ approach, 100% supplier on-boarding to the Basware Network and 100% spend capture creates a complete data set for our customers, and we want to empower them with more ways to use that information to their advantage." Ken Vanhoegaerden, Regional Supply Chain and Procurement Director, ISS World Services, says: "ISS has collaborated with Basware for many years to automate and increase both control and transparency across the purchase-to-pay process, and enhance supplier relationships with catalogues, e-orders and e-invoices. We are excited about the additional value strategic sourcing can provide us by forming a holistic source-to-pay process." Basware as an one-stop shop for the entire S2P process includes a collaborative e-sourcing solution, with agile eRFx and eAuction tools. The solution is augmented with Supply Base Management and Contract Management tools, making it easy to create contracts directly from sourcing events and turn them into electronic product catalogues within the e-procurement system.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., May 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fred Hutch, a world-renowned research and treatment institution in Seattle, has expanded its relationship with JAGGAER, producers of the world's most comprehensive Source to Pay (S2P) solutions suite, to improve efficiency and accelerate cost savings by enhancing its procurement process and enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Fred Hutch is home to three Nobel laureates and a place where interdisciplinary teams of world-renowned scientists seek new and innovative ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases. It joins other healthcare facilities that have upgraded or streamlined their procurement and supplier management processes with JAGGAER. According to Mark Burch, Director of Material Management for Fred Hutch, a key benefit of adopting JAGGAER is its ability to integrate with its existing PeopleSoft-based ERP system and retain log-in and other security credentials. “JAGGAER replaces a number of other methods of product ordering, allowing us to make this key function more streamlined and cost effective,” said Burch. “JAGGAER provides several key components to completing the end-to-end automation of our source-to-settlement and chain of custody solutions here.” JAGGAER empowers customers to drive spend to preferred contracts and suppliers through enforcement of business drivers and has helped customers achieve savings of five percent or more on procured goods and services. Its on-demand eProcurement solutions help gain tighter control over supply chain spending, while supporting the purchasing needs of healthcare professionals and staffers throughout the organization. With ever-escalating costs a concern for healthcare organizations, many are eagerly pursuing ordering methods that improve efficiencies and reduce costs. Healthcare supplies represent a significant and increasing share of operating expense. The management and control of the supply chain can have a dramatic impact on the bottom line of a healthcare organization. “Healthcare facilities and research centers need to save money without compromising patient care or groundbreaking research,” said Rob Bonavito, CEO, JAGGAER. “JAGGAER plays a key role in helping the Fred Hutch streamline its ordering process. We believe the improvements in accuracy, timeliness and cost savings will pay dividends for medical professionals and the patients they serve.” Thanks to JAGGAER, users of the Center's ERP-centric solution are able to order from multiple vendors on one cart, electronically transmit orders and receive centralized email confirmations of orders. About JAGGAER  JAGGAER’s comprehensive and complete spend solutions suite enables commerce between any businesses, anywhere.

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., May 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JAGGAER, producers of the world's most comprehensive Source to Pay (S2P) suite, is launching a suite of solution bundles tailored specifically for the needs of multiple major industry verticals. Procurement industry analysts have cited specialized vertical solutions as the critical next step in the evolution of S2P spend solutions.

Industries addressed include manufacturing, logistics, healthcare, retail, CPG and life sciences/pharma. JAGGAER currently provides the leading solution suite in higher education, and a specialized solution developed from the ground up for life sciences materials management. “Industries have specific needs that have been thus far met by customization of core software offerings.

French spend and procurement management software company Ivalua has raised $70 million from private equity firm KKR. Ivalua’s cloud-based software, like its Source-to-Pay (S2P) platform, is used by companies to manage spending and procurement in one platform. Its customer base includes large clients such as Honeywell, the City of New York, and Deutsche Telekom. “The spend management software market is undergoing a huge transformation, coming out from under the shadow of better-known SaaS sectors. Ivalua is a success story in this strategic market,” said David Khuat-Duy, CEO of the company, which is now headquartered in California. The investment from KKR will accelerate the company’s software development as well as help improve its reach into other markets. The market for spend management software is worth nearly $25 billion, said Lucian Schoenefelder, director at KKR. “The market is currently at an interesting inflection point away from really niche solution providers to more full suite providers like Ivalua; at the same time away from legacy on-premise ERP linked software towards more flexible cloud solutions,” he told Tech.eu. KKR will assist Ivalua with its growth in Europe and the US with an eventual push into the Asian market as well as provide business connections for its software. “We have a big portfolio of around 120 companies, mostly PE-backed companies, that are large and profitable and have significant spend,” explained Schoenefelder. These are all companies that need to manage their procurement costs and may use Ivalua, he added. Ivalua previously raised €3 million from Ardian (formerly Axa Private Equity) in 2011, who remain shareholders in the company.
