Milan — Research Triangle Park, North Carolina — March 21, 2018 – JAGGAER, the world’s largest independent spend management company, is digitally transforming the procurement and supplier management processes for Arcadis Italia, the leading global design and consultancy firm for natural and built assets.
Using the JAGGAER Advantage platform, Arcadis Italia has been able to implement fully traceable, transparent, and efficient procurement processes, in addition to offering suppliers the opportunity to apply online directly through the Arcadis Italia portal. In just over two months following the implementation of the platform, the Arcadis Italia portal has already published 22 Requests For Quotations and registered over 400 suppliers.
“The management of suppliers is a priority for Arcadis Italia,” comments Roberto Talotta, Country Leader and Managing Director Arcadis Italia. “The JAGGAER Advantage platform allows us to qualify suppliers based on our objective parameters – for example, the possession of certain certifications – ensuring adherence to the selection requirements. We also introduced scoring systems and collaborative assessment mechanisms of technical offers involving different company departments to ensure impartiality and compliance in the supplier assessment processes in particularly complex areas, such as tenders for public-sector job orders.”
The platform was implemented in just 4 weeks and is already widely used by the Procurement Department and suppliers.
“Speed in implementation was a key factor in the choice of JAGGAER Advantage together with full compatibility with the ERP technologies of Arcadis,” said Massimiliano Masiero, Senior Procurement Manager, Arcadis Italia.
“We have developed eProcurement projects for many companies in the Engineering & Construction industry worldwide. This expertise has allowed us to offer Arcadis Italia a sourcing and vendor management technology that adheres to the company’s processes, which is high-performing and easy to use by both the buyer and supplier. Now we are ready for assisting Arcadis Italia in continuing implementation of JAGGAER Advantage on an international scale,” said Robert Bonavito, CEO of JAGGAER.
Integrity, transparency, accountability, governance, collaboration and digitalisation are essential values for Arcadis, a Dutch engineering multinational active in 70 countries in the world in the areas of consulting, design, engineering and project management, with a turnover of over 3 billions of euros and 28,000 employees. This commitment, also substantiated by compliance with strict codes of conduct such as the Code of Ethics and the “Arcadis General Business Principle (AGBP)” guides all company processes, including purchasing management, with particular focus on tenders and selection of suppliers.
