    Bally Extends Supply Chain Governance with JAGGAER

    Milan, May 23, 2023 – Bally, the Swiss luxury brand founded in 1851 and now present with 320 stores and 500 multi-brand outlets in 60 countries worldwide, has chosen the JAGGAER ONE platform to optimize the visibility and governance of its purchasing and supplier management processes.  The project will be carried out in collaboration with Reply Consulting. 

    Bally’s Purchasing Department needs to manage the marked increase in its activity in a new way, by streamlining and digitalizing internal procedures. This is the result of the company’s rapid growth, increasingly stringent requirements for supplier base management and risk mitigation, renewed attention to ESG parameters that must be managed throughout the supply chain with increasingly efficient processes, and the demand for better visibility of spend data.  

    JAGGAER’s vast experience of the procurement processes of the fashion world and the continuous drive for technological innovation guided Bally’s choice of the JAGGAER ONE solution, which will allow the company – quickly and with a progressive adoption path – to manage more than 25,000 annual orders and a thousand suppliers digitally, giving a new direction to the reading and analysis of spend management data. 

    The JAGGAER ONE platform will be the point of contact for supplier interactions, from onboarding, qualification, and document management through to performance management. At the same time, the solution will enable management of the order request input and approval flow, giving procurement management better and more detailed visibility into spend data in a timely manner and also ensuring better governance throughout the process. 

    “The fashion world is accelerating the process of innovation, and Bally is a concrete example of the industry’s willingness to achieve real transformation,” commented Matteo Ambrosioni, Account Executive at JAGGAER. “There are more than twenty departments involved in the digital procurement revolution which, together, we are driving forward to achieve automated, simplified, and more timely management of purchasing processes, capable of creating efficiency and value in the supply chain.”
