Research Triangle, NC and London, UK, December 15, 2020 – JAGGAER has announced the renewal of its contract with Cancer Research UK, the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. The JAGGAER One platform will continue to help Cancer Research UK streamline and improve its sourcing and contract management and manage vital processes in the purchasing function.
To date, managing more than 1,200 contracts, 140 RFIs and 80 RFQs on the JAGGAER One platform has enabled Cancer Research UK to gain visibility and control over its spend, and allow stakeholders, including contributors, evaluators, legal and finance teams to collaborate efficiently and seamlessly.
Cancer Research UK, like most charities, has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic this year. The charity had to close its shops temporarily and cancel fundraising events including Race for Life. As a result of the pandemic, Cancer Research UK expects to see a decline in its income of £160m this year and £300m over three years.
Effective and efficient sourcing, procurement and supplier management is vital to the charity. Working with JAGGAER will help Cancer Research UK identify potential cost savings and respond with agility to changing needs and new sourcing requirements. This could be across a range of categories that extends from telecoms to the right kind of mud for the charity’s famous Race for Life Pretty Muddy® fundraising events.
Vitor Mariano, procurement category manager at Cancer Research UK, said: “Using the JAGGAER One platform allows us to have procurement systems in place that are efficient and streamlined, can identify cost savings and allow easy collaboration across the organization. This is essential for continuing our charity’s life-saving work to beat cancer. “
“Here at JAGGAER we support Cancer Research UK’s ongoing efforts to beat cancer. We wish them well and are pleased to play a role in helping them continue their life-saving research, ”commented Jim Bureau, CEO JAGGAER.
