Lecta Digitalizes Procurement with JAGGAER
- Press Release
Madrid, December 1, 2020 – Lecta, a leading European manufacturer in the manufacture and distribution of paper solutions reaching 130 countries around the world, has signed a partnership agreement with JAGGAER to digitalize the procurement of goods and services.
Lecta, which is involved in a full process of digital transformation of its procurement department, took a decisive leap forward in the month of November, with the use of the JAGGAER auction module for the acquisition of chemical products, and the Sourcing module for factory maintenance material.
“With this digital solution, which guarantees the transparency and security of all processes, Lecta also hopes to strengthen its competitiveness, as well as the relationship with all its current and future suppliers, which is fundamental to our activity,” said Amador Pérez Morales, Purchasing Manager Chemical Lecta Products and Packaging.
“In this way, we hope to improve our procurement procedures, making them easier, faster, standardized and more efficient,” he added.
Carlos Tur, JAGGAER country manager for Spain and Portugal, highlighted that, “In addition to raw materials, a digital solution for procurement and supply chain functions allows the acquisition and negotiation of a wide variety of goods and services: energy supply, material, clothing, all types of equipment, logistics, and so on.”
“Having a digital platform provides benefits from the launch of the offer to its conclusion: financial savings, less time in processes, drastic reduction in bureaucracy and paperwork, greater transparency and greater reliability in the relationships with potential suppliers,” Tur emphasized.
As the next phase of this technological transformation of its procurement department, Lecta could include the holistic management of its suppliers, to obtain a 360º view to carry out negotiation, analysis, cataloguing and monitoring processes.
Lecta is one of the leading manufacturers of specialty papers for labels and flexible packaging, premium coated paper for large format advertising, high quality publishing and commercial printing, as well as other high added value products.
