Redwood City, May 21, 2013 – APRR, Europe’s fourth largest motorway operator (two billion euros in revenue; 4,000 employees) and a subsidiary of the Eiffage Group, operates a network of nearly 1,500 mi of highways. Confronted with new challenges, the APRR Group Purchasing Department decided to launch an initiative aiming to structure and professionalize its procurement activities through the implementation of a purchasing information system covering e-Procurement flow in particular.
In this context, APRR chose to rely on the Ivalua Buyer V7 e-Purchasing solution, with the goal of improving operational coverage of the supply chain process. Several modules were chosen to do the job, including Supplier References / Catalogs / Purchase Requests and Orders, which will be linked to APRR’s ERP system.
“To reach our new goals, we found it necessary to implement an e-Purchasing solution which would provide structure and facilitate the placing of orders, especially catalog orders. We chose Ivalua Buyer V7 because of its intuitive ergonomics and configuration flexibility, as well as for its wealth of functions,” explains Bernard Boubault, Purchasing Manager for the Group.
“We are very pleased to see that the APRR Group has placed its trust in us by integrating our e-Procurement management modules. Since Ivalua bases its approach on the issues faced by our clients, we pay close attention to the evolution of their needs to help them attain their goals in the best possible way,” concludes Gérard Dahan, General Manager EMEA for Ivalua.
