Laeral Medical, a global corporation that provides training, education and therapy products for lifesaving and emergency medical care, will leverage Ivalua’s Sourcing, Contract Management and Analytics within its direct and indirect procurement operations across the organisation. As a result of the implementation, the software will increase efficiency, reduce manual work and help manage procurement growth.
“We are delighted to welcome Laerdal Medical as a new customer. Our strong partnership with OJC allows us to successfully deploy digital transformation projects that deliver tangible benefits to our customers quickly, whilst maintaining the flexibility to adjust to future requirements. This allows us to make a lasting difference, setting us apart as the industry’s front-runners,” comments Stephen Cleminson, Alliances Director at Ivalua.
What does this mean for Laerdal Medical?
Laerdal Medical will benefit from a single global suite that will support and standardise its sourcing and procurement operations across all spend categories. “Our current manual processes are not scalable with our continued growth, we need a procurement system that can support us now and grow with us in the future,” explains Ms Ane H. Eliassen, Procurement Manager at Laerdal.
In addition, Laerdal Medical will benefit from increased transparency, track supplier performance and certifications. “Ivalua will enable us to better track the compliance of our suppliers and our organisation, which is extremely valuable to us as we are operating in the medical field which is a highly regulated industry,” continues Eliassen.
The growth Laerdal Medical is currently experiencing can be a challenge. This challenge needs carefully designed processes that are adopted throughout the business. “The streamlined and collaborative features of Ivalua help support those processes and bring maximum efficiency to all actors” Olivier Julian, CEO at OJC Consulting.
