When Ferdinand Piëch surprisingly poached Spaniard José Ignacio López de Arriortúa for Volkswagen from General Motors in 1993, the topic of efficient procurement was launched into the public consciousness for the very first time. Even though that particular signing backfired spectacularly, it doesn’t change the fact that procurement plays a key role in the world of business – accounting for up to 80 percent of external value creation. Anyone in this field will undoubtedly be interested in the new procurement solution called Ivalua Buyer that provides buyers with software from the secure Telekom cloud. The cloud solution that T-Systems partner Ivalua is showcasing at CeBIT 2016 enables companies to optimize their procurement processes and so get more added value from them.
As T-Systems hosts this modular procurement solution exclusively on its own data centers in Germany, all the data is safeguarded by the country’s stringent regulations. What’s more, T-Systems is responsible for the consulting, implementation, integration and Ivalua services, so customers get an all-in-one end-to-end solution with Ivalua Buyer. T-Systems offers companies a cost-free Ivalua demo so they can gage the savings they could make by completing a T-Systems procurement quick-check. Deutsche Telekom, whose own purchasing volume runs into several billions of euros per year, started using the Ivalua Buyer cloud solution itself for sourcing and contract management in January 2016.
