Redwood, CA, March 2, 2023. Ivalua, a global leader in spend management, today announced that GN Audio has gone live with Ivalua’s Source-to-Contract (S2C) solution to digitalize its procurement operations and improve collaboration with suppliers.
Part of the 150-year-old GN Group, GN Audio offers intelligent audio, video, collaboration, and gaming solutions, marketed under the brands Jabra, SteelSeries, and BlueParrott.
GN Audio had selected Ivalua to create a connected, collaborative space by digitalizing a range of key procurement activities including sourcing, supplier management, and performance monitoring, as well as risk and contract management. Ivalua was chosen thanks to its ability to configure the platform to suit the company’s current and future needs, and the capability to empower GN Audio with seamless collaboration tools, including an SSO user integration with Microsoft Azure.
Additionally, as a company that is actively working to improve sustainability across its business, the degree of visibility into suppliers provided by Ivalua’s solution will also help GN Audio achieve its corporate social responsibility goals.
“Through increased digitalization, we will streamline crucial procurement operations from global supplier onboarding and management to performance monitoring, while also providing greater transparency into sourcing materials to manufacture our products,” says Liam Kenny, Vice President, Global Sourcing from GN Audio. “We are pleased to partner with Ivalua whose highly flexible solution will help us increase collaboration with suppliers, meet our strategic and sustainability goals, and, crucially, continue to innovate”.
