Kronos Group and Ivalua join forces to optimise H.Essers’ Purchase2Pay & Contract Management
Paris, France – 20 November, 2019 – Ivalua, a global leader in Cloud Spend Management solutions and its key consulting partner Kronos Group have joined forces to successfully deliver Purchase2Pay & Contract Management at H.Essers, a major logistics service provider. The project has streamlined processes from purchase to payment at an international level. The successful cooperation between Ivalua and Kronos Group has provided H.Essers with a highly efficient and complete system for all of its purchase, payment and contract management activities.
H.Essers is a leading logistics service provider in Europe, with headquarters in Belgium and a strong presence throughout the world. Due to its continuous expansion, the logistics company was in need of an optimised system to increase its purchase-to-pay efficiency and decrease the administrative workload. Thanks to the dedicated Kronos team assigned to the project, the Ivalua solution was fully implemented within less than 6 months.
“We are delighted to have successfully deployed the H.Essers project with our partner Kronos. Our strong partnership allows us to successfully deploy digital transformation projects that deliver significant benefits to our customers quickly, while still 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,” explains Gabriel Giret, Head of EMEA Alliances at Ivalua.
“After 8 months of deep market analysis, the Ivalua solution was the only one to meet all our requirements. It offers not only an extended functional coverage, a great performance and flexibility but also a unique user experience and the capability to deliver high value transformation projects in a short time frame. The Ivalua and Kronos Group teams complement each other, sharing the goal of guiding our mutual customers into the new era of procurement and finance 4.0 excellence,” adds Benoit Graas, Partner at Kronos Group.
“Simplicity and caring are two of our core values,” says Christophe Custers, Purchase Manager at H.Essers. “We had to adopt a new system to simplify our internal processes, decreasing the time spent on administration and investing that spare time into delivering even better services to our customers. In addition, Ivalua provides comprehensive and real-time data about our purchases, allowing us to manage spend and suppliers as effectively as possible.”
