Laerdal Medical Chooses Ivalua To Drive Efficiency and Compliance Across Its Global Organization
Redwood City, CA – January 16, 2020 – Ivalua, a leading global spend management cloud provider, and OJC Consulting, recognised software solutions implementation and consulting provider, have been chosen to transform procurement operations at Laerdal Medical – a world leading provider of training, educational and therapy products for lifesaving and emergency medical care.
Laerdal is a global corporation with operations in over 24 countries and production facilities in four separate global locations. They will leverage Ivalua’s industry-leading Sourcing, Contract Management and Analytics functions for both direct and indirect procurement across the organisation. The implementation of Ivalua will increase efficiency, reduce manual work and help to manage growth in Laerdal’s procurement operations.
Ms Ane H. Eliassen, Procurement Manager at Laerdal explains: “Laerdal was looking for a single global suite to support and standardise our 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.”
With Ivalua, Laerdal will also improve transparency and 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.” Ms Ane H. Eliassen, Procurement Manager at Laerdal
“A growth such as the one experienced by Laerdal can be quite challenging and require that processes are carefully designed and adopted by all entities of the group. The streamlined and collaborative features of Ivalua help support those processes and bring maximum efficiency to all actors” Olivier Julian, CEO at OJC Consulting.
“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,” explains Stephen Cleminson, Alliances Director at Ivalua.
