Swissport Chooses Ivalua To Optimize Its Purchasing Information System

Redwood City, CA September 14, 2017 – Ivalua, a global leader in Cloud Spend Management, is proud to announce that its platform has been selected by the Swissport Group Services.

As the world’s largest provider of ground and cargo handling services in the aviation industry, Swissport provides services on behalf of some 835 client-companies, handles around 230 million passengers and 4.1 million flights (movements) per year.

“With the global deployment of the IVALUA solution, we aim to standardize our source-to-pay process, automate and optimize performance. Managing more efficiently the different stages of the source-to-pay workflow in a single tool, this is new to our organization, but is a very welcome change. Ivalua has impressed us from the beginning due to their competent and customer friendly approach,”  said Marianna Zangrillo, SVP and Group CPO at Swissport.

Providing Swissport’s buyers with Ivalua’s collaborative source-to-pay tool will empower their business to meet the following challenges:

  • Establish a professional procure-to-pay process for all externally acquired goods and services
  • Close the gap between strategic sourcing and operational buying
  • Fill the missing links between selected suppliers, negotiated contract conditions and purchase orders
  • Reduce the number of transactions (invoices)
  • Reduce the number of discrepancies between orders and invoices
  • Introduce the 3-Way Match Process for invoices
  • Automate the P2P process to reduce inefficiencies

“We are proud and honored of the trust that Swissport has put in Ivalua for the group’s Full Suite project. Using a powerful tool generates many short-term gains both in terms of workload for buyers and in terms of decision-making support, particularly for our clients in the industrial sector. Choosing Ivalua is a true mark of trust in our e-Purchasing know-how and our ability to provide innovative solutions for companies the size of Swissport Group Services,” said Gilles Bismuth, Senior Vice President of Business & Development EMEA.
