“Our neutral B2B networking platform, Mercateo Unite, is a great addition to JAGGAER’s solution. The partnership will give buyers access to a flexible supplier network,” says Dr. Bernd Schönwalder, a board member of the Unite Network AG. Mercateo Unite’s seamless integration with JAGGAER’s solution will enable buyers to include multiple potential suppliers in the sourcing process while relying on trusted processes,” said Robert Bonavito, CEO of JAGGAER.
“Suppliers will also benefit from the new partnership,” explains Dr. Bernd Schönwalder, “They will have the opportunity to access a global network of buyers who spend billions of euros each year on indirect goods and services. Manufacturers and vendors can offer their goods and services where they’re needed. Because Mercateo Unite is a neutral platform, it is the perfect addition for many system and solution providers in indirect procurement.”
The platform will be implemented in the first quarter of 2019 and will be available to all of JAGGAER’s European customers.
