Viparis optimises processes with Ivalua and Consulting firm CKS

Tuesday 10th September, 2019

Viparis a European leader in conferences and exhibitions has chosen Ivalua and Consulting firm CKS to equip its Procurement department with a software suite that meets the challenges of an exceptional deadline for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris and will help sustain the Group’s growth.

Viparis has chosen e-Procurement software vendor Ivalua and CKS to optimise the management of supplier relations, source-to-contract (purchase orders, calls for tender and contracts), expense analysis and measurement of Procurement performance.

The solution implemented is based on a “pre-configuration” that combines the reference functionalities of e-Procurement. Operating on a tight schedule that involved implementation in just a few weeks, the CKS team took care of project management, design and setup.

Providing a perfect fit for Viparis project support needs, CKS combines mastery of the Ivalua solution with thorough knowledge of the Procurement process and the ability to lead change management.

Aurélien Vépierre, Procurement Director for Viparis, explains:  “We needed a flexible tool that could standardise our processes and help our buyers optimise the way they handle calls for tender. We were convinced by the quality and the extensive functional scope of the Ivalua solution. With Ivalua, we benefit from a fully integrated, end-to-end process that meets this goal perfectly. In addition, set-up was very simple, thanks to the expertise, sharing of best practices and availability of CKS consultants.”
