Ivalua is a unique suite provider in the procurement technology market – but in more ways than one. From a solution perspective, on the one hand, Ivalua is the natural heir apparent to Ariba Buyer in the procure-to-pay sector. Here, the provider brings a level of SaaS-based suite configurability that is sufficient to replace customized CD e-procurement implementations in all but the most complex of scenarios. But on the other modular hand, Ivalua also brings broader, and sometimes esoteric, suite depth in such areas as project and program management – in addition to sourcing, contract management, supplier management and other areas.
Ivalua is a provider to consider:
- For organizations that are looking to replace installed procurement software implementations with a cloud/SaaS model without sacrificing the flexibility gained from customization, Ivalua brings a distinctive set of capabilities that are likely to be a fit, as well as the flexibility for single tenancy and the ability to rollout updates and new capabilities as desired, not necessarily just “as pushed.”
- When an organization is looking to extend the capability of a source-to-pay suite to extend the influence of indirect procurement into direct materials and CAPEX areas
- For companies that are not looking for the in-the-box cloud solution that meets the proverbial 80% of source-to-pay requirements through particular approaches and best practices, but want to mirror perceived (actual or required) complexity unique to their own organization or highly specific industry or collaborative requirements with internal stakeholders and suppliers.
