Exclusive! — Per Angusta and Silex Seal Strategic Partnership

Per Angusta, Procurement Performance Management (PPM) solution, and Silex, a cognitive sourcing platform, have joined forces to offer both private and public sector purchasing organisations a unique combination to improve purchasing performance.

The two platforms will integrate via an API and Per Angusta users will now have access, right from the sourcing phase, to the latest technologies in Artificial Intelligence and Big Data developed by Silex.

A native integration between the two platforms means users will be in a unique position to initiate purchasing projects and, at the same time, select the most relevant suppliers. The Per Angusta users will be able to identify all the suppliers available on the market, and analyse and solicit the most relevant companies. The information collected during the sourcing phase in Silex will then be transferred back into Per Angusta and through the Silex Artificial Intelligence and Big Data technologies users will be able to adopt the right purchasing strategy from the sourcing phase, to obtain the best impact on their global performance.

Pierre Laprée, Founder of Per Angusta, said:

"This partnership with Silex offers our users the possibility to easily and instantly leverage supplier sourcing in the course of their purchasing projects. Our complementary platforms demonstrate the value that ‘next-generation’ of purchasing solutions can bring to organisations, and how they help to raise the role of the function and make it a key contributor to the company's profitability."

Quentin Fournela, Cofounder of Silex, commented:

"Silex and Per Angusta are sharing common values of simplicity and flexibility, with intuitive and fast-to-deploy solutions. This partnership is therefore a natural combination between two agile structures that are dedicated to the best level of service for their users."

Per Angusta has been ranked in our 50 To Watch lists since 2016 and continues to innovate. Its Procurement Performance Management technology is designed specifically for category, sourcing, supplier and supply management programme performance optimisation and allows purchasing teams to both increase agility and efficiency in their strategic sourcing management and manage and share their performance with stakeholders and Finance.

Silex, as a relative start-up, focuses on modernising the Purchasing function through AI technology development to organise and accelerate purchasing processes. Paris-based it currently has 30 employees and boasts some large customers including Total, Monoprix and the French Department of Defence.
