-- Best practice supply chain & procurement capabilities now available for 
rapid deployment to manufacturers

Ivalua, a leading provider of global Spend Management ( 
) Cloud solutions, today announced the availability of a pre-packaged suite of 
solutions for manufacturers ( 
). The new packages span the full source-to-pay process for all spend

goods and services. Manufacturers have the ability to rapidly deploy best 
practices to manage all spend effectively within a single platform, or select 
modules to target specific processes or spend categories.

Unlike competitive offerings, the package is on the same, single code base as 
Ivalua's full suite and offers the full capabilities and extensibility of the 
Ivalua platform. Manufacturers can quickly deploy tailored best practices and 
realize a rapid ROI, yet maintain the flexibility to meet changing requirements 
or configure unique processes to build a competitive advantage or meet unique 
organizational requirements.

Ivalua's suite empowers customers to better manage their spend and suppliers. 
Supply chain leaders are able to deliver more profitable products to market 
faster, with less risk and higher quality. Procurement leaders can improve 
efficiency, reduce costs, improve the employee experience and better 
collaborate with stakeholders to achieve strategic objectives.

Pre-packaged solution highlights for manufacturers include:

    - Bill of Materials (BOM) Management: Effective supplier selection and cost 
      modelling with n-level BOM visibility to optimize supply chains and speed 
      time to market 

    - Quality - APQP: Effectively manage processes to ensure high quality 
      products and services that will satisfy customers 

    - PO and Forecast Collaboration: Close collaboration with suppliers to 
      ensure supply chain efficiency and continuity of supply 

    - Assets & Tooling Management: Management of asset and tooling budgets and 
      lifecycles collaboratively with suppliers

Ivalua already counts many of the world's leading manufacturers as customers, 
spanning all major regions. These include Whirlpool, Michelin, Flex, Chassis 
Brakes International, AMETEK Inc., Danieli, Hutchinson and many others. The new 
solution captures the knowledge gained serving these leaders and new 
capabilities, enabling Ivalua to deliver more value faster.
