Arkema Adopts Procurement Solution from Determine, Inc. at its Headquarters to Increase Purchasing Performance

Carmel, IN, January 22, 2019Determine, Inc. (OTCQB: DTRM), a pioneering leader in global Source-to-Pay and Enterprise Contract Lifecycle Management (ECLM) Cloud Platform solutions, announced today that it has been selected by Arkema to replace its existing procurement solution.

As part of the globalization and digitalization of the company’s purchasing strategy, Arkema — the leading French specialty chemical company with offices in 50 countries — has recently deployed the integrated, modular procurement solution from Determine, Inc. The ability of Determine’s cloud-based procurement solution to integrate Arkema’s specific requirements, as well as the solution’s user-friendliness and ergonomics, were the key factors behind Arkema choosing Determine.

Determine’s procurement solution is a flexible and efficient tool, it adapts to our business problems and to the complexity of our organization. Our users adopt the tool easily, as its user experience is like that of online commerce sites. We were able to verify it during implementation.”

Cécile Ballé, PEigaSS Project Leader, Arkema

The implementation of Determine’s procurement solution is part of a broader organizational change at Arkema, designed to improve the visibility of goods and services purchasing for the head office, enhance the value that buyers bring to their work and increase purchasing performance across this leading French chemical company.

Thanks to this procurement solution implementation, we will be able to involve buyers more in the process and benefit from their business expertise. It represents a real enhancement of the role of buyers on our operations.”

— Cécile Ballé, PEigaSS Project Leader, Arkema

Within the framework of this organizational change, the successful collaboration between Arkema, DetermineAlliance partner Xoomworks and Determine was instrumental in completing the project in the short timeframe available.

The Xoomworks and Determine teams were very professional and attentive. Thanks to the people and the procurement solution we are on the right track.”

— Cécile Ballé, PEigaSS Project Leader, Arkema

We are proud of the success of this procurement solution implementation project and will continue to support Arkema in their digital transformation and help increase their performance.”
