According to Laurent Lepczynski and Pierre Helleboid, Procurement Software Project Managers at OVH Group, the company chose the Determine Cloud Platform for a number of key differentiators that make it stand out:
- A system that is easy to implement and configure: “We did not want to use a very heavy system, we needed a fluid transition and easy configuration.”
- A system that meets stringent security requirements at OVH: “Our data must stay with us, and the Determine Cloud Platform empowers this.”
- Expertise that meets and satisfies the business needs of the three departments — Procurement, Controlling and Accounting: “All procurement software is similar in offerings and the list of functionality, but Determine is better suited to meet specific business needs:”
- Procurement: The need to facilitate the work of buyers and reduce the administrative burden, including the management of suppliers through the portal.
- Controlling: The management of budgets on N levels with the establishment of approval rules, Excel import / export functionalities. “The Determine solution allows us to put as many levels as needed.”
- Accounting: Invoice reconciliation with the need to ensure that communication between two interfaces is fluid.
- A clear, intuitive user interface: “We can make requests for purchases very quickly; upon final implementation it will be very intuitive to use.”
OVH Group will roll out the Determine Cloud Platform in about 20 countries and will cover the entire Source-to-Pay spectrum, including Contract Management.
