Empowering spend visibility and collaboration across the group
Adequately managing spend across several companies is quite challenging for most procurement teams. These types of challenges are even more common for newly established or consolidated groups, where existing systems and solutions may differ throughout the organizations. We had a chat with Rolv Martin Hagen, Head of Supply Chain at Apply, a Moreld company, to get his perspectives on how Ignite Procurement helps support their needs.
Ignite Procurement is user-friendly, flexible, and gives us a complete overview and visualization of our spend data across the entire group, says Rolv Martin Hagen, Head of Supply Chain at Apply.
