PRLog - Apr. 2, 2012 - Michael Url, Manager for Procurement, Process and Technology, SAPPI Papier Holding, joins SSON to discuss the transformation from the transaction to value-add means, and Spend analytics.

SSON: A few questions for you today. First, what does moving beyond the transaction to value-add mean to SAPPI and what are the main focus areas driving this transformation?

M Url: Let me answer for operation procurement. There, the key answer is we want to avoid transactions by automating them. In practical terms, what we are doing is instead of manually transferring the purchase requisition to purchase order, we try to do automated catalogues or a fixed source of supply, so that the requisitioner asks for something and then it gets automatically sent to the supplier and delivered.

In the area of strategic purchasing, this is clearly a transparent and easy access to the data so that for a strategic buyer there shouldn’t be any thresholds to excess spend data or the excess consumption data. Those, I would, say are the two key areas in procurement.

In the area of invoice certification, it is, of course the workflow, automated workflow, and avoiding paper circulating, even though we are a paper company.

SSON: Your presentation will focus on Spend analytics. In what area has this made the biggest impact, eg, spend by commodities, improve visibility, etc?
