Wittur innovates procurement with Jaggaer

 In News

Wittur, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of lift components, presents its new international supplier management platform based on Jaggaer technology.

A major procurement digital transformation project has been launched through a new platform, which centrally enables online management of key information related to the supplier base.

The portal, available in 5 languages, already has 4,000 suppliers from all over the world, distributed in more than 100 product categories. The technology also supports risk assessment analysis through dedicated scorecards, which are crucial for decision-making.

The digitisation journey encompasses document management related to suppliers, down to the management of contracts and framework agreements. “It was necessary and urgent for us,” comments Pedrina Lucio, Manager of Purchasing Performance Office at Wittur “to have online, in a dedicated platform, all the information and best practices that were present in different Wittur offices around the world. Now all key information on our suppliers is tracked, available and usable in a few clicks, and the category tree allows us to use the entire register for different tasks. We are pleased with the progress we have made with JAGGAER on this fruitful journey.”

“The project developed quickly and smoothly,” adds Fabio Moretti, Account Director at Jaggaer. “The objectives and the solutions were clear for us right from the start; together we shared a linear process that immediately yielded the expected results, facilitating the team’s adoption of the new platform.”

One of the next steps relates to sustainability; Wittur aims to integrate to the platform the activities it currently performs to qualify and track the compliance with key ESG criteria   for all global key suppliers.

Headquartered in Germany, production sites in 11 countries, almost one billion in sales by 2022, 4,900 employees with 7 competence centres, over 600 patents and more than 50 countries served by the sales network, the widest product range: these are Wittur’s figures.
