"For events involving ground transportation, indirect materials, and services, we have seen consistently impressive results with CombineNet ASAP. We expect the same in other categories, in other business verticals. The use of advanced sourcing technologies, coupled with advanced spend analysis, empowers the CEVA team to deliver increasing value to our global customer base."
- Simon Boggis, Chief Procurement Officer, CEVA Logistics
"With more data under one tender event, there was the need to support the process with a strong e-sourcing solution. We chose CombineNet based on its intuitive handling of large data sets, the flexibility in defining tender variables, and the strong analytical engine to assess and visualize different implementation scenarios."
- Flavio Gall, Global Category Director for Freight and Fleet, Trinity Procurement
A.P. Moller – Mærsk A/S
"We selected CombineNet ASAP to provide us with a solution that can be adopted across multiple spend areas, particularly in complex categories. We believe it will improve our sourcing teams' capabilities in processing and simplifying the collection and analysis of bid data from our suppliers, support strategic sourcing plans, and ultimately drive more value and savings."
- Jacob Gorm Larsen, Head of E-Sourcing, Mærsk Procurement.
"CombineNet enables us to say, for instance, this is the carrier you should be able to give freight to from a given port and at such-and-such rates."
- Martin White, Supply Chain Director, Primark.
"Visibility and transparency into our media spend and how it tracks against our annual plan is difficult to achieve using the status quo. With CombineNet giving us the ability to institute an improved process, with more robust data management and analysis, we can better manage our spend and deliverables, ensuring that we deliver ongoing value to our brands."
- Ian Hutchinson, Director, Worldwide Media Group, Reckitt Benckiser.
"Supported with CombineNet ASAP, the overall cost savings and mode optimization of moving more spend from air freight to ocean carriage will help assist in the further success for the project. And the additional insight we were able to capture and use in negotiations thanks to CombineNet ASAP would not have been possible before with other solutions, especially in the accelerated timeframe and global scale of this spend category."
- James Shaw, Global Lead, Freight & Logistics, AstraZeneca.
The Schindler Group
"This is a mature spend category for Schindler, one that we've strategically sourced for 10 years, and yet with CombineNet we were able to achieve excellent cost savings. We've tried other solutions that weren't capable of supporting this category, including Excel spreadsheets. Now I have a tool that works much, much better."
- Douglas Else-Jack, VP of Purchasing Excellence & Indirects at the Schindler Group.
"Having used CombineNet for a variety of sourcing events over the past four years, this new subscription agreement to the CombineNet ASAP web-based product will be leveraged by Smithfield Foods' Strategic Sourcing and Services team to improve sourcing decision-making across a range of spend categories and drive better supply chain and company performance."
