The Louvre Hotels Group has approximately 1400 hotels, and having so many around the world meant that getting maximum efficiency and value from purchases across the group was a real challenge.
Most of the Group’s hoteliers had disparate procurement solutions so the company decided to be more strategic with its purchasing and provide each hotelier with access to one procurement platform. This was to encourage purchasing from approved suppliers, at best prices, while also providing visibility of what was being spent.
Laurent George, Procurement IT Manager at Louvre Hotels Group, commented, “Our relationship with Proactis started seven years ago, but it was still a big challenge for us to select the right platform. We selected Proactis as they were able to prove that they had the ability to understand and, when needed, adapt their processes and tools for our benefit. This was something very important to us.”
Proactis Holdings Plc (LON:PHD) develops and sells business software, and provides installation and related support services in Europe and the United States. The company offers Spend Control and eProcurement solutions that help organizations to improve operational and financial performance by enhancing the way they buy various goods and services.
