JAGGAER Announces Procurement Solution

JAGGAER, the North Carolina-based provider of source-to-settle solutions, has just announced a new procurement solution designed to manage large Capex projects: Project Based Procurement (PBP). The solution was officially released at this year’s ISM conference in Nashville, and is already being used by two JAGGAER customers. PBP enables the aggregation of all the procurement elements of a project in a digital binder, which creates a single source of information pertaining to the project. The solution manages all deliverables and tasks surrounding a project, tracks all project related transactions, and includes the development of a library of all project related events, contracts, and documents. For companies that still manage large projects with paper or Excel, this automated solution should create greater project visibility for clients, which in turn will give them real-time budget control.
