Ivalua, a global leader in spend management, today announced that Imerys, a multinational company specializing in industrial minerals solutions, has chosen Ivalua to streamline its indirect and direct spend management processes. Imerys operates across 40 countries and five continents, generating an annual revenue of 4.4B €. It employs 17,000 people and has more than 15,000 customers.

Working with Ivalua, the company’s objective is to go toward a unified, global purchasing solution. Imerys will implement Ivalua’s full source-to-pay suite including all spend analysis. The solution will target all indirect commodities as well as raw materials and equipment.

Thanks to Ivalua, we look forward to establishing a bridge between sourcing and ordering, by creating a one-stop shop for all Imerys entities”, said Olivier Brunet, Imerys Purchasing Vice President.

“The responsiveness and transparency of the Ivalua platform make it well suited to assist Imerys in consolidating its purchasing solution, obtaining greater control over its expenses, and increasing overall efficiency,” said Dan Amzallag, Ivalua’s Chief Operating Officer (COO). “We are delighted to support Imerys in achieving its transformational objectives”.
