JAGGAER, the world’s largest independent spend management company, today announced the successful completion of a global digitalization project with Rittal, the world’s leading systems provider for enclosures, power distribution, climate control, and IT infrastructure. With JAGGAER’s Source-to-Pay (S2P) solutions suite, Rittal now has a central database containing all of its global supplier information that its subsidiaries can easily access from anywhere in the world.

“The comprehensive product portfolio and full ERP integration of JAGGAER’s mature S2P solutions were key factors behind our decision to work with JAGGAER,” said Ingo Schmidt, Business Process Management / S&P at Rittal GmbH & Co. KG. “The suite has helped our team make all of Rittal’s procurement processes more transparent and has improved the quality of these processes. In addition to gaining a complete overview of all of our requests, we now have full transparency into the management of our global suppliers.”

A world market leader with 13 manufacturing locations and 58 subsidiaries, Rittal first began working with JAGGAER’s comprehensive S2P indirect and direct procurement solutions four years ago. In addition to making global procurement processes more transparent, Rittal has digitalized and automated its administrative tasks. Rittal has achieved its highest ROI to date by automating the purchase order process, and has allocated the time saved to more strategic tasks. Today, Rittal processes 80% of its orders through JAGGAER’s digital platform, and has processed over 20,000 requests.
