SC Software has entered into a contract for the delivery of the strategic sourcing solution with the City of Espoo. The customer estimates the total value of the system to be a maximum of 1.8 million euros.
Sourcing is one of SC Software’s key business areas, in which the company has invested significantly, for example by developing the cloud-based SC Sourcing Suite solution. Public procurement organizations have begun to invest more and more in the development of procurement processes and strategic management.
“Many public administration organizations are struggling with data siloed in separate systems and documents, as well as solutions that do not adapt to their processes. Separate systems do not talk to each other and support for management is missing. The supply of procurement solutions on the market has also remained the same for a long time. In the public administration, there has been a need for a modern and comprehensive sourcing management system – we want to meet this need,” says Tiina Vestman, Sales Director at SC Software.
“We are very happy that we will get the SC Sourcing Suite solution to support our everyday lives and that we can continue the development of our sourcing with SC Software. Their system is great, agile and it also provides the keys to informed leading of sourcing. Based on our previous experience, SC Software has proven as a partner that brings added value to the customer on its own initiative. System implementation projects are not always perceived as a great treat amidst the busyness of everyday life, but this time we are looking forward to the implementation project with SC Software’s competent experts!”, says Pihla Hynynen, CPO at the City of Espoo.
