Finavia combines centralized purchasing, automated invoice processing and e-invoicing to create an effective purchase-to-pay process.
Finavia moved from having a completely decentralized procurement process to implementing a centralized purchase-to-pay solution including e-Procurement, automated invoice processing and receiving e-invoices. The change has resulted in greater transparency and spend visibility, significant savings in process costs and harmonized operating methods. It has also made volume discounts possible.
"We now have a uniform purchasing method throughout the Group. The number of suppliers has decreased considerably: from 8,627 in 2008 to 3,492 in 2013" explains Ismo Karjalainen, Procurement Director at Finavia.
