JAGGAER Source to Pay Solutions Gain Momentum in International Airport Industry

October 4, 2018

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Oct. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JAGGAER, the world’s largest independent spend management company, announces that 80% of the five largest Italian Airport operators, by passenger volume, as well as Heathrow and Abu Dhabi airports, utilize JAGGAER Source to Pay spend management solutions for their purchasing and procurement needs. JAGGAER customers include SEA (Milan Airports), SACBO (Bergamo Airport), SAVE (Venice Airport), GESAC (Naples Airport), Genoa Airports and several additional International airports.

The 2017 IATA (International Air Transport Association) global report on air transport shows a growing worldwide trend for the airport sector exceeding 4 billion travelers, an increase of 7.3% compared to the 2016. Growth also affects Europe (+ 8.2% vs. 2016) and Italy, with peaks for airports such as Milan Malpensa (+ 14.1%, airport managed by SEA) and Bergamo airport (+ 10.6%, managed by SACBO).

Many airport operators throughout Europe selected JAGGAER’s Suppler Management, eProcurement, Contract Lifecycle Management, Accounts Payable, Sourcing and Spend Analytics solutions, to conduct a complete digital transformation of their procurement departments. JAGGAER’s complete Source to Pay platform is one of the most highly rated within the transportation industry.

“The airport sector is highly competitive, and in the midst of a strong growth cycle. It’s critical that these enterprises continue to innovate and take advantage of the latest technology available to find value and efficiencies in their procurement operations. We have invested in understanding the transportation industry and developed specialized features to address their unique challenges, and our success in the market indicates that we have listened, understood and responded,” says Ezio Melzi, Managing Director of JAGGAER, Italy.

JAGGAER has long been a trusted solution partner for a wide range of industries in across Europe and the Middle East, collectively representing the transportation, manufacturing, chemical, pharmaceuticals, automotive, tech, and financial industries.

One-size-fits-all solutions can’t meet the procurement requirements of today’s international businesses, and leave companies ill-equipped to deal with the challenges of market volatility and the complexities of modern supply chains. JAGGAER is an ideal partner for businesses that are looking for unique, vertical-focused spend management solutions engineered to meet their specific industry’s needs.
