DCC Selects Ivalua to Digitalise Source-to-Requisition

Ivalua, a global leader in spend management, and its partner Touchstone Spend Management, today announced that Data Communications Company (DCC) has selected Ivalua to digitalise and streamline its Source-to-Requisition (S2R) processes.

DCC operates a secure telecommunications network that connects smart meters in homes and small businesses with energy suppliers, network operators, and energy service companies in Great Britain.

DCC was looking for a solution to optimise its procurement processes and identified an opportunity to improve governance and assurance, and deliver greater value to stakeholders by driving transformational change.

After careful consideration, DCC selected Ivalua’s S2R platform including Supplier Risk & Performance Management, Sourcing, Contract Lifecycle Management and eProcurement to digitalise key procurement, commercial, risk, and contract-based processes.

The system provides end-to-end visibility and insights into its entire supply chain. The DCC will be able to monitor its activities and accurately report on its spend both at a supplier and contract level.

“Ivalua provides an efficient and flexible solution that, via a single source of information, meets DCC’s current business requirements and is equipped to support future growth and innovation”, said Dan Amzallag, Chief Operating Officer at Ivalua. “We are delighted to enable DCC to further automate and optimise its end-to-end commercial processes.”
