For what reasons are you digitizing and digitalizing – what is you digitization journey like? Reducing manual labor, minimizing paper, increasing information quality, speeding up decision making? During a recent webinar we got to learn from the Laerdal transformation journey. Joanne Emslie Bornø, Category manager at Laerdal Medical gave us a step by step run through over their experiences. Now you can view it On Demand.
Laerdal is not a big company in terms of employees with its 1600 people. But they operate in 25 countries, have an annual sales of 450 mil USD and – most important of all – they have a mission to help save lives.
Having been dependent of their ERP for a lot of supply chain and procurement data – Laerdal decided to implement the configural technical solution Ivalua offer. Product development meaning a lot of documentation they felt another way of working was needed.
On Demand Laerdal’s Procurement digitization journey

During this session you can follow the journey from yesterday when poor data/accuracy was an issue, to today with clean data ready to be analyzed. Further how they plan to optimize the value chain. Or as Joanne stated it “We were data rich and information poor”.
An interesting aspect is the improved visibility on indirect procurement their work has had.
