ProProcure, the leading Marketing Spend Management Company, has further extended their partnership with Pernod Ricard the world’s
co-leader in wine and spirits.
Geneus, ProProcure’s e-procurement platform has been successfully integrated with the internal JD Edwards’ ERP systems of Pernod Ricard brands’, Martell, Mumm, Perrier-Jouët and Havana Club.
ProProcure has been working with Pernod Ricard since 2005. Their marketing spend management platform recognises the complexity of Pernod Ricard’s decentralised structure and can be tailored to integrate with individual ERP systems. To date the system has been successfully integrated with the financial system of Chivas Brothers Limited giving the brand total spend visibility over all their marketing collateral.
Nicolas Meauzé, Group Procurement Coordinator for Pernod Ricard, commented,
“ProProcure allows us to work seamlessly across continents to achieve the best combination of price and quality. By integrating the platform with our JD Edwards’ systems we also get complete visibility over all marketing spend and can streamline our business processes resulting in both efficiencies and cost savings. Given this integration has already worked successfully for Chivas Brothers Limited it made sense to roll it out to our other brands.”
Throughout the integration project ProProcure worked closely with the client teams and third party service providers to configure the existing bespoke integration, which is built using the industry standard AS2 protocol. By deploying the most effective resources and expertise to manage the project, ProProcure was also able to identify and implement other system enhancements which made it easier for the client teams to align their processes to the platform.
Frank Treanor, CEO of ProProcure Ltd, said
“Pernod Ricard is a true global brand and we are delighted that they have extended their partnership with us. We have already been working with Martell, Mumm, Perrier-Jouët and Havana Club International for a number of years and this decision to integrate ProProcure with their financial systems demonstrates the confidence they have in our marketing spend management technology and the value we deliver to this long-term strategic relationship”.
