Ivalua has announced several innovations that allows direct material procurement and supply chain leaders to introduce more profitable, successful products. 

Having been founded in 2000, the leading spend management company has introduced a number of new capabilities. Some of Ivalua’s latest capabilities include; Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP) and New Product Introduction (NPI) capabilities, in addition to enhancements to its existing Bill of Materials (BOM) Lifecycle Manager. Ivalua counts lots of the world’s leading manufacturers as customers, including Whirlpool, Michelin, Flex, Chassis Brakes International, Danieli and Hutchinson. It has meant that Ivalua’s solutions for manufacturing and direct materials has been extended.
