Sourcing Champions has expanded its growing roster of ecosystem partners with Ivalua, a provider of software that helps manage and optimise the source-to-pay cycle.

Headquartered in Amsterdam, Sourcing Champions is a boutique consulting firm specialised in procurement strategy and operations.

By integrating Ivalua’s platform into its offerings, Sourcing Champions will according to managing partner Robert Waalder be better positioned to help its clients drive more value from their source-to-pay processes – which runs from sourcing through to payments of goods/services and supplier management.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Ivalua, a leading source-to-pay solution in the market,” said Waalder. “This collaboration is more than just technology; it's about delivering strategic insights and personalised solutions to our clients, helping them navigate real procurement transformation challenges with confidence and success.”

Trusted by companies including Booking.com, Ikea, Odido, Michelin and Volkswagen, Ivalua’s platform brings all spend and suppliers together in a single source-to-pay platform. Waalder said that gaining such transparency – coupled with the data-driven engine of the platform – can unlock major benefits across both the operational and strategic sides of procurement.

“The combination of our deep domain expertise with Ivalua’s platform will enable the critical alignment of procurement practices with overarching business strategies, empowering organisations to effectively address external and regional challenges, including fluctuating market dynamics, supply chain disruptions, and sustainability imperatives,” he said.

Gabriel Giret, Vice President Alliances at Ivalua, added: “By combining Ivalua’s source-to-pay platform with Sourcing Champions’ expertise, we will equip our customers to foster agility, sustainability, and efficiency in their procurement processes.”
