MASON, Ohio, June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Historically, purchasing management tools and vendor data validation are housed within separate software platforms. ConnXus and JAGGAER today announced their partnership which will integrate SmartScrub data validation within JAGGAER’s procurement platform.

A 2016 Procurement Executive Insight report by The Hackett Group demonstrates that supplier diversity programs bring great potential for increased market share and other benefits. And the quality of work is not compromised as this same study found that “99% of all diverse suppliers meet or exceed buyers’ expectations.”

SmartScrub provides procurement managers with a base understanding of their diverse supplier count by validating supplier classifications and aggregating diversity business certifications. Known for simplifying supplier management and supplier diversity programs, ConnXus holds the industry-leading data enrichment turnaround time of three to seven business days.

JAGGAER is an end-to-end procurement platform with distinguished capabilities that include procurement project management, inventory, logistics and quality management. Their strategic partnership with ConnXus will fill their diverse and international data validation gap.

“Efficient data management is at the top of procurement professionals’ minds,” states Daryl Hammett, ConnXus chief operations officer and co-owner. “Not only does SmartScrub streamline data efficiency, but it allows for managers and decision-makers to instill goals for supplier innovation and competitive advantages. We are excited to be working with JAGGAER and to be integrating SmartScrub into their cognitive procurement solutions.”

“Procurement leaders may be responsible for managing thousands of suppliers on several fronts, including financial stability, adherence to regulations, and supplier diversity,” states JAGGAER chief commercial officer, Roger Blumberg. “Failing to meet any of these standards can pose a massive risk to a company, and JAGGAER is thrilled to be partnering with ConnXus and integrating SmartScrub data validation to provide procurement managers with a comprehensive view of their diverse suppliers.”

Both companies exhibited at the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) 2017 Conference in Orlando last month, and each were recognized on Spend Matters 50/50 Lists for 2017. “ConnXus is making innovative strides in the procurement technology space which can be seen in our new Risk Scorecard, a supplier financial risk assessment,” explains Shweta Vaidya, ConnXus research and development manager. “It makes great business sense to partner with JAGGAER, a prominent leader in the industry.”

This partnership will enhance JAGGAER’s national and international clients’ supplier management and supplier diversity programs in an all-in-one solution.
