Quadrem is providing Nestlé solutions that support global eRequisitioning of services and indirect materials, including development and ongoing support of electronic supplier catalogues, supplier on-boarding services and a Web- based XML platform supporting requisitioning transactions that will be integrated with Nestlé's enterprise resource planning systems (ERP).
The roll out initially involves Nestlé sites across Europe, North America and South America, and will expand to include operations across the rest of the world. Nestlé purchasing professionals in Europe are already working with indirect materials suppliers using Quadrem's applications and services.
"We are delighted to have the world's largest food company select Quadrem as its global partner for eRequisitioning of services and indirect materials," said Mike Efting, Quadrem chief executive. "We see a significant opportunity to work with Nestlé to further the services of the eMarketplace that will drive value for additional CPG companies who join, as well as existing Quadrem customers."
Nestlé, the world's largest food and beverage company, employs 230,000 people. The company has factories or operations in almost every country in the world.
Quadrem provides e-business solutions that enable buyers and suppliers to maximise procurement efficiencies. Established in 2000, Quadrem has locations in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Mexico, The Netherlands, Peru, Singapore, South Africa, and the United States.
