LEEDS, UK – 8th October 2009. LAKE today announced that it is to supply and implement a Spend Control solution based on PROACTIS and Infor SunSystems. The order for software includes Proactis Spend Management, Proactis Expenses Management and Vision for Proactis.
[Name], Finance Director for [Company Name], explains the context for system change:
"The fundamental driver is to improve business efficiency. That is, to drive more effective use of resources, to improve both the speed and accuracy of management information, and, primarily, to enable better control and decision making...
.. I expect this implementation to result in changes that will improve our back office capability, improve our ability to manage suppliers and, ultimately, support our customers."
The selection of the LAKE solution followed a competitive process that included a comprehensive review of alternatives. [Name] makes the following comments about the selection of the PROACTIS solution from LAKE:
"We considered two key factors in the selection process. Firstly, it was essential that the new system integrate with our current SunSystems infrastructure. Secondly, we needed a system that would have the flexibility to meet the special requirements of our operations. Our company is involved in the provision of facilities; it had to have the capability to add in the hiring of kit. This could not be a vanilla purchase order system...
.. LAKE did not give us a hard sell. They demonstrated quiet confidence without being overly aggressive. They took on board some of the challenges we had in our selection and, ultimately, came back with a solution that I believe will meet our operational requirements."
Adrian Howard, General Manager for LAKE, concludes with the following comments:
"We welcome the inclusion of [Company Name] to our ever expanding range of Proactis customers. The combination of Proactis and Infor SunSystems is a compelling combination for anyone considering Spend Control."
