Paris, December 21 2017 – Capgemini today announced that its procurement function has been recognised for its industry ‘best practice’ at the EIPM-Peter Kraljic Awards 2017 for “Value Creation through Building a Competitive Advantage.” The annual awards program highlights excellence in purchasing organisations that act as role models, delivering outstanding performance to their company and demonstrating a high level of creativity, innovation and respect for the environment and society. Capgemini was presented with the award during the EIPM Annual Purchasing conference in Archamps, France.
The EIPM-Peter Kraljic Award is one of the most prestigious awards to recognise procurement functions. Capgemini procurement was noted for the transformation, globalisation and success of its worldwide function.
Emmanuel Erba, Chief Procurement Officer, Capgemini Group said, “We are honoured to receive this prestigious EIPM-Peter Kraljic Award. It illustrates the success of the Groupwide transformation and globalisation our procurement function has undergone, and a recognition of the value that we are now creating for our Capgemini stakeholders across the globe.”
The companies who take part in the Awards use EIPM’s on-line assessment tool BEE-BEST® to benchmark their own practices against those of best in class companies. A rigorous fact-based nomination process complements this application. Based on the content of the assessment, finalists are then assessed during a site visit and winners are selected by a Jury composed of specialists and presided by Dr. Peter Kraljic, creator of the Kraljic portfolio purchasing model.
“Congratulations to the Capgemini team. Value creation is extremely important and it needs to be sustained by a sound competitive advantage. Capgemini has succeeded in creating this competitive advantage,” noted Dr Peter Kraljic, Honorary President of the EIPM Awards for Excellence. “We need to think not only about the supply chain but about the full value chain from the last customer to the last supplier.”
For more than two decades, the EIPM Annual Conference has been promoting critical thinking through a series of discussions focused on Purchasing Excellence, Talent Management, Innovation and Value Creation along with many other topics.
