Central America’s leading agro-industrial corporation successfully launches source to contract digital transformation.
Consus, a leading global supply chain solutions provider announced today that Pantaleon, an agro-industrial organization dedicated to the responsible processing of sugarcane for the production of sugar, molasses, alcohols and energy with headquarters in Guatemala, has gone live on Ivalua’s Sourcing, Supplier Management, Contract Management, PR/Catalog solution in conjunction with Consus, which implemented the solution.
Pantaleon’s team of more than 20,700 employees in Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Brazil and United States, contributes to reach an annual production of 1.24 million tons of sugar. As a group, they are leaders in the Central American region in sugar production and rank amongst the ten most important in Latin America. Their products participate in local and international markets, with more than forty export destinations, where they supply food industries and refineries.
“Pantaleon chose Ivalua and Consus for their deep capabilities in source-to pay software and implementation. Additionally, the Group was looking for a trusted partner aligned with their “customer experience first” vision to jointly disrupt current procurement processes and adopt best practices globally. In Pantaleon´s criteria IVALUA is the only provider that combines user friendliness with a robust and flexible Source to Pay experience”.
Rodrigo Tejada, Head of Procurement
“We worked resiliently with Consus to achieve the GoLive date. During the project we developed a deep understanding of the tool and a great relationship with Consus executives who were always willing to go the extra mile for the project´s success”.
Jose Penagos, Head of Project Implementation, Procurement
“It is well known that –A project is complete when it starts working for you, rather than you working for it…We are so excited we have reached that stage. It’s been an enriching journey with a highly enthusiastic and determined team under the exemplary leadership of Rodrigo; together we overcame all odds to achieve this milestone with rollouts to 3 countries and 2000+ users!! We are hoping the solution brings in improved governance, compliance and transparency to their procurement processes, providing overall best value with information centralized in one platform. Wishing them more success and fulfillment always.”
Sonal Shukla, Managing Partner, Consus
