Mars Veterinary Health significantly reduced the time and effort required to transition key suppliers from their outdated homegrown procurement system to their new Coupa eProcurement software. The company can also onboard a broader range of new suppliers without requiring them to undertake complex IT projects to support integrating with Mars Veterinary Health’s processes and
eProcurement solution. TradeCentric:
- Provided cost savings to Mars Veterinary Health and their suppliers with minimal development to integrate with Coupa
- Drove more spend through Mars Veterinary Health’s procurement system
- Expedited the ordering and invoicing cycle time
- Reduced manual errors
By partnering with TradeCentric, Mars Veterinary Health’s clinic teams save time sourcing key products they need to provide state-of-the-art veterinary care, which translates to a meaningful time savings for their veterinary professionals.
The first phase of supplier deployment was so successful that Mars Veterinary Health chose to have all electronic suppliers begin automating their procure-to-pay processes. As a result, the initial project’s scope expanded to 40 additional vendors, including Staples, McKesson, Amazon Business, Henry Schein and Merck.
Moving forward, Mars Veterinary Health will leverage the TradeCentric Platform to continue meeting suppliers where they are in terms of technical capability, with the end goal of expanding their reach – both within their procurement organization as well as the service they are able to provide pets across the country.
