Milan – November 12th, 2018
SupplHi, the Vendor Management platform for industrial equipment and services and Hexagon PPM, a leading provider of asset lifecycle solutions for design, construction, and operation of industrial facilities launched a collaboration.
The first milestone in the collaboration between the two providers is the adoption and implementation by Hexagon PPM to its Intergraph Smart® Materials software of the unique SupplHi Standard Categorization that covers all types of supplies from critical equipment and services – for onshore and offshore activities in the broad plant engineering industries – to the indirect purchases. This step of the collaboration allows Smart® Materials Clients to work with fully populated Standard Categorization developed by SupplHi.
“We confirm that Hexagon PPM is at the forefront of data-centric engineering design and information management by coupling SupplHi’s innovative digital platform for vendor qualification within the process, power, and marine industries with our widely used Intergraph Smart® Materials software. As a first step in the Alliance, the unique SupplHi Standard Categorization is made available to each Smart Materials client, enlarging our global community of buyers and promoting the efficient exchange and reuse of information.” said Maurizio Granata, Business Development Executive EMIA Materials, Costs, Execution Management Solutions Process, Power & Marine of Hexagon PPM.
While Hexagon PPM sets the de facto standard for engineering and procurement integration and work-processes, SupplHi – by leveraging on its industry-specific Standard Model and by providing Quality assurance to the information provided by Vendors on SupplHi – allows Buyer organizations make more informed decisions providing a unique combination in an Engineering and Procurement integrated environment able to replace internal Vendor Management systems.
