Business Finland Testimonial – Simplified procurement processes with Cloudia solutions

The service has made it easier to use contracts correctly

We use Cloudia services in almost all our procurement. Tendering, contract period management, and real-time follow-up have become significantly easier, thanks to the directions and automation of the service. It has given us more time to spend on planning and developing procurement. This has had a clear positive impact on savings and risk management.

Helsinki is the capital and the largest city of Finland.

A clear decrease in workload

Fimea started using Cloudia Contract in the fall 2017 and Cloudia Sourcing in the spring 2018. Fimea’s Finance Director Esko Kiiski says that when acquiring a contract management system, the goal was to facilitate contract monitoring and reporting.

“Searching for contracts no longer takes a lot of time; instead, the user can easily find the contracts they want.”

Add professionalism to procurement with Cloudia Sourcing

The National Institute for Health and Welfare has used Cloudia Sourcing for tendering its procurements since January 2018.

Miika Kivinen, a procurement expert at THL, says that the organization was looking for a system to make its procurement process electronic so that the digitalization of the procurement process would always work in an efficient and professional manner, from planning to signing a contract.

Services that are easy to recommend

The partnership started because Business Finland had to digitalize their procurement processes. They didn’t have that kind of know-how within the company, so Cloudia was chosen to assist them.

The services Cloudia have provided consist of two separate platforms, Cloudia Sourcing and Cloudia Contract. Cloudia Sourcing is a digitalized sourcing system and Cloudia Contract is used for contract management.

– We needed new systems and support in their use. We couldn’t have developed this kind of software by ourselves, says Eriika Autio, who is a Senior Director at Procurement Unit in Business Finland.

North Karelia has saved hundreds of thousands of euros with the online auction

The North Karelia Procurement Office is also a pioneer in utilising online auctions and has used the Cloudia auction since 2013 (the name of the unit at that time was Joensuu District Procurement Office).

“We believe that the online auction had a significant impact on prices, so we decided to try it out immediately, once it was possible both legally and technically,” tells Procurement Manager Mika Purmonen.

The North Karelia Procurement Office is one of the most active users of the online auction and has achieved significant savings in doing so.

The sought-after savings have been achieved

Based on my earlier good experiences, I knew I could renew Caruna’s tendering model and make it electronic using Cloudia’s service. Cloudia services deliver us the process efficiency, openness of operations, and total savings we seek after, by providing comprehensive process control from tendering to contract lifespan management.

Caruna is Finland’s largest electricity distribution company.

Efficiency in the procurement process

We use the Cloudia Sourcing for all procurements above the threshold as well as a large part of our smallscale procurements. In addition to Finavia, our subsidiary Airpro is also using Cloudia Sourcing. Cloudia’s digital and automated solution has intensified our procurement processes, increased accuracy in the control of deadlines for tenders, and thus simplified our work significantly.

Finavia is a Finnish airport operator.

Lekolar-Printel Oy has used Cloudia Marketplace since 2012. Over the years, Lekolar has prepared hundreds of tenders in the Marketplace, significantly improving its participation in competitive tendering.

“The calls for tenders are now clearer than before, showing at a glance the sections that must be filled out and the questions that must be answered. Cloudia’s Supplier Portal has clearly improved the process, resulting in better and clearer calls for tenders.”

Digitalisation makes processes more effective

Tenders received in digital format are easy to manage, and nobody needed to scan and copy the tender documents. The process was made as much as 15% more effective than before.

Cloudia Sourcing makes global tendering effective

We have a lot of suppliers from abroad, from whom we purchase for example supercomputers and other hardware. We are also involved in developing the weather service for emerging countries by consulting and helping them the best we can. The difference between the Nordic countries and emerging countries, however, may be very high in the use of electronic systems. The Cloudia customer support has helped us  with any culture differencies, which has been very effective.

Digitalized procurement saves time

Cloudia Sourcing has intensified and facilitated, above all, the handling of procurement documents, including the verification of ESPD forms. The biggest benefit of the system has been the time savings, which we estimated to be around 25%.

Transparency in procurement processes

One of the world’s leading biotechnology companies, Biogen, is now carrying out their procurement processes with Cloudia Sourcing. Biogen chose Cloudia to digitalize their previously manually handled processes in a way, that all procurement data can be found and compared as easily as possible. In addition to centralized data, Biogen is hoping to find more suitable partners to their tenderings.
