We are proud to have as our clients some of the best-of-breed companies across different business areas all around Europe, from both the public and private sectors. Our services have over 200 000 contract management users, and 25 000 tenderings have been made through them, with over 24 billion euros worth of purchases made.
In our work with hundreds of organizations implementing e-Sourcing solutions, we have seen how companies thrive when they focus their investments on automising manual procurement processes and contract management.
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.

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.

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.

Helen improved its control over its tendering documents
Helen Oy is one of Finland’s largest energy companies. Providing electricity, heat, cooling and various kinds of energy services to more than 400,000 customers in all parts of Finland, Helen has been Cloudia’s customer since 2012. Cloudia Sourcing has been used very actively at Helen, given that, to date, nearly 600 procurements have been put out to tender.
Indeed, the reason why Helen started using Cloudia Sourcing was precisely to make the administration of competitive tendering processes more effective. The company wanted to facilitate the processing and archiving of tendering documents as well as the standardisation of calls for tenders and tender comparisons.
“The digitalisation with Cloudia Sourcing has simplified the opening of a competitive tendering, among other things. We save time and costs now that the amount of manual work has been reduced,” says Riitta Juutilainen, procurement specialist at Helen Oy.
Structured tenders reduce the workload
According to Juutilainen, the utilisation of tender templates prepared using Cloudia Sourcing has simplified and unified Helen’s procurement processes.
“The tenders we receive are more in line with the call for tenders because the system requires that the tenderers answer the selected questions and download the requested attachments as part of the call for tenders. This makes our process more effective.
Cloudia Sourcing has allowed Helen Oy to improve the effectiveness of its operations related to competitive tendering, get better control over its procurement processes and clarify its operating models.
“I can wholeheartedly recommend Cloudia Tendering especially for those contracting entities that want to receive tenders in a pre-defined format and digitalise the procurement process.”

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.
