Ivalua, the leading global¬†Spend Management Cloud¬†provider and Consus, a leading procurement solutions provider, today announced that MUSIC Group, a professional audio and music products company based in China, has selected Ivalua’s Source-to-Pay solution in conjunction with Consus services to achieve cost savings and drive transparency across their procurement operations.

MUSIC Group’s portfolio features manufacturing and design companies with products ranging from audio console, signal processing and audio equipment, live sound equalizers, power amplifiers, and more. The company’s sole focus is to “Enable Life Changing Experiences” for internal and external stakeholders; the Group requires a faster go-to market in response to changing customer requirements.

The Group chose Ivalua and Consus for their deep capabilities in source-to pay. Additionally, the Group was looking for a trusted partner aligned with their “customer experience first” vision to jointly disrupt current processes and adopt best practices globally.

“When looking for a supplier, we are first looking for a trusted and long-term partner rather than just an implementation partner” said UliBehringer, Tribal Leader / CEO at MUSIC Group. “MUSIC Group’s Vision and sole purpose is to empower our people to provide life changing experiences for our customers. We are very pleased to have found an alignment in our Vision and Values with Ivalua and Consus, making them the ideal partners on our mutual, long-term and enjoyable journey.”
