Cloud-based e-procurement saves the SmartCity of Bergen €1.3 million a year

The city of Bergen considers itself one of the first SmartCities in the world. The mindset is one of long-term outlook and planning. In fact, it is the only city in Europe to have been invited to be a member of the European Climate Forum (EFC). As a SmartCity, Bergen is highly focused on maximum energy efficiency and being completely carbon neutral in the near future; it’s no surprise that they apply the same progressive mindset to their procurement process.

The Challenge:

  • Centralize indirect procurement across the 350 business units of the municipality

  • Increase process efficiency and contract compliance to reduce costs

  • Establish a self-service procurement system

See how the SmartCity Bergen was able to increase contract compliance and increase their average cost savings per contract by 10%.
