GTT’s Purchasing and Finance Team-Up to Implement Procure-to-Pay From Determine, Inc.

Determine, Inc. a pioneering leader in global Source-to-Pay and Enterprise Contract Lifecycle Management (ECLM) Cloud Platform solutions, announced that GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz), a leading engineering company in containment systems for the shipping and storage in cryogenic conditions of LNG (liquefied natural gas), has chosen Determine’s Procure-to-Pay solution.

For more than 50 years, GTT has been designing and marketing technologies combining operational efficiency and safety to equip LNG carriers, floating LNG units and multi-gas transport vessels. It also offers solutions for land-based tanks and the use of LNG as a fuel for ship propulsion, as well as a wide range of services.

Simple User Interface: The deciding factor in selecting Determine’s Procurement Solution
Among the procurement tools available on the market, the Determine Cloud Platform stood out for its:

-Intuitive user interface
-Seamless interface with GTT’s existing accounting system
-Ability to manage complex business processes
-Ease of configurability, giving platform administrators a high level of autonomy and process adaptability

“Determine is an easy-to-use tool, and ergonomics have been an important choice. A month after go-live, the first returns are positive. Our users emphasize the ease of use and the time savings provided by Determine. They particularly appreciate the ability to approve purchase requests in two clicks directly from their emails.”
— Pauline Gerard, Purchasing Manager, GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz)

Purchasing and Finance Collaboration: A Key Factor for Project Success
The Determine implementation at GTT extends from Purchasing to Finance. To ensure the smooth running of the project and that requests from both departments are taken into account, a Finance Manager has been appointed in addition to a Purchasing Project Manager. This collaborative responsibility ensures that the solution workflows and settings match the needs of each functional area.

“Our Purchasing and Finance Departments worked closely together to ensure that the tool would meet their key issues and criteria. Being at the initiation of this project, Purchasing included all the specifications related to the Finance department. There were many meetings, giving each department the freedom to make decisions about the tool related to their area of responsibility.”
— Pauline Gerard, Purchasing Manager, GTT (Gaztransport & Technigaz)

“The strength of GTT has been its ability to put in place concrete actions that enable successful Purchasing / Finance collaboration to ensure the success of this project. We are happy to support the digital transformation of GTT and contribute to the alignment and success of their Purchasing and Finance departments.”
— Gerard Dahan, Global Chief Revenue and Marketing Officer, Determine, Inc.
