June 29, 2023

By automating 75%+ of sourcing tasks, Fairmarkit gives Novozymes stakeholders more time to focus on strategic initiatives

Today, Fairmarkit, the automated sourcing solution transforming the procurement of products and services for enterprises, announces Novozymes, the global market leader in biological solutions, as a new customer realizing cost savings goals, managing risk and continued growth with Fairmarkit. 

Fairmarkit’s automated solution equips procurement and supply chain teams with the tools they need to more effectively source necessary products and services, while significantly reducing manual efforts, increasing cost savings and enabling stronger compliance and policy adherence. As a Fairmarkit customer, Novozymes is uniquely positioned to improve efficiencies, free up employees to do more critical and complex tasks and work more closely with external product and service providers.

“The mutual trust that we developed with the Fairmarkit team during the selection phase made the decision to work together an easy one,” said Louise Noer, Director of Indirect Sourcing at Novozymes. “We’ve already implemented and started using the platform, and we’re excited to not only address our currently dormant spend, but give more attention to corporate spend with existing resources, helping us expand our footprint and achieve long-term success.”

The ever-evolving business landscape demands agility, and processes in the procurement world are outdated and inefficient. The Fairmarkit process is simpler and easier for buyers to use because it streamlines all product sourcing through AI and data analytics-based recommendations. As more sourcing inquiries are run, the platform makes further customized recommendations, allowing companies to make more informed decisions about their spend in the future. 

“We’re honored to have a customer of Novozymes’ stature and are thrilled to help enable growth of their company and scale procurement operations as they expand,” said Kevin Frechette, Co-founder and CEO of Fairmarkit. “We are thrilled to find Novozymes best-in-class, diverse suppliers, helping them realize cost savings goals and meet their ESG and DEI goals.”
