ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - August 07, 2014) - b-pack announced that RCI Banque groupe RENAULT, one of the largest issuers of auto loan asset-backed securities in Europe and part of the group Renault-Nissan, has successfully implemented b-pack Cloud based SaaS solution to help reduce costs by optimizing their purchasing activities and outsourcing their account payable activities.
When evaluating Procure-to-Pay solutions, RCI Banque groupe RENAULT wanted a platform that could manage the complete procure-to-pay process while being fully compatible with SAP ECC6. They desired to automate and control the full process against their budgets, from the cart to the invoice using web-based solutions for ease of deployment, as well as outsource the invoice process for all their spend, mainly based of services. Due to strong audit constraints, they looked for robust audit trail and workflow management associated with out of the box advanced KPI and reporting capabilities.
For JC Labarre, group purchasing director at RCI Banque, installing the b-pack SaaS Cloud solution at RCI Banque is the opportunity to gain benefits of a transverse outsourcing project for the benefit of Accounting, Finance and Procurement departments.
b-pack supported all of RCI Banque's requirements by integrating to its SAP platform, completing the following modules: eProcurement, contract and budget management, vendor rationalization, spend analysis, invoicing and outsourcing paper invoices, using Readsoft online, which is fully embedded in the b-pack SaaS cloud solution, as their e-invoicing solution.
"b-pack has a very successful record helping financial reduce costs," said Xavier Pierre-Bez, Chief Business Development Officer and Co-Founder. "We're delighted that RCI is using b-pack to simplify and better control their purchasing process, while outsourcing their Accounts Payable; This project being a pilot in the group, we have worked closely as a partner to ensure the success of the deployment."

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
