Region of Southern Denmark is an administrative body that supervises the region’s healthcare institutions and health services. It has 26,000 employees across 14 hospitals, with more than 200 suppliers.

With staggering logistical and tactical requirements for procurement, it needed a system that could provide a real-time 360° view of supplier performance.

After the implementation of LeanLinking’s system, Region Southern Denmark was able to obtain complete visibility and insight into supplier performance, which facilitated quality maintenance and timely delivery of products and services being delivered to hospitals across the region.

“Region Southern Denmark has chosen LeanLinking because they provide an innovative and user-friendly solution that enables stakeholders to easily give feedback on their experiences with suppliers, solve supplier problems faster, and rate suppliers accordingly. The solution also enables the central procurement team to follow up on stakeholders’ feedback and initiate valuable improvement projects together with suppliers if needed.”
– Annette Bjørn, Chief Procurement Officer, Region Southern Denmark
pHARMA
Drive Efficiency & Innovation
The healthcare and pharma industry has a broad and intricate supply chain that requires skillful management and governance. In a highly regulated industry, supplier performance and other procurement activities must be constantly monitored.

Its products, equipment, and services are vital for societal health and well-being, and their delayed delivery can have devastating consequences. The importance of reduced time to market and prompt delivery of products and services were highlighted further by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

LeanLinking drives operational efficiency and innovation through data-driven feedback. This level of transparency cultivates a culture of robust collaboration and continuous improvement among suppliers and stakeholders.

MANUFACTURING
Ensure Supply Chain Resilience
Factories can’t run optimally without smooth delivery from suppliers. Material scarcity and late deliveries can halt production indefinitely while a decline in the quality of raw materials results in inferior final products, adversely affecting a company’s reputation and bottom line.

Procurement costs (external spend) account for over 50% of most manufacturing firms’ Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), making supplier management crucial for maximizing profitability and working capital management.

LeanLinking combines the power of stakeholder insights with system data on supplier logistics, quality, innovation, and responsiveness to reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and improve materials availability, production efficiency, and working capital optimization.
Wavin is the leading supplier of plastic pipe systems for the drainage, water, and plumbing sectors in Europe. It has 10,500 employees in 40+ countries with offices and factories across Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and the Americas.

The company views its suppliers as partners in product development and in the continuous pursuit of universally viable solutions. However, despite its existing systems, gathering data from which to develop relevant feedback for its suppliers proved to be a challenge.  

Wavin switched to LeanLinking in 2013 – and the results were instantaneous. Stakeholders and suppliers alike gained a wider perspective and greater value from a more comprehensive supplier performance picture.

“When everyone in the operational part of procurement uses the system at full-scale for reviews and sharing information, that’s when the benefits really present themselves. The solution means greater transparency in our supply chain and better relationships with suppliers themselves.” – Carsten Christensen, Procurement Manager, Wavin

Good Food Group produces a wide range of quality food products under its own brands and for private labels, which are sold in 75 international markets. It has more than 550 employees in 25 locations and 9 factories worldwide.  

With large volumes of various ingredients from 700+ active suppliers across sites, a small, geographically dispersed team, and a lack of automation–Good Food Group's need for a robust supplier management program was business-critical. 

Faced with multi-fold challenges, Good Food Group partnered with LeanLinking to significantly augment its capability to manage supplier compliance, performance, and quality across the group without having to add resources due to budget restrictions.

After implementation of LeanLinking’s integrated supplier management solution, Good Food Group was able to drive higher value in its food safety, quality and performance-relevant supplier engagements through better quality, improved supplier performance, reduced risk exposure, and higher efficiencies.

“LeanLinking’s supplier management platform forms the technology backbone underlying Good Food Group’s supplier quality and performance practices, enabling us to collaborate in more effective ways internally and with our suppliers. LeanLinking’s comprehensive and integrated supplier management functionality is ideal for Quality and Procurement teams looking to drive improved business outcomes and better relationships with an easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use solution, without disturbing the business.” 
– Freddy Nielsen, Global Head of Quality, Good Food Group
FOOD & BEVERAGE
Secure Competitive Advantage
From fast food and fine dining to takeaways and groceries, the industry relies on a multi-tiered system of suppliers to carry out the production, preparation, processing, packaging, and distribution of food and drinks. Supplier efficiency and strict adherence to safety and sanitary guidelines are crucial to profitability.  

Advanced technology in supplier management allows food and beverage manufacturers to explore more efficient processes to reduce costs, mitigate risks, and ensure compliance.

LeanLinking maximizes supplier relations by carefully tracking all aspects of each supplier’s performance, and making them readily accessible to stakeholders and suppliers for assessment in one easy-to-use platform.
Wholesale and Retail
Achieve Reliable Growth
The wholesale industry directly affects other businesses that rely on their products to meet their customer demand. Wholesalers should ensure that suppliers are fulfilling contractual obligations on product quality, sourcing compliance, and delivery timelines – making supplier management essential.

As well, supplier costs are in excess of 60% of revenue for most wholesale companies. Thus, optimizing price, costs, and supplier-related processes can have a substantial impact on profitability and working capital management.

LeanLinking enables proactive monitoring and management with automated KPI updates on each supplier and prompt, real-time reporting when problems arise. This reduces reaction times while lowering risks and total costs.
Carl Ras is a family-owned wholesale business and one of the largest suppliers of hardware, plumbing, and heating equipment in Denmark. It has 350 employees across 16 wholesale centers.  

Its wholesale operations needed a company-wide view of supplier service and delivery performance, solutions for non-conformance issues, a supplier cockpit for performance tracking, and the ability to quantify the impact and cost of failure and seek recovery where necessary.  

After integrating LeanLinking into its procurement activities, the company was able to identify and rectify 250+ non-conformance issues and share reports with suppliers every month, with response and closure time reduced from an average of 3 days to 1 day. Time to register goods receipt error was reduced by 50% and supplier responsiveness to new standards was accelerated.  

Also, supplier review meetings shed light on issues previously unknown to procurement resulting in across-the-board improvements in supplier performance and management.
