The implementation of Silex has not only allowed Procurement to accelerate and facilitate the identification of new suppliers, but also to streamline processes and improve information sharing. Data is automatically collected and pooled to capitalize on knowledge.
VINCI Energies can thus address strategic CSR issues such as reducing carbon footprint and improving environmental performance. For example, buyers can more easily identify suppliers with environmental labels or certifications, such as the RGE label (Reconnu Garant de l’Environnement). In order to develop the social component of their purchasing strategy, they can also target companies in the Social Economy sector, in particular adapted companies or ESATs (Etablissement et service d’aide par le travail) in their search.
VINCI Energies also uses Silex’s enriched supplier data to monitor its reputational impact and comply with new regulations, such as the duty of vigilance towards its suppliers.
