Success Stories
“Unleashing value and synergies across companies in a global organization”
Since October 2022, the partnership between Amer Sports and Mercanis has ushered in a new era of procurement innovation and efficiency.

Within the first quarter of 2023, Amer Sports expanded its sourcing event scheduling from 4 to an impressive 31 sourcing events - an average increase from 4 to 11 sourcing events per month. The platform is adaptable and enables procurement at all scales, from six-figure tactical projects to strategic sourcing initiatives of up to 2 EUR million.
The Mercanis platform has also enabled Amer Sports to diversify its outsourcing strategy. Six key categories have emerged, including IT with a leading 63% share and integral areas such as marketing and professional services. With Mercanis' help, Amer Sports consistently received at least three competitive bids for each procurement need, strengthening strategic sourcing and expanding capabilities.

Most importantly, Mercanis has given Amer Sports the advantage of global visibility. Regardless of location, Amer Sports' procurement managers now have the ability to track all procurement activity in real time and keep a constant eye on it. This visibility encompasses both tactical and strategic sourcing around the world, uniting Amer Sports' brands in a globally transparent network. Mercanis has also streamlined processes by automating tenders and making global procurement management efficient and effective.

Overall, Mercanis not only improves Amer Sports' sourcing and procurement strategies, but also provides a comprehensive overview at a global level. The collaboration has successfully enabled Amer Sports to gain transparency, automation and efficiency in its global sourcing activities.
"The simplicity of Mercanis has enabled us to integrate our stakeholders into the tendering process by using the platform as a self-service solution for smaller tendering projects. It further has allowed us to take the procurement function in a more strategic direction without adding complexity for category experts."
Sven Novak, Director of Global Indirect Procurement at Amer Sports Corporation
