Mercateo Unite cooperates with BeNeering
– Mercateo Unite, the neutral B2B networking platform, will complement BeNeering's portfolio. BeNeering is a specialist provider of SAP software with a focus on web shop design for group purchasing. The partnership was announced today by BeNeering and Unite Network AG. The new solution will be available to BeNeering customers in the first quarter of 2019.
Mercateo Unite and BeNeering cooperate in Europe: The first voices on the cooperation were collected at the 53rd BME Symposium in Berlin.
Dr Bernd Schönwälder, board member at Unite Network AG, which operates the networking platform within the framework of the Mercateo Group, explained the reasons for the new alliance: “BeNeering’s expertise, especially with regard to SAP software, coupled with the neutral networking platform Mercateo Unite, opens up completely new possibilities for buyers. Users of BeNeering solutions will have access to a provider network for procurement, which digitally supports networking without displacing personal business relationships. The straightforward integration of suppliers into BeNeering’s system via the Mercateo Unite infrastructure will accelerate procurement processes.”
Christoph Moll, Managing Director of BeNeering, also expects strong impulses for his company from the cooperation: “By partnering with Unite, we are integrating a new marketplace into the BeNeering Cloud. Through Unite, our customers in Europe will have access to a much wider range of products that significantly exceeds the catalogues negotiated by the purchasing department. Thanks to the ground-breaking API connection, search results can be integrated in a user-friendly manner – without system interruption for the users. Another advantage for our customers is the possibility of ordering using the single vendor model.” BeNeering was founded in 2007 and is now successfully established in 60 countries. The company’s software is used by well-known customers such as Deutsche Post DHL, Telekom, Beiersdorf and Lufthansa.
Dr Bernd Schönwälder stresses the importance of such partnerships for the Mercateo Unite networking platform: “Integrating Unite as an independent and neutral infrastructure for digitally networked business relationships benefits many vendors in the area of e-procurement, as well as sourcing and spend management solutions. At the end of the day, the customers always win.”
