Vision Excellence Award Goes to Rolls-Royce Power Systems

Global Price Management Wins

Vienna | Friedrichshafen, April 05, 2017 – MTU Friedrichshafen, the core business of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, has set the course for global transparency in Purchasing with a digital purchasing platform. The innovative concept that harmonizes price and supplier data throughout the company has been selected by POOL4TOOL as the winner of the Vision Excellence Award, which is awarded annually to the most innovative client project. The award ceremony took place last week at the Digital Procurement Day in Vienna for an audience of more than 100 visitors. (

The solution specialist POOL4TOOL hosted the Digital Procurement Day last week. More than 100 participants from Purchasing and business came from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland to take part in the event in Vienna. The procurement specialist POOL4TOOL discussed how the challenges of digitization in Purchasing will be managed in the future by using intelligent tools and through process integration. The festive award ceremony for the Vision Excellence Award took place at the evening event. MTU Friedrichshafen, the core business of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, won the award for their global price management.

“Global price management is an innovative initiative that will allow us to achieve significant savings in the future. The intelligent POOL4TOOL purchasing platform helps us coordinate our global prices and brings us one step closer to a full 360° overview over our suppliers,” explained Alexander Dangle, the Vice President of Purchasing at Rolls-Royce Power Systems, after receiving the award. “We didn’t have a problem, we had a dream. This award is for the whole team. In POOL4TOOL, we found a partner that will support us long-term in our efforts to digitize our purchasing processes. We look forward to continuing our work together.” (

Global Standards, Local Flexibility

The challenge for the Purchasing department at MTU Friedrichshafen is enabling quick access to available supplier and price data that is not fully harmonized because they are distributed across four different SAP systems. The solution was to create a user-friendly master data management system in one central location that would automatically transfer the information to the various SAP systems. In order to ensure that the same conditions were being met globally for purchases, the department needed a software solution to make information about the suppliers and their prices transparent and easily available in all of the company’s locations. The intelligent POOL4TOOL purchasing platform combined with a complex distribution logic divided into global and local price components allows MTU Friedrichshafen to purchase items at the same prices throughout the entire company, while also maintaining local flexibility.
