MILWAUKEE — Wisconsin Electric Power Co. and Wisconsin Gas LLC, collectively known as We Energies, has selected Frictionless Commerce for relationship management software to automate, track and execute its sourcing methodology.
We Energies serves more than 1.1 million electric customers in Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and more than one million natural gas customers in Wisconsin. As part of a sourcing transformation, the utility’s Supply Chain team developed a seven-step sourcing process and required a software solution to embed this methodology.
“This process discipline is a key part of our strategy to work effectively with the most appropriate suppliers to bring value to our company and our customers,” said James Baillon, Vice President of Administrative Services and Supply Chain, We Energies.
We Energies plans to track the entire portfolio of savings opportunities through project management, increase efficiencies through the automation and standardization of its sourcing methodology, and source the full spectrum of spend categories, including MRO and services.
