Huntington Ingalls & Perfect Commerce Team Up to Improve Spend Management

NEWPORT NEWS, Va.-Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS), a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII), is rooted in Hampton Road’s community as a pillar of history and tradition; today, Perfect Commerce is proud to be a part of this monolith in the community by successfully implementing HII’s eProcurement solution.

For more than 125 years, NNS has been sustaining the local community and the country with its expert design and manufacturing of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and submarines. The NNS is the sole authority for designing, building and refueling naval ships and submarines. Both HII and Perfect Commerce are members of the Hampton Road’s community, partnering together in an effort to stimulate the local economy and lower operating costs to help conserve government and military funds.

“It is wonderful to have HII as part of our community,” states Hamp Wall, Perfect Commerce CEO. “Perfect Commerce has many international customers; however, there is something special in working to provide for such a large employer of our neighborhood.”

Perfect Commerce, pioneer of Software as a service, is lending their expertise in eProcurement and spend management to provide tangible savings and seamless supplier networking while eliminating rogue spending.

“Perfect Commerce has wanted to work with our neighbors in shipbuilding for years,” says Hamp. “Huntington Ingalls is a key part of our local economy and we are proud to be a part of it.” Perfect Commerce will help HII manage over 500 users and approvers, 400 addresses and three different workflows.

Procurement Manager allows for fully automated processes, supply chain enhancements and increased spend under management. With the utilization of Perfect Commerce’s Open Supplier Network, HII can search supplier catalogs with more efficiency and effectiveness while managing contracts and driving down one-time buys, all with an enterprise-wide suite. HII’s procurement department will have more indirect non-shipboard spend visibility and streamlined purchasing; resulting in measurable cost savings and department cohesiveness.
