Verian Takes Over the Controls

Signature Flight Support Group implements Verian Technologies' ProcureIT

Charlotte, NC  November 15, 2001  Verian Technologies, a provider of Web-based procurement and materials-management technology, today announced the implementation of ProcureIT at Signature Flight Support Corp., a BBA Aviation company.

Using Verian Technologies' ProcureIT, an enterprise-wide e-procurement and materials management solution, Signature Flight's 44 base locations will procure goods and services independently, yet they will be able to leverage the buying power of corporate contracts. Signature Flight Support will be installing ProcureIT at all U.S. locations over the next three months.

George Andrews, Signature Flight Support Corp.'s director of product supply, said there are many factors that contributed to the company selecting Verian's ProcureIT. "Due to Signature Flight's high growth rate, it has become a critical that we manage purchasing in a controlled and efficient way. We also need the flexibility to redefine business rules as needed and the ability for each base location to manage their purchasing independently, but take advantage of corporate supplier contracts that are already in place. "

"We are pleased to deliver a comprehensive e-procurement solution that will provide a tangible, short-term return-on-investment for Signature Flight Support Corp.," said Tehseen Ali, CEO of Verian Technologies. "Signature can expect to see even more significant returns as a result from increased flexibility in the management of their purchasing process, the availability of better and more timely data for decision support, and enterprise-wide control."
