A sincere thank you to Taulia for rolling out the red carpet for Lavante (and a number of other partners and sponsors) this week at their annual user conference, Taulia Connect.  Set in the Park Central hotel in San Francisco’s financial district and packed with over 500 end-users, customers, experts, thought leaders, partners, analysts, and more – this year’s conference was hailed by Taulians and other attendees as the most informative installation of the annual event to date.  Having just spent the last three days on site at the show – I agree.  Truly, this was a first class event all the way around.  (Kudos to Taulia’s marketing team on a job very well done!)

Setting a tone of  “the market is posing a great opportunity, but we can’t do this alone,” Taulia’s CEO Cedric Bru (as well as other key executives) spoke in depth about Taulia’s intent to partner with other best-of-breed industry solutions to best serve their growing client base.  Lavante was very appreciative to be highlighted on several occasions as both a key partner and a key part of Taulia’s strategy to deliver more value to their customers.  To this end, Lavante founder Joe Flynn was invited to join Taulia co-founder Maex Ament on stage during his opening day address where they both openly discussed ways in which Lavante (and other partners) could and would enhance the Taulia offering.

Finextra.com covered the Lavante/Taulia partnership in an article posted earlier today observing that “because Taulia teamed with Lavante, the leading provider of cloud-based supplier information management, Taulia’s customers will be able to fill the gaps in their contact database, mitigate supplier risk, and improve compliance across the entire supply chain.”  The sentiment perfectly captures the value of the partnership and we are excited to further develop our joint offering over the next several months and drive continued and expanding value to both Lavante’s and Taulia’s clients alike.
