The Shelby Group Now Certified on Vinimaya Solutions

Spend Management Consultancy Now Versed on New, Innovative Supplier Enablement Solution for eProcurement

CORNWALL, N.Y., and SHELTON, Conn., July 12 / - The Shelby Group, LLC, a leading Spend Management consultancy, and Vinimaya, Inc., a leading provider of supplier enablement solutions for eProcurement, announce that through its affiliates, The Shelby Group is now certified to recommend Vinimaya's innovative offerings, including the patent-pending ViniSyndicate Catalog Integration System(TM), to its clients.

Shelby offers a complete range of consulting and implementation services to deliver successful eSourcing, eProcurement & Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) solutions to the Global Fortune 1000 community. Shelby's clients include the world's largest and most respected global corporations, including several Fortune top 50 corporations, among them energy companies, retailers, media conglomerates and computer hardware vendors. These are a representative mix of Shelby's customer base and level of service.

"When recommending solutions to our clients that will help them meet their eProcurement, eSourcing and Supplier related business objectives, we have a responsibility to maintain the highest level of knowledge, familiarity and expertise with regard to the market-leading solution providers and their offerings," stated Paul Bartko, Managing Partner of The Shelby Group. "We now have that high level of knowledge, familiarity and expertise in-house for Vinimaya's Buyer and Supplier Solutions, which are unique when compared to anything in the market today."

Vinimaya Buyer and Supplier Solutions, featuring the ViniSyndicate Catalog Integration System(TM), are based on their patent pending Intelligent Agent Server (IAS)(TM) platform, which uses real-time, non-invasive, distributed Internet searching and automated high performance data parsing technology. This technology eliminates the need for large, centralized catalog databases; data cleansing services and the invasive XML Punchout approach used in conventional supplier enablement offerings. ViniSyndicate(TM) is targeted toward companies using eProcurement systems such as Ariba Buyer, Oracle I- Procure, Peoplesoft E-Procure and SAP EBP among others, who have not met their eCatalog enablement, user adoption, spend coverage and order management objectives using these conventional offerings, including supplier networks, and are looking for a more efficient, more automated approach to the problem. Vinimaya's clients include some of the world's largest and most respected global corporations, including 3M, Corning, Agilent Technologies and Sunoco.

"Supplier enablement and SRM challenges have derailed many eProcurement projects in the past. Additionally, companies need and are seeking help from organizations like The Shelby Group to ensure they will finally realize the tremendous benefits of eProcurement," said Gary Hare, CEO of Vinimaya. "So it's very important that solution providers like Vinimaya invest time and resources ensuring their partners have the knowledge and expertise regarding our capabilities, which in turn helps them better serve their clients."

The Shelby Group and Vinimaya are already collaborating on behalf of several of their Fortune 500 clients to share the best practices derived from not only these engagements but from both companies' many previous successful client engagements.

"Vinimaya and Shelby have spent every hour of every day for many, many years delivering supplier enablement solutions successfully to the market," added Hare. "Because of this, we have unmatched experience and expertise our clients can leverage, ensuring they avoid the mistakes others have made, and enjoying the same success our current clients have experienced."
