Software Tools for Buyers
The procurement of commodities and standardized products is often an afterthought in modern supply chain discourse. Volatile prices and shifting production patterns require buyers to dynamically source and re-source product, often at the transaction level. As volatile commodity prices strain margins and profitability across every industry, buyers need tools designed to meet these new market realities.
it is not enough to measure purchases against strategic plan or budget.
