PROCUREMENT PRICING ANALYSIS
Procurement is expected to ensure consistency in pricing and supply for goods services from Suppliers even when faced with global pandemics,
socio-political instability, and natural disasters. More than ever companies
are turning to Procurement to help analyze variables and better predict the cost of doing business in the face of supply chain uncertainty. Unfortunately, many Procurement teams lack robust software for planning and predicting changes to supplier pricing and product costs.
These Buyers instead turn to enormous spreadsheets never intended
to sustain operational planning and decision making. Using Anaplan, Procurement, and Finance organizations can align Spend Analysis across global stakeholders to better identify and quantify value opportunities
across the enterprise. Join Anaplan and Twelve Consulting as we discuss ways to establish a Supplier Pricing Analysis capability to help Departments and Projects better manage supplier business and performance, with a
focus on optimizing costs across the company.
YOU WILL LEARN:
Challenges of managing Commodity and Material Pricing Analysis using spreadsheets
Aggregation of pricing data to identify savings opportunities across suppliers, products, and business units
Understand how increased visibility and governance of pricing data can improve performance
