Changing Dynamics: Driving Direct Materials Sourcing and Supplier Collaboration
A breakout-session slide deck from SAP Ariba Live - Singapore
No two categories are the same, and neither are sourcing and procurement strategies. Direct materials sourcing – considered the lifeblood of the supply chain – presents unique challenges and opportunities. Success requires the right blend of in-depth product expertise, close supplier collaboration, and tight integration across processes. In today’s global economy, greater reliance on trading partners has made supply chain collaboration a competitive mandate. As supply chains become more complex and dynamic, your ability to use direct materials sourcing and procurement to achieve the perfect order – receiving the right product, in the right place, at the right time, in the right quantity – depends on having the right tools and partners.
Review this slide deck to learn how SAP Ariba solutions are helping customers with their direct material sourcing strategy; how to collaborate across multiple processes, systems, and geographies in real time; and how to quickly identify and respond to unplanned supply chain events.
