Supply Market Intelligence

Once defined, all records within the system can be associated to the category structure - including Sourcing, Contracts and Supplier records.

Category Management Plan

Category Management Plans detailing information such as Category Descriptions, Procurement Strategies, Business Stakeholders, Procurement Strategies, Business Stakeholders can be developed and stored within the solution. Updates can be recorded to provide a complete historic view of how the category is managed over time. 


Category Structure

User defined Categories can be broken into associated sub-categories and mapped to relevant sections of the UNSPSC coding structure - with simplified data entry and analytics when associating sourcing and contract records to a category.
