Select the best suppliers with data-driven sourcing decisions.
When sourcing direct materials, manufacturers require a complete view of the total cost, quality, risk, and lead time associated with the suppliers who provide the components they use to build their products. Directworks Strategic Sourcing enables you to more efficiently engage suppliers, obtain and analyze this information, negotiate from a solid fact base, and make the best sourcing decisions.
