Directworks is built for discrete manufacturers who rely on a critically important network of suppliers to provide the direct materials used to build their products. The platform enables a more effective and efficient way to engage these suppliers…and internal stakeholder teams…in strategic activities at any stage of the product lifecycle.
Directworks is designed to help you develop, launch and deliver more profitable products. Powerful automation and collaboration increases productivity while configurable solution modules reliably deliver the information you need to make smarter, data-driven decisions. Directworks’ deliberate focus on discrete manufacturing and direct materials provides you with unique and valuable capabilities not found in more general supplier management solutions.
You need a better way to work with internal stakeholders and suppliers to achieve target costs, deliver greater value to your customers, and drive profitable growth. Spreadsheets, ERP modules, and PLM solutions are not the answer and one-size-fits-all source-to-pay solutions are not designed to support the complexities of direct materials spend. Directworks is.
“We need a more complete picture of critical supplier selection criteria to make important supply decisions. We want to have more effective negotiations, make smarter sourcing decisions, and improve our product costs.”
Directworks provides a comprehensive view of cost and non-cost factors so you can engage in fact-based negotiations and make data-driven sourcing decisions to achieve target costs.
“We need greater visibility into our suppliers to fully understand their capabilities, capacities, compliance, performance, and risk. We want to minimize our risk of supply shortages, product failures, and compliance problems.”
Directworks enables deeper insight into your suppliers so you can proactively monitor their capacities, compliance and performance and take action to reduce supply risks.
“We want to engage key stakeholders and suppliers in new product development activities, innovation strategies, and cost improvement initiatives. We want to have more successful product launches, accelerate our time to market, and drive profitable revenue growth.”
Directworks provides a collaborative workspace for early and active involvement of stakeholders and supply partners in new product development, innovation, and cost improvement efforts. This leads to greater new product launch success, faster speed to market, and profitable top-line growth.
“We want to free our people from tactical, inefficient work to increase their productivity and strategic contributions. We want to create more value from the data and information we are collecting.”
Directworks delivers business process automation in an enterprise system that minimizes tactical work and increases productivity so people can source more spend. All of the data is available in one system and can be used to improve insight and decision making across your company.
