Select the Best Suppliers with Data-Driven Sourcing Decisions

When sourcing direct materials, manufacturers require a comprehensive view of the total landed cost, quality, risk, lead time and other critical selection criteria 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 data-driven sourcing decisions.


Built for the strategic sourcing needs of manufacturers.

Unlike other one-size-fits-all sourcing solutions, Directworks Strategic Sourcing is built to manage the sourcing requirements of manufacturers and provides coverage for all categories of spend: direct materials, CAPEX, and indirect goods and services.
