We are excited to announce we recently launched two new feature sets into Current SCM. Both leverage the wealth of historical purchasing data generated by executing your procurement processes: Offer Price Comparison and Historical Price Data, to help businesses make more informed decisions about their future purchases.
The Offer Price Comparison feature allows users to compare the proposed pricing from vendors against historical purchase and bid data within Current SCM. The system will automatically append historical price data to the vendor's proposed price for each item in the bid. This data includes the low, median, and maximum price for all bids and orders within a defined period.
This feature is a valuable tool for businesses that want to make sure they are getting the best possible price for their purchases. By comparing the vendor's proposed price to historical data, businesses can quickly identify any potential overpayments or high value offers.
The Summary Price Data feature will provide an exportable listing of all items bid or purchased within a specified time frame with the low, median, and max price for all bids along with the same metrics for all orders. The data set can be exported to Excel and can kick off your real world estimating library.
This feature allows the user to search the Catalog (using the same human-language search of our main Catalog Search function) and then list all offers towards the items within a specified time period and currency.
Like Details by Offer, this feature instead searches previous (or ongoing) purchases instead of bids.
Buyers can utilize historical data about previous bids and purchases to make more informed decisions in a number of ways. For example, they can use this data to:
