Empowering the Supply Chain with Real-Time Insights

In today’s dynamic business environment, building lasting relationships with suppliers through multi-year contracts is more crucial than ever. As a procurement manager, you know the importance of choosing the right vendors. Staying ahead of market dynamics is a top priority.

But this all costs time, effort and understanding…..

Good news! Using A.I. in the right way can help enormously!

Let’s take a prominent pharmacy company as an example

Within their procurement department, they’re grappling with the complexities of multi-year contracts and the specific conditions negotiated with their vendors. This is a critical concern for them, as obtaining the right ingredients for their medicines at the best possible prices is essential for their business.

These long-term contracts are tied to global indices, such as labor costs in Germany and the fluctuations in commodities like aluminium on the London Metal Exchange. Staying ahead of these market dynamics is absolutely paramount.


The challenge lies in effectively monitoring these contracts in conjunction with the related indices and percentages, and that’s where A.I. comes to the rescue. Through the power of Artificial Intelligence, they’ve streamlined their process, making easy to identify contracts that require immediate attention. Receiving timely alerts has become a game-changer, saving them valuable time and resources.

Even better they can get a prediction on future developments enabling them to create more accurate multi-year budgets and enhancing cost transparency.
