Procurement teams must manually aggregate data or use partially developed SRM systems to view the entire supply base and understand their lifecycle within the enterprise. Historical and non real time data does not provide an accurate picture nor provide enough views to understand the current and possible future state of suppliers
Goals and Objectives
Completely automating the current manual and semi automated supply base lifecycle will provide more intelligence on the suppliers and their importance to the business.
