Category Listing

The ability to create user defined categorisation allows this module to be tailored to your specific needs.

 

Categories can be broken into association sub-categories and/or with relevant sections of UNSPSC coding structure – which simplifies data entry when associating sourcing and contract records to a category.

Supply Market Intelligence

Once defined, all records within the system can be associated to the category structure – including Sourcing, Contracts and Supplier records. This integrated mechanism of classifying information throughout the various modules of the solutions provides a single view for the Category Manager of the business being undertaken within their category.

Category Management Plan

Category Management Plans detailing information such as Category Descriptions, Procurement Strategies, Business Stakeholders can be developed and stored within the solution. Updates can be recorded to provide a complete historic view of how the category is managed over time.
