Digitizing business processes across your supplier network

Digitizing business processes across your supplier network

The agriculture industry has the most complex supplier network in the world. One of the important factors in sustaining the raw material procurement process for the agriculture industry is selecting and maintaining this composite supplier network. Collaborating with suppliers, to ensure a steady supply of quality raw materials at competitive prices has become paramount to organizational success.

 

While working with many manufacturing and agriculture customers, we realized that existing ERPs are not solving collaboration challenges which entails price discovery, PO changes, Delivery changes and AP collaboration.

 

In this webinar, we will provide insights into critical aspects of supplier management and discuss in detail on how we provided a seamless digital solution to one of our customers (a leading agri trader) to connect their multiple stakeholders under a single platform. We will also discuss the importance of –

 

  • Having a single virtual platform where all business partners can connect, thereby increasing self-service and automation
  • Reducing technical debt by consolidating multiple systems into one single source of truth
  • Enabling real time analysis of customer data, gathering market intelligence, and reducing dependency on manual processes
  • Creating a price discovery mechanism for suppliers which facilitates transparency of market prices and helps build trust in the business

Managing sourcing and procurement processes for metals and mining industries

Sourcing and procuring direct material are complicated, especially in metals and mining, given the specific nuances of operating in these industries. To name a few, there are tolling agreements, accounts payable for multiple purchase orders, complex assay rules, weighing and sampling, and collaborating with suppliers. Making informed decisions to optimize spending and improve supplier relationships becomes difficult when these workflows are managed in a web of manual processes and disparate systems that operate in silos and hinder informed decisions given the lack of a holistic view.

 

To gain 360-degree insight into critical spends and suppliers, enterprises need intelligent, cloud-driven solutions that connect data and automate manual processes for a timely and unified view.

 

This webinar will explore how businesses can improve productivity and make better decisions in sourcing and procurement processes for metals companies that operate in mining, exploration, smelting, and metals recycling.

 

Get insights into:

  • Sourcing and procurement challenges for metals and mining industries
  • How to manage tolling contracts
  • How to manage the weighing and sampling process
  • Setting and umpiring assaying rules
