With direct materials and engineered goods representing an increasing percent of an organization’s spending, engaging value-chain members early in the process brings enormous benefits. At , we design solutions to cover the entire spectrum of managing an Industrial Sourcing Ecosystem (ISE).
This enables continuous improvement to processes and hand-offs between OEMs and key supply chain stakeholders. Organizations can reduce operational costs and improve profit margins by leveraging bill of material and other related materials to build standard (RFQs) and quote responses from complex fabrication projects to off-the-shelf components. Acari executes streamlined sourcing and project cycles through improved supplier communications and negotiation, resulting in reduced sourcing response time and improved accuracy. Suppliers can submit Engineering Change Requests (ECRs) and collaborate with different functional groups throughout the sourcing life-cycle, allowing clients to reduce development costs, accelerate time-to-market and adhere to business plans.
