A decentralized approach to its European transportation sourcing was causing inefficiencies and a less competitive environment for procurement group suppliers of a multi-billion-dollar conglomerate.
The decentralized approach seemed like a necessary evil, with highly complex spends involving a large volume of shipping between multiple locations. The situation was further complicated by the varying transport pricing models in each country.
The Company turned to the JAGGAER Advanced Sourcing Optimizer (ASO) to simplify its transportation sourcing. As a result, the Company realized 17% increased efficiency and a more competitive environment for suppliers. In addition, the Company now has the ability to receive bids that include supplier strengths and innovations, more easily manage supplier relationships and monitor performance against contracts), allowing them make more informed sourcing decisions. The Company also looks to JAGGAER’s Best Practices Center (BPC) to help them for strategic advice and consulting on all facets of the procurement process.
“Normalized 75,000+ suppliers, and classified $3 billion of spend (>98%) within 12 weeks. Dramatically reduced time required to produce reports and analysis.”

JAGGAER Direct Sourcing
Manufacturers procure a large number of specially designed parts. If the specifications are planned in cooperation with the development department, Procurement can send them to a large number of suppliers in advance. Sketches, drawings and other documents can easily be added to the RFQ. Procurement in manufacturing frequently need to send requests to alternate suppliers, and the RFQ module makes it easy to receive quotes quickly.

Spend Analytics provide data-driven insights into the entire procurement process. Easy access to valuable information allows manufacturers to make strategic decisions that save money and increase efficiency.
- Gather, integrate, and analyze data from any source fragmented across their organization for unmatched analytic depth;
- Gain visibility into spend; visualize its patterns in an intuitive report to see where it’s going and identify cost reduction opportunities; and

SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT (SCM)
During the ordering process in manufacturing it is crucial that documents can be added in the POM process. Our software simplifies this process with the Document Approval Exchange Module, which makes exchanging documents with suppliers easier than ever – for both sides.
Global sourcing initiatives are often difficult to implement in technology-driven companies. New suppliers present a quality risk, which does not exist with long-term suppliers. A select number of technical suppliers must be carefully chosen and developed to ensure that quality standards are met. Automating complaint management also enhances the entire quality improvement process.
