Does your business source products and services from global markets?

If your company is sourcing goods and services internationally you could be reaping many benefits. These include access to cheap raw materials and products, tax breaks and reduced labour costs. However, you could also face many challenges when globally sourcing across geopolitical boundaries. Your business could struggle to achieve visibility of its global supply chain. Without good visibility, maximising the benefits from global sourcing is impossible, as it is impossible to track exactly how much is being spent. Fortunately, technology is revolutionising the way organisations can process and track every stage of their global sourcing operation.

Do you have visibility of a global supply chain?

If your organisation struggles with supply chain visibility you are not alone, according to Deloitte’s survey of Chief Procurement Officers, 65% of CPO’s have limited or no visibility beyond their Tier 1 suppliers. One problem your organisation might face is the challenge of how to compare bids from multiple suppliers in multiple currencies. So, how do you solve this problem? Do you rely on spreadsheets to compare factory costs, duties, shipping and other factors that impact on total prices? The problem with spreadsheets is they are not easy to share globally or keep up to date, which means they can be an unreliable source of data.

A better solution to this problem is to utilise cloud based spend management technology. A good cloud based spend management platform (like Claritum) can be accessed 247 from anywhere in the world and can provide centralised visibility over every transaction in real time.
