Procurement -- On-Demand Purchase Agreements and Pricing Information
Historical purchase volume data hard to find? Missing key renegotiation milestones? Trouble getting business insight on pricing terms and conditions? Empower your business with ASC solutions that automate and simplify your procurement contract and pricing management needs.
Valuable Historical Data at Your Fingertips
On the procurement or buy side of contract management, information regarding historical product purchase volumes and prices, service level agreements (SLAs), terminations, extensions and price revision rights are invaluable. ASC solutions make it easy for Procurement organizations to access this information on demand, including via automated alerts and notifications. This ease of data access combined with workflow efficiencies inherent in the ASC Contracts tool and other solutions reduce time spent per procurement task and optimizes the buy side processes dramatically.
