Webinar by SpendEdge on Cost Modeling and Deal Benchmarking: Best Rescue for Procurement Organizations

Sep 30, 2022

We hosted a webinar on Cost Modeling and Deal Benchmarking: Best Rescue for Procurement Organizations on Wednesday, September 28 and Thursday, September 29, 2022.

Inflation had started to ease in July but it is still close to a multi-decade high and the North American and EMEA markets are witnessing soaring inflation over the past two quarters. Category managers get constant requests from suppliers on price increases amid high market fluctuations and face challenges in making informed decisions against the right deal sizes. These have had major implications on the overall procurement spend for the organization. The benefits of cost modeling and deal benchmarking is evident for category managers to be able to make great decisions through proper assessment of markets/categories that are susceptible to market fluctuations.

Why should category managers bother?

SpendEdge’s webinar is aimed at understanding many things at the category manager level, as rapid market fluctuations and price rises keep on presenting new challenges – as well as fresh opportunities. Essentially, managers responsible for specific product categories need to know what’s working and what isn’t in a market scenario type casted by sharp price movements. And that would mean, in the near future, procurement decisions will have to be necessarily made based on hard data and numbers.

Cost modelling and deal benchmarking to the rescue

Cost modeling and deal benchmarking tools can help you get the metrics you need to understand the economics behind the creation of a product, so you can easily work out cost-effective prices and winning procurement deals. True, cost modelling and deal benchmarking have been around for decades, but they haven’t got the attention they deserve except from some top-end manufacturing organizations. With some more awareness and understanding, you too can leverage these tools to raise your profile in the procurement arena and post significant wins.
