With new capabilities from the latest SCA Planner update, Sourcing now leverages Real-Time Category Management and other capabilities to deliver optimum forward-looking category insight and pre-analysis at the point in the process when it’s most useful: before you plan and initiate sourcing events. Real-time Category Management frees your team from the time-consuming chore of collating category information for sourcing. In addition, the new update gives your team more power to collaborate effectively on priorities, while SCA Planner synchronizes the sourcing process. A new executive dashboard automates reporting and tracking to keep all stakeholders in the loop.
