Procurement gets boost with Smart Cube

To help procurement professionals navigate global supply chain disruptions, The Smart Cube (www.smartcube.com) is extending its partnership with Craft (www.enterprise.craft.co) to launch a new joint Category Monitor offering, to provide in-depth insights on categories most affected by global supply chain disruptions.

“For category managers challenged by the ongoing disruption of global supply chains due to geopolitical events, the pandemic, the energy crisis and supply shortages, there is an urgent need for proactive monitoring of risks, supply sources, suppliers, raw materials and more, for the most impacted and critical categories,” says Prerna Dhawn, Chief Solutions Office, The Smart Cube.

“Through our procurement solutions, we seek innovative ways to support category managers to address new and ongoing challenges. This new initiative under our alliance with Craft will enable procurement professionals to understand and respond to the impact of mega global events at category, commodity, and supplier levels, helping them to navigate continuing turbulent times.”

“We’re delighted to be able to build on our partnership with The Smart Cube to support procurement and supply chain teams who will now be able to experience a seamless workflow between Amplifi PRO and Craft’s Supplier Intelligence Portal,” says Seb Butt, Global Head of Business Development, Craft.  “The latest collaboration gives sourcing managers immediate access to category intelligence and powerful insights about individual suppliers across risk domains, contributing to their preparedness ahead of disruptions and a rapid response right after them.”
