Category Management

Make category management easier and more efficient with on-demand service capability.

Category Management

Category management (the grouping of similar or related items into distinct, separate categories based on how items are produced, used or sold) is an important part of overall spend management in modern businesses. Good category management is not simply a once-off exercise, though. It is an ongoing process that requires constant assessment of the performance of each category as a unit, how market conditions and technology innovation are influencing the category and how the overall organization strategy is influencing the importance of the category.

In a business environment where there may be dozens of defined product or item categories (and hundreds or thousands of individual items), category management can be a huge challenge – from initial classification to ongoing management to re-structuring product categories. This is where Simfoni’s suite of technology and enablement services combine to provide an effective category management capability.

At Simfoni, we have a team of category managers with specialist subject matter expertise and a breadth of language coverage. Resources can be deployed on a full-time basis, working seamlessly as part of your team or deployed ‘on demand’ to address specific business situations or expertise gaps.
