Should Cost Analysis

Insights into raw materials

On average 50% of the price of a product is determined by the commodity prices. Often however, buyers don’t have enough time to find a good source to check the prices claimed by the supplier. Within Simfoni’s Negotiation Insight Solution you quickly get an insight into the price developments of all important raw materials. This reduces time to research raw materials pricing to a fraction of the category managers current effort, while simultaneously increasing negotiation authority with the supplier.

Cost structure per industry

Each industry has a unique and specific set of cost drivers which are stored in the solutions database. Buyers can now use those cost drivers that have a large impact on the cost price of a product during negotiations.
