Global companies face an exceptionally complex economic and operational environment that presents significant challenges, from managing global growth to sustainably reducing costs, from enforcing compliance to mitigating increasing volatility and risk.

Procurement organizations play a critical role in managing these challenges—and in achieving critical corporate objectives. Yet, procurement organizations are challenged themselves with managing an increasingly global supply base, optimizing complex processes and making sense of data scattered across disparate systems.

IBM Emptoris Strategic Supply Management is a flexible suite of procurement solutions that provide organizations greater visibility and control over global spending, contracts and suppliers, as well as related intelligence and processes. The suite includes solutions for sourcing, contract management, spend analysis, supplier lifecycle management, services procurement, telecom expense management and program management which can be deployed individually or as a single cohesive platform. IBM Emptoris solutions help companies drive improved performance, capture sustainable cost savings, mitigate varied risks, improve compliance and directly impact the bottom-line.
