Highlight and manage the impact of market volatility on your product components and portfolios

Recent and significant market volatility has put additional pressure on procurement functions. Price fluctuations – whether inflation or deflation – are making it increasingly difficult to estimate the development of product costs. So, how would you like a tool that helps you make forecasts and define realistic procurement targets? A foundation for enhancing your negotiation strategies with suppliers?

The INVERTO Volatility Manager (IVM), is an indispensable tool for managing procurement cost volatility. It analyzes direct (raw materials) and indirect cost factors (e.g. energy, labor costs, etc). It then evaluates their impact on both component and portfolio level, while also taking country specifics into account.

IVM equips your procurement professionals with the ability to analyze and forecast market impacts, based on macroeconomic developments, and then tailor their procurement strategies accordingly. There are comprehensive dashboards to serve the needs of Procurement Managers, Category Managers, CPOs and CFOs, all at a simple click of a mouse.
