Title
(EN) SUPPLIER CONSOLIDATION BASED ON ACQUISITION METRICS
Abstract
(EN)

Techniques are provided for supplier consolidation based on acquisition metrics. In an embodiment, supplier economic data is determined for multiple suppliers based at least in part on data regarding acquisitions from the multiple suppliers. A request is received for a recipient supplier consolidation and aggregated recipient economic data is determined based on an acquisition history of the recipient, the aggregated recipient economic data corresponding to acquisitions of one or more acquisition items for the recipient. An improvement set of suppliers is determined from the multiple suppliers based on the supplier economic data for the multiple suppliers and the aggregated recipient economic data for the one or more acquisition items. The received request for recipient supplier consolidation is responded to with the improvement set of suppliers.
