Supplier Portfolio Manager
Today's procurement challenges are many and varied. Controlling or reducing spend, understanding supplier relationships, levering global purchasing power in negotiations, mitigating risk, producing reports - all these and more depend on having clear, accurate and timely information across your supplier portfolio.
D&B Supplier Portfolio Manager is an online solution that, by combining your ledger information with D&B data, ensures you can monitor, control and manage suppliers and procurement.
Portfolio manager can help you:
- See how much you spend, in which sectors and with whom
- Identify suppliers who are mission-critical
- Understand corporate spend across diverse supplier entities
- Know the financial strengths and weaknesses within your supply chain
- Quantify risk - by industry, spend category, location or business unit
- Track key changes in your portfolio using customisable alerts
Supplier Portfolio delivers three types of analysis and a portfolio risk dashboard - each with the ability to drill down to a granular level detail.
Breakdown the overall risk structure and the common characteristics of your supplier portfolio. Your ledger balances are aggregated using criteria such as business size, business age, legal form, geographic location and predictive risk score.
Review the risk associated with each supplier and, utilising the D&B scores, identify which suppliers may experience financial or delinquency difficulties in the next 12 months. See which of your suppliers have the highest dependency on you.
Analyse your aggregated spend amounts by global holding company and primary activity sector. The D&B family trees show corporate linkages. These let you understand your total spend with a group, and negotiate cost savings and identify potential cross-source opportunities within the same supply family.
Get a summarised view of your supplier portfolio by risk of future failure. Review the distribution of spend amount on your active ledger by D&B failure score risk category and supplier type; aggregated and split by D&B failure risk band and suppliers by spend that are also customers.
