Small manufacturers automate comparison pricing according to Mike Franz of ManufacturingPower. Read the recent article in AutomationMedia here.
“Every manufacturer must pay attention to costs and competitors’ pricing. For better or worse, purchasing professionals are rewarded for capturing the lowest price; few have the time to scour the internet for ever RFQ to see if the bid offered is indeed competitive. Measuring value with price experiments is not realistic,” shared Franz.
Full-time competitive pricing professionals could work 24/7 to generate statistically valid and accurate data. For the small and mid-sized manufacturer, the solution is to automate price comparison functionality. Until recently this was prohibitively expensive and often too complex. Automating costs and competitive prices can be achieved in a $5000 per year SaaS solution.
Only when manufacturers stop basing critical business decisions on inadequate spreadsheets can the purchasing department succeed. Automated access to summary cost and margin information for each SKU delivers light SaaS “MRO/tail-spend” price transparency, returning a minimum 11-14% COGS (cost of goods sold) reduction to the bottom line.

This technology allows customers to achieve real-time visibility into industrial supply spend, better collaborate with suppliers, mitigate risk, and realize significant cost savings with the use of market transparency data. ManufacturingPower is a new-to-market SaaS technology with tools to simplify the industrial supply challenges facing all manufacturers.
Through cloud database management and unique algorithms, big data allows easy access to business intelligence. Until 2020, supply chain technology was far too expensive for the smaller manufacturer. ManufacturingPower offers a low-cost ($5000 annually) solution which provides even the smallest manufacturer the ability to compare competitive pricing driving immediate savings and equally rapid ROI (return-on-investment). ManufacturingPower demonstrates that knowledge is power and transparent market intelligence data to become leaner and far more efficient.
