JAGGAER teams up with The Smart Cube to deepen Category Intelligence for its Autonomous Commerce Strategy
11 October, 2022 – JAGGAER has announced a partnership with The Smart Cube, a global provider of strategic research and analytics solutions. JAGGAER ONE Category Management can now be augmented by Amplifi PRO, The Smart Cube’s on-demand digital procurement intelligence platform, to provide extensive market intelligence to procurement professionals for creating robust category strategies.
Amplifi PRO gives category managers easy access to more than 550 category insight reports, price data for 8,000+ commodities, 9,000+ inflation monitors and more, to support category analysis and planning.
Welcoming the partnership, JAGGAER CEO Jim Bureau commented, “Procurement resources are limited, and day-to-day firefighting and resource constraints can impact the ability to develop effective category management strategies. The challenges faced by category managers have recently become greater than ever, with a variety of natural and man-made disruptions to supply chains.
“Against this background, the combination of JAGGAER and The Smart Cube will give our customers a streamlined experience and easy access to curated market intelligence, all in one place, for all their category strategy needs. Fundamentally it will enhance their ability to make more informed decisions through reliable and up-to-the-minute insights into high impact spend categories.
“Intelligence is one of the four pillars of our Autonomous Commerce strategy, and this partnership brings deep intelligence to our Category Management solution. I strongly believe that intelligence must also be curated, to cut through all the noise and uncertainty caused by disparate sources of unconnected data.
“The Smart Cube gives this to our customers. It will deliver practical benefits through the early identification of risk potentials in key categories as well as timely information on price movements across hundreds of commodities,” Bureau concluded.
Commenting on the benefits of this partnership, Omer Abdullah, Co-Founder and MD, The Smart Cube, said: “The new partnership provides excellent value to procurement leaders looking to develop and implement strong category strategies. It brings together several mutually complementary components – robust market intelligence and category management tools and analytics through a single platform, enabling more efficient decision making.”
