Supply chains have become more complex and volatile with procurement teams facing an array of challenges. In the current climate, manufacturers are exposed to significant supplier risks, from non-compliance to supply shortages. As a result, a comprehensive Source-to-Contract (S2C) view of supplier and sub-supplier activity is crucial for manufacturers to gather meaningful data, increase supply chain risk monitoring capabilities and mitigate the impact of supply chain disruption.

SSAB has selected Ivalua as it strives to further improve efficiency and maintain and strengthen its capabilities to mitigate and navigate supply chain risks. The project will benefit from Stretch Procurement’s expertise as it will assist with the implementation of the platform.
