In my previous post about Purchasing Performance, I said that companies don't measure Purchasing Performance because they don't have the tools (software and procedures) to do it.
Now, I will prove this statement
And on top of that, you (smartly) decide to pool transportation costs via a transportation company.
So, and the end of the story, you have 3 suppliers for the same item, manufacturing, packaging and transport.
Do you know any ERP able to ventilate in a single Purchasing Order all these costs by item?
Do you know any ERP able to consolidate the costs by item?
