With built-in quote, bid and award tools, you can act immediately on specific recommendations, market opportunities or planned sourcing events. LevaData streamlines the entire quote to award process, including supplier collaboration, status monitoring, and execution of awards.
LevaData's algorithms can be used to simulate awards, compare scenarios and balance tradeoffs to meet multiple goals. You can set rules and target constraints for a variety of scenarios, including minimum or maximum number of suppliers, lead times, tiered bids, preferred supplier priorities, split and savings goals.
After identifying risks and opportunities, LevaData recommends strategies to maximize negotiation outcomes. Generate negotiation playbooks with one click and receive the most impactful levers, based on intelligence related to the manufacturer, supplier and related parts. The system then learns from each negotiation to sharpen its estimates of target cost achievement in the future. As LevaData learns, so does your entire organization. New talent can ramp up and adopt the best practices of the most experienced experts on the team.
