Issues and Challenges

Global companies face some common challenges regarding the effective management of product costs. These challenges can be seen in the areas of cost reduction for new and existing products, supplier negotiations with detailed product cost information, and product cost estimation for evaluating design alternatives. No matter how great your product is, it cannot be successful without gaining a complete view of the costing structure and resulting profitability.

Supply Chain Collaboration

Today, supply chain collaboration between buyers and their overseas vendors is usually conducted with an unending merry-go-round of Excel documents, emails, last minute changes and zero visibility into the real-time status of orders and shipments.

We change that by providing a cloud-based platform that all parties access across the supply chain.



"With Amber Road's cloud-based platform, we improved our supplier and partner collaboration across all phases of the design-to-delivery process, which helped reduce costs, shorten cycle times, and increase supply chain flexibility.”
