Make a ‘Smart Buy’ with a holistic view of cost, quality and risk using our on-line RFQ decision process
“We have found them to be an excellent business partner.Through the implementation of both their supply chain and sourcing software they have more than proven themselves in giving us a product that functions the way we need it to.LIMA has been a fantastic supply chain visibility tool, calculating real accurate landed cost position throughout the order lifecycle.
The LIBERTY software matches our product sourcing business needs perfectly. PLM systems I’ve previously used, often bring lots of issues through implementation, but these guys managed this and I’ve got highly satisfied users.”
