Helping companies create more value together
How do you create more value from your trading?
The pressure is always up to get more value from your trading. That is true whether you are on the buying side or the selling side. There are so many factors to consider before you can make a deal with a supplier, let alone several suppliers. And now there is a call for more robust supply chains with even more suppliers. Complexity is increasing and this before we consider growing regulatory requirements and what about sustainability?
Let's just say, that life in procurement is getting increasingly hard. Perhaps ironically, this does not make life in sales easier as the pressure on procurement is pushed out in the world.
In Acumex we want to make life a little easier for both buyers and sellers and at the same time help both parties gain more value. Complexity and inefficiencies, which is often just referred to as "the cost of doing business", lock value on both sides of the deal. To unlock this value requires technology and collaboration. Our services are developed to build the digital bridge to deal with both inefficiencies and complexity and unlock value for you.
The Trade Management System
The Trade Management System (TMS) is a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution where buyers and sellers can negotiate and trade deals with multiple trading partners in real time. This makes it suitable for trading products, which several parties can offer (such as commodities). It helps teams keep a better overview of the deals as they proceed and thus avoids siloed information. The possibility to negotiate deals in the system makes it possible to apply the collaborative approach working with your suppliers . For many, this means that tedious work with overloaded spreadsheets can be avoided.

It is a technology, which is under continuous development and will thus grow more and more performant.
