Independent supply chain technology expert Jason Busch of Spend Matters recently profiled Supply Dynamics in a three-part Vendor Snapshot evaluating SDX, our multi-enterprise direct materials procurement solution. This deep dive into Supply Dynamics outlines the company background and origins and provides a competitive segmentation analysis and comparison.

SDX provides OEMs with visibility and control over their end-to-end materials and processes supply chain. Coupling part attribute characterization with real-time demand forecasting and analysis, SDX helps OEM clients reduce raw material and process costs and ensure on-time product delivery by providing transparency throughout the extended (Tier 1- Tier n) supply chain.

Referring to the inability of OEMs to see and manage interactions in their extended supply chain Jason Busch says:
“The lack of visibility into their suppliers’ spend and underlying costs prevents them from uncovering cost savings opportunities that are hidden upstream in their supply chains. This is precisely where Supply Dynamics, a provider that specializes in multitier direct materials procurement, proposes to fill an important analytics and solutions gap through its SDX platform. It’s an area that even direct materials procurement technology specialists…do not begin to address effectively.”

Simply put, SDX organizes the chaos created by a product supply chain comprised of hundreds of suppliers and processors, countless raw material specifications, and, potentially millions of part numbers.

Trevor Stansbury, Founder and CEO of Supply Dynamics states “Spend Matters knows procurement and supply chain better than most. We’re delighted to have attracted the attention of the folks at Spend Matters and welcome their impartial, thorough examination of our SDX platform.”
