Merchandising

Buy Smarter

Negotiation is part art, part science. No one can help you manage the science of negotiating better than PRGX. We leverage knowledge, tools, and data to help merchandising leaders view spend and costs in new and unique ways. Our clients buy smarter because PRGX gives them better visibility into true product costs and margins by product, supplier and category — across regions, markets, and banners.

Visibility That Improves Negotiations

With better visibility into true product costs and margins by product, supplier and category — across regions, markets and banners, we’ll give you the power to more effectively negotiate the best terms.

Business Challenges Faced by Merchandising Services Today

Actual Costs Paid

Product costs from initial negotiation to when a product hits and then leaves the shelf can vary significantly. Capturing each change is critical to future negotiations.

SKU-Level Margin

When you approach margin at a supplier or category level, you lose control of funding at the SKU level.

Outdated Technology

With antiquated systems, you can’t get the visibility into actual cost negotiations that can take place on a PO, freight invoice or in an employee email.
