Market analysis

Datagain’s powerful analytical tools enable users to track the factors affecting the costs and availability of all the constituents of a specific product. Thirty years of data are available to enable you to analyse the trends in price movements and to make informed decisions on the timing and extent of purchasing contracts.




In addition to supporting day-to-day negotiations, Datagain’s clear, distinctive graphing system provides the basis for informed communication both within organisations and amongst supply chain partners. Information can be readily exported from the system in both graphical and numerical formats, ideal for presentations, internal reports, budget preparation and external price negotiations.Other areas where Datagain provides your organisation with a distinct advantage are:

Cost modelling and benchmarking

Sophisticated modelling tools within Datagain can produce graphs that represent the many diverse cost elements related to complex manufactured products. Modelling can be used to evaluate potential savings that might be made by switching to alternative product specifications and packaging options. This information can then be directly benchmarked against your purchasing prices.

Risk management

Price risk is an intrinsic part of the supply chain. Datagain highlights the latest movements and underlines current trends in physical costs, futures markets, currency movements, climate, energy and transportation. With feed stocks information and precursors such as crude oil and gas together with competing markets, recycled products and alternative commodities, Datagain provides you with all the options needed for complete price risk analysis.
