I’m Paying HOW Much? Taking Advantage of Inventory Item Cost Savings Opportunities in Oracle EBS


Vendor prices can fluctuate, sometimes significantly over time, resulting in unintended higher costs.

A sudden price change may also indicate an expired contract or a significant, unnoticed increase. This session will review key Oracle reports to leverage your purchasing across the business, and to identify inventory item cost savings opportunities.
