Positive partners with Mintec to provide market-leading price data and business intelligence tools to global procurement teams
The new partnership will enable procurement teams to access a unique set of data, resources and analysis across a wide range of raw materials and commodities. This, alongside the best-in-class strategic procurement workflow, toolkits and academy, provides a new approach to deliver game-changing results.
Commenting on the partnership, Positive CEO Jonathan O’Brien said: “This collaboration has formed at the perfect time for Positive as we believe the future is around integration of digital and data within procurement. It marks a huge leap forward in equipping today’s procurement practitioner with everything they need to secure the optimum value from the supply base.
“Enabling procurement and supply chain professionals to better understand supplier prices, effectively analyse spend and dramatically increase negotiation confidence, is at the core of both our offerings.
“We look forward to working closely with the team at Mintec to enable the implementation of efficient and sustainable procurement strategies.”
Spencer Wicks, CEO of Mintec said: “Mintec is excited to partner with Positive and become part of their growing work. This partnership enables Positive to deliver Mintec data to customers, providing enhanced insight and analysis of food and beverage price movements.”
