JAGGAER Addresses Impact of Tariffs on Manufacturing Supply Chain

29 August 2019

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Aug. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JAGGAER, the world’s largest independent spend management company, and MetalMiner, a sourcing and trading market intelligence firm for metal markets, will present a detailed review of the impact of tariffs on global manufacturing, giving actionable strategies for mitigating risk while maintaining profitability. Register here for the Ready or Not, Here They Come: How Tariffs Will Wreak Havoc on Your Supply Chain (And What to Do) live webinar on Wednesday, September 11 at 11:00AM ET.

The dynamic nature of global tariff brinksmanship has forced manufacturers to reevaluate their supply chains, and calls for nimble strategies to quickly assemble and qualify alternative options to the point of completely shifting manufacturing operations, in some cases. This scenario has created a number of vexing issues: does a company absorb the price increase and pass the cost along to consumers? Is the answer reconfiguring or even completely relocating a supply chain to another country? Are domestic sources an option?

It's mission critical for manufacturers to have immediate, up-to-date visibility into their entire Source-to-Pay (S2P) process. This exclusive JAGGAER webinar will provide strategies and tactics that manufacturers can immediately implement:

  • How to access parts/components/assemblies most at risk.
  • Analyzing current spend on goods that are tariff challenged.
  • How to develop sourcing strategies and implement alternative supply options.
  • How to find alternative suppliers (and vet / onboard them) as quickly as possible.
  • How to re-think parts/products/assemblies to get an accurate cost model.

JAGGAER’s Thomas Dieringer and MetalMiner’s founder and CEO Lisa Reisman will walk through a quick tariff outlook, discuss strategies, and provide insights around planning and technology that can support fast-moving supply chain configurations.

The instability caused by tariffs on manufacturing goods are wreaking havoc on supply chains. Identifying at-risk supply chains and finding alternative options is crucial, and is only possible with detailed visibility. Join JAGGAER’s live webinar to develop tools to identify risk and quickly adjust supply chains for today, and insulate them against future disruptions.
