More negotiating power and improved relations

Use the objectivity of market price indices for more negotiating power and ensure more transparency and thus more trust in your customer and supplier relationships.

Benefit from easy access via all end devices and networking with other data sources.

Do you know this one?

You regularly have to look at the market prices for an entire portfolio of products. To do this, you access a variety of data sources with different scaling and time periods. The download is available from the various sources - if at all - in different formats. This makes further processing in Excel and other formats difficult and time-consuming. You have to actively monitor the price development on a regular basis instead of automatically receiving a notification. You would certainly have better things to do, wouldn't you?
