Tamr, a solution provider that helps retailers handle data at scale, has launched the “Data Can Help” solution suite, to help enable global organizations to quickly uncover insights that can optimize spend, minimize supply chain risks and identify alternative parts and suppliers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new solutions layer real-time data on the impact of COVID-19 worldwide on top of organizations’ supply chain and spend data, to help retailers make decisions that can minimize disruption. Tamr will deliver up to five analytics-ready datasets to power data visualization tools on a weekly basis. The service comes in two versions:
- Data Can Help for Spend Analytics and Procurement: Assists companies by identifying opportunities for cost savings using a variety of direct and indirect spend datasets; and
- Data Can Help for Supply Chain Risk and Planning: Helps retailers organize their global supply chain data from varied datasets and ERP systems alongside global COVID-19 impact data, to better anticipate closure impacts and identify alternative suppliers.
