“Procurement CAPEX is the biggest single cost element in SABMiller, some $US900-million a year, and, based on the Proof of Concept (PoC) phase of iSpec, the system can deliver on average a 3% saving on total project cost. We also quantified and measured productivity improvements during the PoC, and indications are we can reach process improvements of 300%.”

When you are building a new plant or factory, there are multiple contractors involved, typically civil works, construction, plant specialists (brewing, packaging, etc.) and utilities.
iSpec allows you to create sub-tenders or work-packages for these different disciplines, invite overlapping or separate vendors and once the bids are in, roll-up costs etc. to estimate total project cost depending on the combination of vendors used. Once the bid evaluation is completed, the work can be split out automatically into separate contracts for each vendor - even across work-packages.
iSpec also allows you to include or exclude external costs such as import duties, exchange rate issues and more when evaluating the different scenarios.
