How Leva Can Help You
Leva levels the playing field with suppliers and manufacturing partners via unique cost benchmarks on parts, products, and commodities. It recommends negotiation levers and cuts analysis time to seconds for sourcing events. This means you can act on risks and opportunities with specific insights.
Leva gives you improved accuracy in product cost allocation changes. It allows you to manage rebates and amortize tooling at suppliers. Leva alerts you when margins are at risk from Forex or raw material cost changes. This means you can move from reacting to supplier risk to predicting success.
Leva creates visibility into outsourced BOMs and “costed rollups” from manufacturing partners. It enables a “trust but verify” approach for key parts and commodities for partial or full outsourcing. This means insights into full transformation and lifecycle cost changes in your manufacturing process.
Leva’s recommendations during new product introductions allow you to optimize suppliers, part selection, and cost. It gives you unique access to market intelligence and savings opportunities in real time as you create a design BOM. This means you can reduce product lifecycle costs from the very start.
