Mega WeCare Drives
Cost Savings by
Automating RFQ Management
Established in 1982, Mega WeCare, a public company limited, is engaged in manufacturing, marketing, selling and distributing quality pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products globally. With a presence in 31 countries, the brand exports products to Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Africa, CIS-Countries, Latin America and Europe.
Challenges faced by Mega WeCare
The brand had a limited vendor pool which restricted the number of negotiations for each shipment and resulted in higher shipping costs. Besides, negotiating deals via calls and emails stifled the productivity and overall efficiency of its logistics team.
Impact on the brand
Lack of competitive deals
With many shipments being contract-based, the pharma giant couldn’t leverage competitive rates throughout the year.
As annual contract prices include buffers and contingent costs, the company was incurring additional expenses.
Poor reporting capabilities
Manually created reports lead to inefficient data analysis and muddled insights.
Limited vendor pool
A small vendor pool led to fewer negotiations, preventing the company from securing competitive prices.
Solution: Automation of RFQ management
With GoComet’s GoProcure RFQ Management module, Mega WeCare managed to automate its freight negotiation process. As a result, their engagement with vendors increased by 180% leading to more negotiations and double-digit cost savings.
