Now we base our decisions on facts rather than feelings
“Husqvarna Group has a huge raw material exposure. Some years ago, this was managed mainly based on individual people’s experience in sourcing.
The higher volatility and globalization of the markets created a need for a professional tool to support us and enable the best decisions in commodity management. In 2015, we therefore introduced Kairos to provide in depth data and recommendations.
Today each of our commodity managers use this tool to present monthly recommendations to a raw material council in our Group. Now we base our decisions on facts through market trends and chart analyses rather than feelings. Kairos has helped us significantly to utilize market opportunities and avoid risk for the company.”
- Martin Austermann, Chief Procurement Officers, Husqvarna Group
