Item Purchase Analysis

Analyse Purchase history and purchase price variations between date ranges

The Purchase Analysis report looks at purchase orders over a user defined period and shows:

  • Minimum Cost
  • Maximum  Cost
  • Average Purchase Cost
  • Average Delta (Average difference between Min and Max Cost)

This is useful to understand how various products and suppliers' pricing changes over time and will help buyers negotiate better outcomes.
