In most cases, when signing a supply agreement, both the supplier and the buyer agree on a product grid, which includes all products to be supplied within the agreement, as well as the prices for all those products.
However, by the time the product is physically delivered, its price may have been changed. There may be a number of reasons for that, including the supplier increasing the price because of raw materials appreciation. In this case, the party have to agree on discounted prices on certain items. This is the time when syncing the current prices from both the supplier's and the buyer's side becomes critical.
In case of hard copy agreement, the parties have to sign it all over again when any price changes. Conversely, if it is an e-doc, everything is done online and in real time. Once the parties have agreed on price, the doc is e-signed, while it is still fully valid and can be reviewed in trials in case any disputes arise.
