Designed to help you:

Spend Intelligence lies within the Supply Chain Intelligence Platform and enables users to gain visibility into, and analyse, supply chain spending. This entails cleansing and classifying data by leveraging an industry-specific database of over $8 trillion of transactional spend. The data can be viewed through out-of-the-box or customised analytics panels and the solution offers the facility to thoroughly and granularly analyse which categories, projects, and suppliers money is being spend on. Spend Intelligence allows organisations to:

Segment and report spending by business unit, geography, category and supplier

Identify opportunities to reduce pricing variance

Understand the full volume of spending with parent company suppliers and their affiliates to identify increased spend leverage for volume discounting

Pinpoint opportunities to consolidate fragmented sets of suppliers per category

Improve purchasing efficiency by quantifying PO, invoice, and contract count per dollars spent

Compare pricing performance by region or business unit

Bring together disparate internal data sources and cleanse them all to the same industry-standard taxonomy

Overlay additional analytical layers spanning supplier diverse ownership, scope 3 carbon emissions, supplier risk, and commodity inflation and deflation trends
