Strategic procurement performance delivery is greatly enhanced with extended spend visibility. As a procurement professional, achieving spend visibility translates to greater value contribution and transparency. Spend visibility is achieved by leveraging (or using) spend analysis technology. Therefore, spend analysis technology is the single most important technology component procurement organisations like yours must have in their toolbox.
Without spend analysis, your organisation’s performance is blind to opportunities to reap significant value. Spend visibility technology provides:
- Single record of all spend
- Identification of spend under/not under management
- Leverage of aggregated demand across commodities, businesses, states, regions, and facility locations
- Spend segmentation
- Supplier rationalisation and consolidation
- Parts rationalisation and consolidation
- Savings opportunity identification
- Contract compliance enforcement
- Maverick spend reduction
- Budget compliance
- Price rationalisation
- Insight into merger and acquisition supplier consolidation and leverage of spend
Aberdeen Group noted in their research findings, “Enterprises using Spend Analysis tools have been able to achieve 5%-20% cost savings for each new dollar of spend under management.”
