What is Spend Analytics?

Spend Visibility: All the data you care about, right at your fingertips.

Spend Analytics

Spend Analytics is the process of aggregating, cleansing, classifying, and analyzing corporate purchasing or spend data to reduce procurement costs, improve efficiency, and monitor supplier compliance. On average, corporate procurement executives have visibility of only fifty percent of their overall spend.

Spend Analytics can help organizations like yours optimize their supply side performance by integrating data from across the enterprise, thereby enabling executives, managers, and frontline employees to make more informed and actionable decisions.

Spend Analytics is the linchpin of spend management. With more and more companies turning to solutions such as Concur, Expensify, Coupa, and Procurify to control spending, it is equally important to have visibility into these expenses to determine if vendor shopping or vendor discounts can be taken advantage of. Using Spend Analytics to enable spend visibility, which in turn drives insights and supports the right decisions at every stage of the expense management process.

Once a detailed spend analysis is complete, the available data allows companies to drive profitability, as well as monitor ongoing performance and risk.

  • Quantifying and delivering savings
