Spend analysis involves identifying, gathering, cleansing, categorising, grouping, and analysing the spend data of your organisation. As a result, procurement costs are reduced and efficiencies are improved by increasing visibility and transparency. Real-time data and analytics provide the insight you need to save money and improve efficiency.
An analysis of spend is only part of the much larger field of spend management. With it, you can visualize all your data to make better sourcing and supplier decisions. Also, it can reduce cycle times and identify maverick spending as well as improve contract compliance.
