EC SPEND TRANSFORMS THE MESS TO FIND VALUE

Transforming Your Spend Data to Accelerate Savings Capture

How would you describe your current spend analytics process? Does it give you a complete picture of all spend across the entire organization in a way that you can draw helpful conclusions from? For instance, if you wanted to run a competitive sourcing event for General Industrial Supplies within the MRO category or to measure the potential impact a Group Purchasing Organization(GPO) partner could have on savings opportunity, do you have the data organized in a manner to evaluate? Does your PO process completely alleviate errors in how it categorizes and classifies purchases? Do you feel like you might have to ask the supplier for data support because of how your ERP system, BI tool, or PO database have designated the buys? That is a to ugh spot to be in! Having to begin a procurement process by asking the supplier for data and contractual information you should have, is never negotiation strategy.

EC Spend takes your raw data from any disparate data source system and transforms it to provide a 365 degree view of all sourcing-related opportunities available across the organization. Much like our other modules, EC Spend is compatible with any existing ERP, Expense Management, TMS, VMS, or other data source system.
