Enabling Decisions Through Focused Insight

An overwhelming majority of services spend goes unmanaged in large companies – with some categories going completely outside of Procurement’s purview. The causes may be many, but can largely be attributed to:

  • A lack of resources to effectively understand business requirements and manage the process.
  • The complexity of the engagements themselves.
  • Technologies that aren’t built for services spend management.
  • Bureaucratic procurement processes and/or methodologies that are not necessarily fit for purpose.
  • Misalignment of business objectives between Procurement (focused on savings) and the business (focused on ROI, speed, and quality).

Our goal is simple – to enhance the procurement process for the acquisition of services to overcome these challenges. By harnessing the power of AI, we quickly and accurately bring structure to the myriad of data that exists within contracts and SOWs and bring a stronger lens to spend reporting and analytics. Our solutions deliver revolutionary insight and visibility that enables data-driven buying decisions, increased efficiency, and a better user-experience that increases engagement and delivers results. We focus on the elements of the buy that are often buried too deep for traditional approaches – things like deliverable details, supplier capabilities, quality and performance, and manager satisfaction.

We bring exposure to meaningful data that informs and empowers decision making that will deliver measurable business results in your services category spend.

As a trusted advisor with an impressive client portfolio and breadth of experience to draw upon, we enable procurement leaders to deliver value – defined in variable ways depending on the business requirements by taking control of this spend portfolio through:

  • Enabling more efficient processes that free up internal procurement resources to pursue more strategic initiatives and build relationships with internal stakeholders, as well as suppliers.
  • Delivering multi-layered and meaningful insights into what is being bought, from whom, for how much, and in what time frame, and to help determine whether there are better – not necessarily just cheaper –  options available across all of those parameters.
  • Introducing innovative ways to engage business stakeholders and suppliers to ensure that business can get done in a compliant, cost-confident way while moving at the speed of the business’ requirements.
