Traditionally, procurement analytics have focused on understanding procurement spend and supplier performance solely from a historical perspective. But that is no longer sufficient when procurement organizations face ever-tightening schedules, inflated cost pressures, and the need to get ahead of rapidly changing market dynamics.
As the value of targeted data and complexity increases, it’s imperative to treat data as the most valuable assets and apply a structured toolbox to maximize return on usage.
ProcureAbility’s digital solutions enable procurement organizations to drive disruption rather than be buffeted by it. They put you in control by giving your organization new insights into spending, solving procurement and business problems, improving processes, and generating measurable cost savings.
ProcureAbility prepares our clients for the future of procurement–helping them discover, develop, and refine their analytics practices and leverage innovative and industry-leading marketing intelligence to lead their team to become a world-class procurement organization.
Strategic procurement is now fundamentally reliant on analytics, but procurement teams need a low-risk, high-value solution that can be customized and tailored to suit their specific needs. PureSpend—our proprietary technology platform—collects, cleans, classifies, and analyzes your expenditure data with an eye toward decreasing procurement costs, improving efficiency, and monitoring compliance. It can also be leveraged in other areas of the business, including inventory management, budgeting, planning, and product development.
Our industry-leading PureSpend technology features are designed by experienced procurement professionals, conceived as a flexible service addressing the nuances of each client’s situation, with a clear focus on actionable procurement analytics. PureSpend does not require specialized staff or training to operate and realize full value, is largely independent of the internal IT function, and requires limited financial commitment while providing high ROI.
Technology allows procurement organizations to elevate from a tactical part of the organization to a full-fledged contributor to business strategy.
