In an age where information is the new currency, today's procurement leaders must be ready to engage in real conversations with finance. Creating a line of sight into savings opportunities and compliance gaps that hit the bottom line is a core rationale for a spend analysis solution.
But too often procurement teams struggle with the make-versus-buy decision when it comes to spend analysis. They may not realize that trying to do it alone can result in ineffective spend analysis activities that come at a high cost in terms of both the Chief Procurement Officer and Chief Finance Officer needs. In contrast, working with spend analysis experts with established data optimization techniques and category knowledge can improve the delivery and accuracy of spend data. This is crucial in demonstrating procurement's value and for building trust with the CFO and broader business units.
