Manage multiple sources of spend in a holistic environment and make informed decisions in an instant.
All aspects of business are being revolutionized for a new era: Spend Management – as it becomes Intelligent Spend Management – is no different. Stakeholders in the supply chain, procurement, finance, and accounts payable have faced intense competitive pressure to reduce costs and gain more process control.
To meet growing demand, business leaders need an end-to-end platform that helps them get a comprehensive overview on spend categories, while delivering best-in-class capabilities for those who rely on them. Numerous enterprise software providers claim to offer such a solution, but few span the entire source-to-settle process and fewer still have added intelligence – until now.

Intelligent Spend Management is about bringing partner networks and ecosystems together to capture every source of spend, across each category, for one unified view – freeing businesses to focus on more important challenges.
Spending generates all kinds of data. To manage spend, business systems need to interact with data coming from business processes, social sources, suppliers, and more. This requires a new approach, not the 1990s-era model that moves data from one place to the next.
Disconnected, siloed solutions with embedded intelligence can learn only from the parts of the process they manage. These intelligent technologies need exposure to a holistic view of spend-related data.
The process of managing spend touches many other parts of a business. It’s essential that the processes and systems managing everything from supply chain and manufacturing to finances and CRM are integrated.
The data needed to manage spend doesn’t come exclusively from within the business. It also comes directly from suppliers and other sources or systems. Procurement needs a way to connect with third-party sources and store and analyze collected data easily and automatically.
To address unique regulatory requirements and other specifics, procurement must be able to easily tailor and enhance its spend management solution with APIs and extensions. For example, they can tap into specific third-party solutions or add their own functionality.
For many companies, making simple orders and tracking deliveries are still time-consuming and long-winded processes. Additionally, the IT used to make purchases is often separate from the main ERP. This only ever leads to tedious order searching and scattered, incomplete documentation.
Our Spend Management solutions help procurers and other relevant stakeholders to get a holistic overview on spending and drive organizational value. Error-prone processes related to ordering, tracking, and invoicing become a thing of the past, cross-functional teams collaborate more effectively, and control and compliance become the order of the day.
That’s what Intelligent Spend Management is all about: the development of procurement into a strategic function with proper IT support. Our solutions for Spend Management support all core processes – from the physical procurement of goods or services to contracting and invoicing.
