“With an organization consisting of centralized and local procurement spread across six countries and more than 20 business units, the client was facing issues with consolidating and identifying savings opportunities since they had no access to the full data on category spend through their central ERP system,” said SpendEdge.

By leveraging contract rates and conditions through the implementation of service or commodity catalogs and identifying the risks due to the lack of long-term contracts and inappropriate sourcing practices, the client was able to save millions. In a span of five weeks, the client was able to achieve approximately 26% savings in various categories and nearly 57% reduction in the supplier base.
