How leading CPOs optimize margins
Transparency throughout all procurement data is the cornerstone that helps procurement managers and CPOs to achieve the optimum from it.

By introducing a spend cube, you will obtain your data in a form, with which you can reliably answer all questions and measure savings. The spend cube compiles all procurement-relevant data.
Note: Ideally, calculations are only made in this system and not with the data in the productive system.
If the spend cube is additionally equipped with this functionality, reports can automatically be prepared in your CI and sent to the desired recipient.
