Best-in-class software and advanced analytics platforms

Orpheus has built vast expertise in the fields of procurement and finance data analytics in almost two decades of hands-on experience in international spend transformation projects. Based on these best practices, we have developed our innovative spend analytics suite.

This software suite covers value-creating areas of strategic procurement. After extracting all relevant data using Digital Backbone, our AI-based Data Categorizer automatically prepares procurement data for further analytical processing by cleansing, harmonizing, classifying, and comparing the data. Spend Control then uses the resulting data transparency to provide standardized and automated spend analyses and KPIs. For indirect as well as direct category analytics, we have our Category Analytics module, which category managers use to gain new strategic insights and take immediate action. In a further step, our Advisory Center and bots help the user automatically identify and leverage hidden savings potential using various AI methods. This savings potential and its performance can then be planned, steered, and measured with the Impact Tracker module.
