"It's great to see that you understand our underlying data quality challenges/issues and have ready-made solutions to address them. Often, many providers take a helicopter view that is detached from reality"

Akbar Suleymanov, Senior Finance Director at Mundipharma.

 Jaw-dropping insights

Many solutions, especially mature solutions and suites, come with hundreds of out-of-the-box reports, pointless library of uselessness, spread across dozens of dashboards that have been built up by the provider over time and included for all customers.  But contrary to intuition, in analytics, more is actually less. Too many reports and dashboards that are not appropriate to the organizational spend patterns and/or are not appropriate for highlighting opportunities simply creates noise and confusion.

Spendkey includes a full suite of dashboards that are curated to be relevant to the organisation and customises them so that they can deliver value from the start. The organization can monitor the delivery of that value and drill down to find additional value on their own when they are ready to start the transition from full turnkey service to hybrid self-serve/turnkey service. With ABC, trend, pareto, payment term and other analysis that can provide instant cost-control opportunities that are custom selected and designed by experts who have been delivering opportunities that not only reduce costs but increase overall efficiency and profitability.

  • Easy to use by anyone (no training required)

  • Generate customised views where it matters most

  • Target specific spend categories and sub-categorise with precision

  • Share valuable insights and collaborate

Mapping key business processes against suppliers

It is important to understand and map your business critical processes. Subsequently it makes sense to understand the different suppliers and their services that underpin those business critical processes. By doing this mapping, business leaders are often surprised to find that there are a number of optimisation opportunities to improve profits, reduce risks and unclutter either the supplier services or your business process or both.  We have an example from a leading European Bank who was able to understand that the cost of customer acquisition was 15X more than their profitability model and hence changes their strategy from acquiring new customers to retaining existing customer.

Mapping key business processes against suppliers

Do you know the true cost of your critical business processes?  It is important to understand and map your business-critical processes. It also makes absolute sense to understand the different suppliers and their services that underpin such processes.                                                       

Having undertaken these mapping exercises, business leaders are often surprised to find that there are a number of optimisation opportunities that they could utilise to improve profits, reduce risks and unclutter either the supplier services or business processes (sometimes they can even benefit from both).

An excellent example is a leading European bank who came to understand that the cost of customer acquisition was 15x more than their profitability model. As a result, they upended their strategy and went from focusing on acquiring new customers to retaining existing ones.

This in turn allows you to:

  • Conduct activity based costing
  • Identify bottlenecks
  • Optimise processes
  • Adopt optimal business strategy
