SpendHQ was built by sourcing and procurement
professionals who knew there had to be a better way
The SpendHQ SaaS spend analysis solution was created by the sourcing experts at Insight Sourcing Group, a leading management consulting firm led by alumni of the world’s largest consulting organizations, including Accenture, AT Kearney, Deloitte, McKinsey, KPMG and most admired companies like Coca-Cola, Hewlett Packard, and Home Depot.
SpendHQ (Spend Headquarters) is an independent business unit of Insight Sourcing Group and is offered as a stand-alone product for organizations that need complete spend intelligence in order to achieve their goals. SpendHQ was initially created for Insight Sourcing Group’s internal use to provide the visibility needed to drive savings for clients. It was first commercialized in 2012, and today our team of developers and sourcing professionals have grown it into one of the most innovative spend analysis solutions on the market.
Insight Sourcing Group focuses exclusively on strategic sourcing, spend analytics and procurement process transformation. SpendHQ leverages the human capital at Insight Sourcing Group, along with its knowledge and expertise in sourcing, procurement and cost reduction gained from over 5,000 projects performed around the world. Visit the Insight Sourcing Group website for more information.
After benchmarking spend analytics tools used across all industries, the American Red Cross selected SpendHQ based on our evaluation of their practitioner-built tool and practical approach. Implementation has been smooth, and early results are encouraging to date. At this point, we believe the Red Cross will achieve its targeted 7X ROI on the cost of this tool.
