Top Procurement Analyst Joins This SpendHQ Podcast

SpendHQ spoke with Andrew Bartolini, Founder and Chief Research Officer at Ardent Partners and publisher of CPO Rising. As a globally recognized expert in sourcing, procurement, accounts payable, and supply management, Andrew focuses his research and efforts on helping enterprises develop and execute strategies to achieve operational excellence within their procurement and finance departments.

Andrew joins us for a conversation about the importance of spend analysis and his thoughts around ongoing challenges and the trends shaping its evolution.

“The average procurement organization today manages roughly 60 percent of their total spend. And our research has shown that for every dollar of spend that is placed under the management of a procurement organization, organizations achieve a savings benefit between six and twelve percent during that first contract period. So there is a very true value proposition that procurement can deliver value on the spend that it manages. And spend analysis is the driving force behind increasing it.”
