When Sourcing in Procurement Falls Short: Strategies to Effectively Manage Your Categories

All spend analysis processes and solutions are not the same, yet there is the tendency to view spend analysis generally and as a set of specific data inputs and outputs. The truth of the matter is that there are many variables beyond the core technology that should be considered before commencing a spend analysis “journey.” When coupled with the right technology, category, process, and supply market expertise, it can reveal key insights and facilitate better business decisions that the technology alone may not yield. With many departure points and even more paths to follow, procurement teams today need the right “guide” to properly prepare them for their trip but also work to ensure they reach their destination.
