About Category Management

Category Management Software to
Help Procurement Track Savings.

Now that you have high-level visibility across your organization on everything that you spend, who you spend it with and where your money is going, the SpendHQ Category Management module enables you to drill in to determine per-item trending analysis, pricing accuracy and realized savings.

This comprehensive review pulls your category spend from the SpendHQ Spend Visibility module and renders it in an interactive dashboard that enables you to slice and dice your data by a number of category-specific dimensions, compare item spend across the category and easily identify maverick spend.

  • To meet our spend visibility needs we needed a solution with a fast data refresh, highly accurate categorization and an easy-to-use interface – all at an excellent value. SpendHQ met or exceeded our expectations in every category.
