Off-Contract Spend Analysis section view

Minimize rogue spend

Identify rogue spend to drive sourcing strategy adoption and negotiate the most competitive pricing terms with suppliers.

Example: A high rate of off-contract spend on laptops in certain countries indicates a potential opportunity to sign new suppliers in this region.

By consolidating off-contract purchases with one key supplier, we increase the likelihood of negotiating volume discounts at a better rate.
