Digital Procurement & Spend Analytics

Be Future Ready


At the end of the day money saved is money earned. This is even more valid for procurement and supply chain leaders. They are not only expected to reduce costs but also fuel innovation and future business growth.

It is easier said than done. While procurement functions have been at the forefront of most corporation transformation programs, there is an inability to access, interpret, and use the data to see the sustained value and ongoing insights.

IBM’s research has found that top-performing organizations tend to see value in the use of procurement analytics for activities such as better pricing and negotiations, identifying savings opportunities, improved demand management, and favorable long-term contracts with suppliers.

Digital Procurement and Spend Analytics

Machines are responsible for automating almost every process imaginable, from running simple tasks such as invoice processing and reconciliation to more sophisticated activities such as budget optimization and monitoring suppliers that are on the brink of bankruptcy.

Tracking products in the supply chain is becoming easier than ever while the cost of real-time tracking and authentication is reducing.

But despite digitalization, the procurement process in most companies is still largely manual and relies on decision-making without a comprehensive understanding of the data.


This means that they are missing out on the key benefits of digital transformation, including material cost savings of 5-10%, productivity increases of 30-50%, and improvements in innovation, quality, speed, and risk management.

According to a survey by the University of Mannheim, 83.9% of Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) consider digitalization important to improve procurement performance, yet the adoption of digital technologies is anything from moderate to dismal.


“CEOs know they must accelerate the adoption of digital business and are seeking more direct digital routes to connect with their customers. But with an eye on future economic risks, they also want to be efficient and protect margins and cash flow.”

— David Groombridge, VP Analyst, Gartner


Despite knowing all the benefits, companies still face a lot of problems and resistance while implementing digital solutions. The reason is the complexity of the tech landscape which makes tech selection daunting.

Many different tools and applications can provide support throughout the procurement process. Some technologies are already in use and very much beneficial while others are still evolving. Some are not yet mature enough to be widely industrialized.

As a result, companies that dive straight into technology decisions may leave value on the table.

Make the Right Decision with UniAspect Digital

The need for quality components and services from suppliers is greater than ever for procurement teams across industries. Failures can result in increased costs - in the form of warranty claims, product recalls, and lawsuits - and damage revenue and branding irrevocably.

Digital technologies have the power to elevate the quality of procurement management to entirely new levels with greater accuracy. All due to big data, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, and collaborative platforms. Businesses are now better able to anticipate and mitigate quality failures.

The advantages of going digital are substantial. By our estimates, tech-based solutions can reduce issues with procurement quality by 60% to 70%.


“Digital tools have transformed how companies do procurement and do business,” says Aligned Automation CEO Nitin Ahuja. “We are reaching a new phase in business strategy, where procurement is no longer simply an enabler of cost reduction. Rather, procurement has the opportunity to become a creator of competitive advantage.”
