How we do things

Our process

  • Step 1: Data Consolidation:
    We gather all your data, from invoices, contracts, credit card transactions, and POs. Then we match and connect things together to give you a single view of your total spend.
  • Step 2: Supplier name normalization:
    Our system identifies and corrects supplier name variations, considering the full context of each transaction. No more confusion with names like "Verizonb," "Verizion," and "Verizon IT" - we'll standardize them all to "Verizon." We’ll also show you any subsidiaries, like TracFone Wireless or Verizon Fios, linked to its parent company.
  • Step 3: Categorization:
    We create a custom taxonomy tailored to your unique data. It’ll have three levels of granularity (e.g., Professional Services > Financial Services > Audit). This provides a procurement-specific perspective that goes beyond standard general ledger (GL) taxonomies.
  • Step 4: Cost centers:
    We clean up your cost center mappings, and can suggest new ones too. For example, if cloud hosting is marked as a Direct Cost, we'll suggest the R&D function and the IT Infrastructure department.
  • Step 5: Your review:
    Have your own taxonomy? Simply send it to us and we'll integrate it smoothly Then, our rule engine provides additional control. Your team can add custom rules, such as tagging transactions from a reseller that only sells for a specific category.
