A standard request of today’s procurement organizations is to deliver savings. Unfortunately, not all procurement organisations are able to track their planned and realized savings. Just ask your CFO and she or he will quickly state, “If you can’t see it, you can’t measure it, and you can’t recognize it as savings.” Savings tracking is vital to procurement success, credibility and recognition in any organisation; savings tie immediately into the organization’s financial results. Without savings tracking, procurement is mediocre at best and unable to show basic value contribution.
Equally important is having the right savings tracking technology partner to help deliver more savings. In February 2017 Gartner, Inc. released their latest Magic Quadrant for Strategic Sourcing Applications. BravoSolution was positioned in the top quadrant as a top procurement technology vendor for the fourth straight report (2010, 2013, 2015 and 2017), and was among the most highly-placed vendors for both its “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute.”
With BravoSolution as their technology partner, clients utilize the most advanced capabilities with BravoAdvantage, the world’s strategic procurement platform.
