The Challenge

In order to uncover the key drivers of spending increases, procurement teams need quick answers to their questions. The procurement team had access to a dashboard built by an analyst.

However they couldn’t drill down to understand the key drivers of change. Instead, the procurement team had to extract data from a database and manually analyse it.

The procurement team needs to quickly identify and address any unexpected changes in spending patterns, before it impacts a project or entity’s bottom line. However, due to the difficulties in finding insights from their raw data, the procurement team’s analysis were reactive rather than proactive.

The Solution

With Hyper Anna, the procurement team can get their questions answered on the spot and in real time.

They love that they can delve deeper into their data without having to extract data from a database. The procurement team now spends less time extracting data and more time focusing on higher priority items, such as negotiating favourable contract outcomes.
