Transform Indirect Purchasing with Marketplace as a Solution (MaaS™)


What is Spend Under Management?

In simple terms, Spend Under Management is the percentage of annual, addressable spend being purchased utilizing preferred supplier contracts. With indirect spend, most companies focus on purchasing through preferred contracts. There’s no strategic approach to indirect spend management; in some cases, no resources exist to consistently ensure cost erosion and maverick spending doesn’t occur.

When you effectively manage indirect spend, you have greater control over the cost and have the right products delivered from the best suppliers.

  • Managing indirect spend effectively depends on several factors:
  • Full visibility of spend
  • Spend and category consolidation
  • Strategic sourcing
  • Employee education
  • Change management mindset

How Can Marketplace as a Solution Help My Business

You can’t manage or fix what you can’t see, which is why spend data and visibility are essential to getting spend under management. MaaS™ is a low-cost, buying platform where categories are aggregated with preferred suppliers and spend controls, ensuring buying only happens for the products and services approved for purchase.

We understand your key issues and created MaaS™ to solve them. Don’t have enough staff to handle admin work? Poor communication with suppliers? Lack of visibility around spend?

Supplier Management Using Marketplace as a Solution

With MaaS™, only strategic and preferred suppliers are added to the platform.

Driving spend through preferred suppliers improves spend compliance and improves performance-to-contracts.

With a one-stop shopping platform, you can buy effectively and collaborate with suppliers from requisition to the final payment. MaaS™ improves supplier management by bridging the communication gap and making data as well as order visibility accessible for both parties.
