Rely on artificial intelligence and machine learning to provide targeted content and tailored steps that guide users and give them just what they need throughout the procurement process. Meanwhile, processes like invoice and PO reviews can be smarter and faster with a system that automatically checks fields, line-item details, account codes, and more to reduce exceptions, increase accuracy, strengthen cost control.

Manage all spend in one place

Gain more control over spending by bringing all indirect and direct spend, as well as services procurement, into one system. From contract and catalog items to one-off tail spend, you can ensure your policies are applied consistently for greater compliance. By integrating direct materials procurement into your PLM system and process, you can bring effective cost control to product planning and protect your margins through delivery. And you can manage the unique industry requirements of pre-negotiated MRO, unplanned repairs, and work orders tied to owned assets.
