Spend Analysis Helps a Leading Banking Sector Client Reduce Procurement Lead Times and Material Spend

Jan 25, 2018

Overview of the Banking Sector Industry

With the rising global economic uncertainty, banking sector players are starting to look beyond compliance to improve their financial performance while focusing on the business outcomes. The global banking sector is highly fragmented and comprises of retail, corporate, and investment banking, and asset and wealth management companies. The banking sector is currently dominated by Europe, which accounts for approximately 43% of the market share across the globe.

Although the banking sector is expected to showcase promising growth, several factors are expected to hinder the growth of this space. These factors include:

  • Stringent government regulations: Leading companies within the banking sector are facing relentless pressures to enhance their service offerings across niche market segments due to the fluctuating rules from governments across the globe. Additionally, leading establishments in this space are looking for effective ways of managing risks and meeting the capital and the liquidity ratio requirements.
  • Weak global economy: With the fluctuations in the global economy, the overall consumer spending is reducing, and consumers are looking to invest tactically and reduce their spending.

These factors are compelling firms in the banking sector to leverage the use of robust spend analysis solutions. Spend analysis solutions help companies quantify and improve their business decisions, which would subsequently help them cut down on maverick spends. These solutions also help firms meet the business needs and demands of their customers seamlessly while being cost-effective.request free proposal
