Over recent years, there have been various industry developments that served as or caused trends in procurement. These procurement trends include technology changes, novel strategic approaches, new processes, and necessary adaptations to change. As supply chains become increasingly complex, procurement has become highly crucial and influential in the production process and continues to grow.
SpendEdge’s contract analytics are created to deploy contract management best practices for an optimal growth of your organization.
Contract negotiations are time-sensitive and often they can fall apart because legal and procurement teams don’t react quickly to customers’ needs, or because they go back and forth redlining and revising MSA and SOW. Oftentimes it is a lack of reliable data that prolongs the negotiation and contract management best practices because both parties, buyers and suppliers, are not confident they are getting the best value out of this contractual relationship. Our objective is to remove the guesswork, provide you with timely and accurate contract analytics, and advise you through the contract negotiation process in order for both you and your prospect suppliers to land on a mutually beneficial contractual agreement, with confidence and without wasting time. SpendEdge has provided clients with negotiating and contract analytics advisory services for POs, SOWs, and MSAs.
SpendEdge has delivered unwavering contract supporting services to top-tier clients looking to shake up the status quo and review long-standing contract terms that could be outdated and no longer competitive, and as a result capping the value realization opportunities for our clients. Our 17+ years of contract management best practices advisory solutions have provided us with the confidence, expertise, and tools needed to come in and audit your PO, contract terms, contract pricing, and supplier relationship and provide actionable insights on how to maximize value from current engagements or look to replace them with new vendors.

I am really satisfied with their level of understanding of what our needs are and how the results are sharply focused on such without wasting time on peripheral subjects.
The interim reports are very helpful to track the progress and we are impressed with the way in which the project is moving, as we had discussed on kick-off calls.
Thank you, your team and everybody for what I think is a very comprehensive report which has come together here and quite a wealth of information.
