    Procurement Analytics Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:

    Client Situation:

    The client, a large multinational manufacturing company, was facing challenges in its procurement process. The procurement team was struggling to handle the high volume of transactions and manage relationships with numerous vendors. This resulted in high costs, delays in product delivery, and a lack of visibility into the overall procurement spend. The client′s senior management recognized the need for a more strategic and centralized approach to procurement in order to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and gain better control over their supply chain.

    Consulting Methodology:

    To address this issue, our consulting team adopted a three-phase methodology – Assessment, Implementation, and Optimization.

    Assessment: The first phase involved a thorough analysis of the client′s existing procurement process. This included a review of their procurement policies, procedures, and systems, as well as an evaluation of their spend data. We also conducted interviews with the procurement team and key stakeholders to understand their pain points and gather insights from their perspective.

    Implementation: Based on our assessment, we recommended the consolidation of the client′s procurement infrastructure through the implementation of a new vendor management system (VMS). The VMS would serve as a one-stop platform for all procurement activities, from sourcing to payment processing. We also advised the client to establish a centralized procurement function that could work closely with the VMS provider and the various business units to streamline the procurement process.

    Optimization: This phase focused on continuous improvement and optimization of the new procurement process. Our team worked closely with the client to monitor KPIs, provide training, and make necessary adjustments to ensure maximum efficiency and cost savings.


    Our consulting team provided the client with the following deliverables:

    1. Procurement Assessment Report: This report included a detailed analysis of the client′s existing procurement process, highlighting areas for improvement and recommendations for streamlining the process.

    2. VMS Implementation Plan: This document outlined the steps involved in implementing the new vendor management system, including timelines, budget, and resource requirements.

    3. Centralized Procurement Function Framework: This framework defined the roles and responsibilities of the centralized procurement function and its integration with the VMS.

    4. KPI Dashboard: We developed a customized dashboard to monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) such as cost savings, contract compliance, and spend visibility.

    Implementation Challenges:

    Implementing a new VMS and centralized procurement function presented several challenges, including resistance to change from the procurement team, integration with existing systems, and data migration.

    1. Resistance to Change: The procurement team was accustomed to their existing processes and was initially hesitant to adopt the new VMS. To overcome this, we provided extensive training and conducted workshops to demonstrate the benefits of the new system.

    2. Integration with Existing Systems: The client had multiple legacy systems that were being used for different procurement activities. Integrating these systems with the VMS posed a significant technical challenge. To address this, we collaborated with the IT department to develop a robust data integration plan.

    3. Data Migration: The client′s procurement spend data was scattered across various systems and formats, making it cumbersome to consolidate and migrate to the new VMS. Our team worked with the client to clean and organize the data before migrating it to the new system.

    KPIs and Management Considerations:

    Our team established the following KPIs to measure the success of the procurement process optimization:

    1. Cost Savings: We aimed to reduce the overall procurement costs by 15% within the first year of implementation.

    2. Contract Compliance: We targeted a 90% contract compliance rate to ensure that all procurement activities were aligned with the company′s policies and procedures.

    3. Spend Visibility: Our goal was to achieve 100% spend visibility across all categories within the first year of implementation.

    4. Cycle Time Reduction: We aimed to reduce the cycle time for procurement activities by 20% through the implementation of the new VMS.

    These KPIs were closely monitored and reported to senior management on a monthly basis. The client′s procurement team also received training and ongoing support to ensure that the new process was effectively implemented.

    Management Considerations:

    The successful implementation of the new procurement process required strong support and involvement from the client′s senior management. To ensure this, our team engaged with the senior management throughout the project, providing regular updates and gathering their feedback.

    Our team also emphasized the importance of change management and provided guidance on how to effectively communicate and manage the transition to the new process with the procurement team and other stakeholders.


    The consolidation of the procurement infrastructure and introduction of a new vendor management system proved to be a game-changer for the client. Within six months of implementation, the client observed a reduction in procurement costs by 12% and achieved 95% contract compliance. The centralized procurement function and the VMS also provided greater visibility into the overall procurement spend and improved the efficiency of the process. Our team continues to work with the client to optimize the new process and identify further cost-saving opportunities. This case study highlights the importance of streamlining procurement processes and utilizing technology to improve efficiency and reduce costs. As stated by Kanverse, procurement analytics holds the key to unlocking potential savings and streamlining the procurement process (Kanverse, 2020). This case study further demonstrates the effectiveness of a structured approach, combined with change management, in driving successful transformation of procurement processes (Deloitte, 2016).
