Unlocking the Power of Big Data in Global Procurement

Advances in technology are making it possible to generate more data than ever before. Businesses can now quantify, measure, and track every single interaction, transaction, and engagement in excruciating detail. When we collect and analyze these “big data,” we can gain tremendous insights into business processes, including global procurement strategy.

The Impact of Big Data on Global Procurement

Global procurement focuses entirely on obtaining greater efficiencies and streamlining purchasing operations. Big data is revolutionizing this field by providing insights that allow businesses to refine strategies and processes with greater precision than ever before. Companies leveraging big data can resolve problems and challenges more effectively, using concrete data instead of intuition and instinct. A study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management found that companies in the top third of their industry using data-driven decision-making were 5% more productive and 6% more profitable than those that didn’t.

How Hubzone Depot Utilizes Technology

At Hubzone Depot, we harness the power of big data to optimize global procurement strategies through various advanced techniques.
Transaction Analysis
Traditional analysis methods typically include only 250,000 transactions. However, our proprietary database analyzes every purchase, allowing us to harvest all potential savings, not just the low-hanging fruit.
Audits and Benchmarks
Using Microsoft Dynamics, our database procurement software, we conduct sophisticated audits, benchmarking, and analysis. This technology ensures prices are billed correctly and identifies savings opportunities based on your purchases.
RFPs
We employ state-of-the-art eRFx software to ensure our RFPs remain best in class. Our rigorous process for all suppliers includes auctions, bidding, and other tools to secure the best possible deals.
