Use our solutions to give you more leverage and awareness

Procurement Catalyst enriches your supplier data with our market intelligence - so you have more understanding of your supplier portfolio, including:

  • ‘group spend analysis’ so you can instantly see where you’re buying from multiple companies in the same group
  • ‘supplier dependency’ so you can see your spend as a percentage of each supplier’s turnover
  • the distribution of your supplier base by location, size or financials – use our solutions to analyze your suppliers to help you make sure it’s balanced according to your risk parameters
  • the latest developments – we can monitor your suppliers for changes including adverse news, changes in ownership, financial weakness, changes in management and so on

Fast, automated financial spreading – combining artificial intelligence and the human touch

Our new spreading tool harnesses the power of machine learning, combined with a human expert to check the output, for super-fast and accurate financial spreads.

Simply upload the financial data in pdf format and get the output delivered seamlessly either in your own ‘private Orbis zone’ or your Catalyst portfolio.

The company’s financials are spread into the standard Orbis financial format, so you can:

  • compare the company to all the others in your portfolio - and the Orbis database
  • get all the financial strength scores and metrics for your company
  • include the company in your risk assessments, scorecards and dashboards

This tool is powered by the award-winning QUIQspread™ from Moody’s Analytics. The tool works with Orbis, Credit Catalyst and Procurement Catalyst. It’s ideal if you have financials for a company in more detail than are available in Orbis, or a more recent version has been sent to you directly.
