Business Challenge

Global manufacturing companies face a wide range of challenges including the need to adhere to local regulations related to labeling requirements and safety standards. Such factors are pressurizing manufacturing companies to adhere to the regulatory requirements without compromising on their operational efficiency. Spend data, data systems, and domain knowledge are often siloed within specific groups of teams in manufacturing companies. Therefore, leveraging spend analytics solutions has become important for companies to address such challenges.

By leveraging spend analytics solutions, the manufacturing company was looking to overcome such challenges caused by data silos and operational complexities. As a result, they approached Quantzig to gain greater visibility into their spending patterns and improve profitability.
