Extract the hidden value inside your data. We help the Purchasing Departments of large multinational companies to see exactly what is going on in Sourcing & Procurement processes and show them how to manage them in the best way. Traditional approaches on Spending Management are in the past: unifying ERPs is costly and slow in implementation; Business Intelligence tools only show aggregated data based on the poor quality of existing classification; offline manual classifications are obsolete. Creactives provides “Augmented Visibility” and “Innovative Tools” to manage Orders, Invoices and Mas-ter Data, described in different languages, with different coding, from more ERPs and other sources.
