Post Merger Procurement Savings

Once data sources are merged from the separate companies, the benefits in dollars saved become more apparent. By locating major data issues early on and saving time, the merging companies are able to synergize their processes in terms of productivity and cost reduction and will enable both organizations involved in the merger to understand each other more quickly.

Cost benefits are most often seen within vendor management, where procurement is a big piece of the money savings as seen in the graph. Developing best practices in sourcing products and services serve as the optimal way to provide these savings, but often the first step is to have accurate, linked data sources from both companies.

Post Merger Procurement Savings

It is evident that no solution has 100% match accuracy, as seen in this chart. Benchmarked in 15 different studies, DataMatch Enterprise was proven to find on average 5-12% more matches than comparable solutions from leading software vendors, IBM and SAS.
