However, indirect spend management is gaining traction due to its ability to derive more value from the supplier spend. Companies are taking control over the indirect spend and creating more savings opportunities from small expenditures that are impacting the company’s bottom line.

Ways to Improve Indirect Spend Management
Establish a set of metrics
Establishing a set of metrics is one of the most important step companies need to adopt to improve indirect spend management. They must put an evaluation method and track indirect suppliers. They should create simple KPIs to measure contract compliance, quality, and cost competitiveness. Also, data should be made available to all stakeholders and departments for better decision making.

Consolidate indirect spend into specific categories
Often employees are not involved while developing a category policy. They order supplies without any regard for potential savings. Engaging employees in the process can help companies to consolidate purchases, implement company-wide contracts, and reap benefits such as volume discounts and favorable contract terms.
