Companies are now regularly able to identify gaps in their supplier agreements. While the TRACK Platform automates contract compliance, such as lunch deductions, per diems, transit times, rounding and many others; Insights-as-a-Service takes it a step further and highlights where your contract terms and conditions are generating savings or costing you money. Would you like know how much you have been charged for items outside of the terms & conditions of supplier agreements? With Insights-as-a-Service, you are not only able to identify these charges, but you will be able to take action and adjust your day to day operations to eliminate leakage.
