Dayton, Ohio (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
In the second quarter of 2013, Corbus, LLC rolled out its proprietary methodology created to gauge performance and identify areas of improvement within an organization: SMART (Spend Management Assessment and Roadmap Template). SMART maps an organization’s Sourcing & Procurement capability maturity level, identifies gaps to best practices, and provides an implementation roadmap to close the gaps. SMART utilizes its partner’s Spend Analytics platform, SciQuest Spend Radar, to set the spend baseline, identify potential savings opportunities, and ensures the availability of consistent, cleansed data.
“SMART is derived from decades of exceptional client service delivery, and is influenced by the experience of Corbus practitioners working with leading Blue Chip consultancies,” stated Patrick Reymann, Director, Strategic Sourcing Operations. “Our methodology yields a transformational blueprint infused with specific initiatives and governance metrics developed to drive savings and efficiency improvements.”
Aligned to three separate work streams (Process, Technology, Organization), SMART involves a 4-6 week process that includes stakeholder interviews, surveys, process mapping, spend analytics, maturity modeling, gap analysis and initiative identification. The output of SMART provides recommendations to position a client’s services toward best-in-class. Corbus provides specific, actionable and tangible results oriented improvement recommendations designed to reduce costs, improve processes and apply industry best practices.
“The SMART methodology developed by Corbus is in lockstep with SciQuest’s mission to help customers turn spending into a strategic source of savings,” said Brian Daniels, Vice President, Spend Analysis at SciQuest. “We’re thrilled to partner with Corbus to extend the value of our cloud-based business automation solutions to their customer base, helping organizations to cut costs, improve efficiency and gain visibility into and control over their spending processes.”
