New York and London, 20 October 2014: Rosslyn Analytics today unveiled the next-generation in supplier performance management technology with the launch of RAPid Supplier Performance Analytics, the first business application of RAPid InTouch, an innovative business tool that opens up the world of big analytics by making it possible for non-technical users to collect and connect unstructured ideas from humans to structured company data.
"The last bastion of analytics - and the most exciting - is the ability for organizations to tap into the knowledge, opinions and ideas of people,"said Charles Clark, CEO of Rosslyn Analytics. "Rosslyn Analytics has made human connected analytics a reality by designing new technologies that make collecting data from any source possible so assessing the performance of 10,000 suppliers is as easy as one!”
Supplier performance analytics
RAPid Supplier Performance Analytics is the first business application to be created using RAPid InTouch, a ground-breaking technology that promises to change how organizations obtain data regardless of source.
This next generation supplier performance management application addresses a specific and costly issue facing procurement professionals - an historical inability to link disparate data sources together to paint a complete and accurate picture of the risks, costs and opportunities of partnering with suppliers.
According Rosslyn Analytics, 90 percent of procurement teams do not collect performance data on suppliers and of the 10 percent that do, the information is not connected to spend data required to obtain a 360-degree of suppliers and the associated risks, costs and opportunities.
Deployed online in days, RAPid Supplier Performance Analytics delivers value quickly, helping organizations to better manage costs, alleviate risks and drive continuous process improvement:
The new RAPid Supplier Performance Analytics builds out the company’s comprehensive suite of integrated procurement solutions consisting of spend analytics, contract management, forensics analytics and expense analytics. These and other data quality apps come with an annual subscription to the RAPid analytics platform.
