Actionable spend insights with Orpheus

We help companies unlock value by leveraging their purchasing to provide actionable insights that enable continuous impact in procurement. By combining services and software, we elevate the focus of spend analytics to guide procurement strategy development and execution.

Orpheus tackles typical challenges in procurement, including poor spend data quality, dispersed data, or unsustainable data. Our solutions harmonize and consolidate spend views across multiple enterprise-resource-planning (ERP) systems, geographies, sites, subsidiaries, and systems to create a “single source of truth” for organizations in their entirety.

Enriching data with our external sources creates holistic and actionable insights, while our standard, automated workflow accurately tracks and measures value from procurement initiatives. With two decades of procurement and finance data analytics experience, we’re able to transform spotty, fragmented, and distributed data into easy-to-read, fully transparent trends with our innovative spend analytics suite.

How we help clients
