Smart Spend Management
NPG's Smart Spend is a unique and proprietary spend management service that combines results from cost audits and baselines into a centralized cloud platform that stores a company's location information, invoices, contracts, inventory and supplier spend. The Smart Spend platform is designed with automated workflows to easily manage payment approval processes with specialized analysis tools that automatically compare invoiced amounts to the actual contracted pricing for such services—catching Provider and Carrier contract to invoice billing errors. The system then allows for the tracking of ongoing disputes. Smart Spend also tracks invoice schedules and sends automated alerts if one is missing or not paid by user defined deadlines.
