This Procurement Spend Analytics Tableau Dashboard provides business users an overview of their spend volume by vendor and by category. Users can quickly view who their top vendors and spend categories are, across spend volume, spend per vendor, active vendors, and new vendors.
This dashboard also provides a performance overview, comparing current and previous spend metrics.
This dashboard is designed for procurement managers and specialists who are looking to uncover which spend categories drive the most purchasing value, and which vendors they are spending the most money at.
This dashboard will ultimately help procurement understand who are their top vendors, top categories, and drive business decisions around where and how their dollars are spent.
For dashboards, a cockpit refers to the main page that summarizes measures and metrics that are relevant to the business unit or responsibility area of a manager. This tab provides a high-level overview of all four indicators: total spend, active vendors, new vendors, and spend per vendor.
Users can also view who the top 5 vendors and categories are, as well as a pareto chart that describes how many vendors or categories account for a majority of total spend.
This dashboard provides a monthly trend analysis of the four indicators, vendor, and categories, and compares it to previous metrics and changes from the previous period.
The final tab offers users the ability to select a specific vendor and observe monthly trends and spend categories for that specific vendor.
We hope you found this dashboard useful in your pursuit to identify top vendors and spend categories in your organization! If you have any questions, need help, or are interested in having a team of Tableau experts design dashboards for you, feel free to reach out!
