CommCARE Intelligence

Business Intelligence through Analytics

We are seeing a shift from transactional competency to strategic excellence for a value focused supply chain in Healthcare. In many healthcare organizations, purchasing and procurement represents the second largest expense and is often manual, paper based or managed through legacy systems which allow bad practices and inefficient transaction delivery to creep into the process.  These processes also make any analytical activity very difficult if not impossible.

CommCARE Intelligence allows you to leverage visual supply chain and organizational spend data, giving decision makers powerful intelligence to make better strategic decisions.

Traditional supply chain analytics take time to compile and present. With CommCARE Intelligence you receive real-time, rich data from one system to measure supply chain performance and savings.

With CommCARE Intelligence generating rich reports or viewing graphical data is simple and easy.

A key driver of supply chain performance is the ability to maintain relationships and visibility with your largest suppliers to eliminate costly errors. Monitoring spend of the organizational breadth you manage gives you the ability to negotiate and build stronger bonds with your supplier community, extracting more value out of each relationship.
