Our Media Client’s Experience.
We wanted to analyze our Travel and expense spend across business units. The challenge was analyzing travel spend through “Concur” that was only providing partial insight. To do a more holistic spend analysis, we needed to consolidate data across various sources like Concur, HR data, P-Card data, Travel agency data, Contract data for hotels / car rental companies and business rules and policies to ensure we can analyze compliance to organization policies. After comparing multiple solutions out there in the market, we selected EzDataMunch as they had the most comprehensive playbook. We were able to analyze data as we needed, a simple user interface, data uploaded in cloud and best of all – we could see the savings of almost $2.5Mn in 60 days!
