Overview

Cognitive Spend Analytics monitors invoices in real-time across product, vendor, and regional landscapes, while automatically classifying the spend. When a single or collective spend crosses a threshold, an automated exception is raised, identifying the spend category or transaction. The system also provides the ability to analyze spend over multiple dimensions, and drill down to transaction-level details.
