Why Deloitte?

Deloitte’s industry-specific resources, proprietary accelerators, and extensive experience across all facets of procurement, technology, and business transformation help deliver quick wins for your business—so you can start seeing results sooner and respond to disruption faster.

What sets Deloitte apart when it comes to digital procurement transformation and intelligent spend management? Plenty. Here are just a few of the ways our team stands out.

Global scale. Deloitte has led more than 220 projects to date on SAP Ariba, SAP Fieldglass, and SAP Concur, supported by more than 1,000 practitioners globally. We understand how to implement these solutions, how to help our clients make the right decisions to realize the full value of their business case, and how to mitigate risks that could impact a successful outcome.

Invested in results. We can invest in transformation with you, putting “skin in the game” through an innovative pricing model tied to your budget, your project timeline, and the results we help you deliver. And we approach project budgets realistically, with a focus on thoroughly scoping work—to avoid unforeseen project extensions or delays, to control costs, and to ultimately deliver the best value.

End-to-end transformation. Our experience with SAP Integrated Business Planning, with SAP Ariba, Fieldglass and Concur solutions, and with the SAP S/4HANA® digital core ERP—as well as a wide variety of other ERPs— means we can help you tightly integrate technologies and processes across the entire extended supply chain—from planning to execution, and across all spend categories. That focus on end-to-end capabilities becomes critical as expectations for results rise both inside and outside your organization.

Spend specialists. Certified in SAP Ariba, Concur, and Fieldglass solutions, Deloitte brings a complete set of capabilities for enabling total, intelligent spend management—so you can get more thorough insights on how you are spending and where you could be saving. We deeply understand the spend pain points—the issues that keep procurement leaders awake at night. How do you know if you’re overpaying taxes? How do you know if you’re getting the most out of you spend management activities? How can you make direct spend more efficient and effective? Deloitte can help you find answers. When it comes to tax, for example, we can help you perform a refund study—to find and fix overpayment problems and even leverage the savings to help fund new procurement transformation projects.

Innovative. Deloitte can help your organization go the extra mile with advanced “Industry 4.0” technologies—to streamline your business and extend the impact of new digital processes. We also deeply understand more established technologies—capable of working with multiple back ends, including SAP ERP systems as well as ERPs from other vendors.

Recognized. Analyst firms ALM Intelligence, Forrester, and Gartner, for example, consistently rank Deloitte as a leader in categories central to spend management and supply chain transformation. We also have a trophy case full of SAP® Pinnacle Awards—the highest honor from SAP. In addition to winning the SAP Pinnacle Award as SAP S/4HANA Partner of the Year for three years in a row plus the 2019 SAP Pinnacle Award as Digital Partner of the Year, we have won 2018 SAP Pinnacle Awards for SAP Ariba, SAP® SuccessFactors®, and SAP Leonardo®.
