Spend Analysis & Visualisation

The team at Acquire Procurement Services specialise in crunching and visualising spend data for large organisations. Often information in the data is dirty and requires significant cleaning before it can be used. In this example, suppliers had numerous names used by the various government agencies.

Unfortunately, clean data can sometimes be as useless as the original dirty data if the data can not be visualised in a meaningful way. Our team focus on using some new techniques to provide some alternative data visualisations that are both interactive and informative.
