The Problem
Understanding, and acting upon, the trends and patterns in your purchase-to-pay data is the dream. The reality is often the opposite, with many streams of data needed to generate meaningful information, rendering it almost impossible to get the real story behind your processes.

Our Solution
Fourth P2P analytics dashboards show you everything you need to know. Automated purchasing compliance reporting enables you to benchmark all vendors on delivery and pricing compliance. Now you can negotiate better prices and streamline your vendor base.


The Problem
No matter the number of locations, managing cost before it is spent, identifying causes of waste, avoiding over-ordering and excess inventory holding, and reducing theft can be time-consuming, labor intensive and, at times, impossible.

Our Solution
Fourth's inventory control software and interactive analytics dashboards work together to show who's accountable across all inventory, including non-food and non-beverage items. Inventory check results are analyzed to spot trends. Smart charts highlight discrepancies between actual and theoretical. Excess inventory holdings are eliminated and waste is typically reduced by 1-3% through full accountability.
