Frequently Asked Questions

What is a pricing analysis?

A product pricing analysis evaluates an organization’s procurement spend to find ways to reduce costs, increase efficiency, and improve vendor relationships. It can provide critical procurement information, such as the company’s total expenditure per commodity, supplier, or order value.

Why do you need a pricing analysis?

A procurement price analysis equips businesses with the necessary insights to make informed decisions and optimize their procurement strategies. According to industry estimates, supplier spending can account for 40–80% of a company’s total spend. This is a significant expense that presents an opportunity for cost reduction. Through price analysis, companies can:

  • Track historical spend
  • Garner valuable data that can be used for forecasting and future budgeting
  • Identify savings opportunities
  • Highlight procurement challenges and areas for improvement
  • Evaluate supplier performance and track contract compliance
  • Recognize opportunities for supplier consolidation to reduce costs

How do you do a pricing analysis?

A well-thought-out strategy and plan are necessary for producing reliable results from a procurement price analysis. These three steps on how to do price analysis can help you get started. 

  1. Begin by setting your objectives and identifying all sources of procurement data in your organization. This includes data from all departments that purchase products and any extra data from your suppliers.
  2. After collecting the data, consolidate it into one database. This step also entails translating all of the data into the same format, cleansing it to remove any duplicate records or errors, and cleaning up categories and definitions to standardize them.
  3. Once the data is ready, you can begin analyzing it. The cost of products should be compared to the vendor contracts to determine if they align with organizational objectives. A pricing analysis can help evaluate vendor performance and find room for purchase consolidation and savings opportunities.
