THINKstrategies, Inc., the leading strategic consulting company focused on the business implications of the on-demand services market, announced today that Rosslyn Analytics has been named the latest winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards program, which is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits being delivered by today's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.
The BoSS Awards program was announced in January 2009 to bring attention to SaaS companies that are producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations. These benefits include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.
Rosslyn Analyticsâ pre-built applications run on Rapidintel, a web-based automated spend analytics (SaaS) platform that aggregates data from multiple sources, such as accounts payable, procurement, travel and procurement cards, into a single online view of all organizational spending activity. Rapidintel automates the collection, categorization, reporting and monitoring of enterprise-wide spend data.
An example of the measurable business benefits of Rosslyn Analyticsâ spend analysis capabilities is Clifford Chance, one of the world's leading law firms. The firm achieved an ROI of over 100% within eight weeks of using the Rapidintel platform by being able to more easily and effectively extract customer data from Oracle and other third-party data feeds around the world. Today, 150 users across Clifford Chance have access to spend intelligence generated by Rapidintel, including global, regional and country-specific finance and procurement leaders, and category managers. As a result, the firmâs global management team has gained real-time visibility of its company-wide spend data which has permitted it to quickly drive down business costs through improved risk analysis, contract and supplier management, and strategic sourcing.
It is for these reasons that Rosslyn Analytics has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace Award winner. A summary of the company's winning BoSS Award submission can be found at http://www.saas-showplace.com/awardSummary.php?key=1435.
