Vendors & Suppliers

Apptio’s Vendors & Suppliers solution provides IT finance leaders with visibility into the entirety of their external technology spend. It combines contract, purchase order, accounts payable, and invoice data into a single system so IT finance leaders can understand each contract’s business value, recommend adjustment or cancellation of contracts prior to renewal, reallocate unused and open purchase orders, and optimize contracts with managed service providers (MSPs).
