Lavante was arguably the first provider in the audit recovery sector to focus on commercializing technology and selling direct to customers rather than leveraging it as a means to make solution delivery more effective through a consulting or managed services offering. Since introducing its capabilities over a decade ago, the Lavante solution has evolved materially, extending well past its audit recovery roots. But we would be negligent if we did not mention Lavante has continued to expand its capabilities as a technology solution to collect and manage basic supplier details, contract and PO/invoice information to enable invoice and statement auditing scenarios in a more proactive manner than traditional services-oriented solutions (although audit recovery firms like PRGX and Apex Analytix have become significantly more technology centric-in the past decade as well). This Spend Matters PRO research brief provides an introduction to Lavante’s solution, including an overview of its audit recovery, fraud detection, vendor compliance and supplier management capabilities, as well as its supplier networked-based approach to managing information.
