The different use cases for knooing

Get an insight on what we can do for you and your individual requirements:

Portfolio Optimization and Vendor Consolidation

Customers are looking to save license costs by consolidating their application portfolio. But how can they select the right solutions based on business requirements without having in-depth knowledge of all capabilities of the existing landscape? This is where knooing can help. Our technology analyzes the existing applications and vendors, and then automatically matches the new business inquires with them. This way customers receive data-driven assistance to make the right decision based on their individual needs. knooing allows the customer to always have transparency of their existing vendor landscape broken down to capability level. Thereby they can easily identify overlaps as well as cost cutting/saving opportunities.

Sustainable Vendor Usage and Benchmarking

Customers want to save resources within contract (re)negotiations and make sustainable new investment decisions for long-term strategical and operational success. However, the effort to constantly challenge and benchmark existing vendors and additionally compare them to the external market in the daily business, brings even experts to their (capacity) limits. With knooing, customers can now easily transfer these tasks onto the platform where they can directly oppose actively used vendors against new suppliers depending on their individual business requirements. Thereby they can then leverage competitive effects and find new potential suppliers on the market that are more advanced or cost-efficient.

Innovation Scouting

Customers want to stay competitive and gain professional advantage by detecting and using new technologies or discovering hidden champions. The efforts to find and evaluate new vendors can be time intense and arbitrary. Additionally, new tech-companies often don’t have the means to put themselves on the radar with expensive marketing measurements. But how can they be found? Innovation Scouts use knooing as objective evaluation instance that scans the entire market quickly, holistically, and neutrally, solely based on the individual business criteria. This makes the results not only comparable but also structures the entire procedure in a measurable way.

Procurement Process Digitization

Customers want to make their Rfx processes more efficient by digitizing and streamlining the different steps along the Procurement channel and interconnecting the various stakeholders. In order to allow such a universal approach, knooing integrates directly in the customers’ procurement systems and works as single source of truth for the entire process. knooing’s functionalities unify Vendor Management, Business Demand Management, Innovation Scouting and Purchase Processing for a lean and effective Procurement. Moreover, it is equally available for Business, IT and Procurement which allows an easy collaboration and communication.

Building In-House Knowledge Database

Customers want to increase their performance sustainability by leveraging and reutilizing data and knowledge collected from previous projects, different stakeholders, various databases, and intangible experiences. Knowledge is often distributed unevenly and is not accessible for everyone. knooing offers an intelligent way of collecting and storing the entire knowledge regarding vendors, capabilities, projects, contracts, white papers, references, evaluations, personal input, and more in one place. The information can be analyzed comprehensively and accurately retrieved in seconds based on the individual requirement.
