Advanced Spend Analytics is a powerful reporting tool that gives you detailed insights into your expenditure in Compleat.
You can reach Advanced Spend Analysis straight from your homepage, giving you instant access to reports on everything from your nominal spend over time & detailed supplier spend analysis, to line level data & the potential savings you could be making in a wide range of areas.
The Advanced Spend Analytics tool is split into four categories, each containing multiple reports visualized in tables & graphs:
- Spend (Spend Over Time, Site Analysis, Nominal Analysis)
- Suppliers (Supplier Spend, Categories)
- Live Level (Line Information, Line Data)
- Savings & Categorization (Savings, Categorization)
In this guide, we summarize the information available to you in each report, & give you tips on how to get the most out of your Advanced Spend Analytics reports.

You can also see graphs showing your total spend & potential savings per procurement category, alongside a graph showing your spend over time.
Spend Over Time
The Spend Over Time report presents your approved spend in Compleat over various time periods, breaking it down into spend by base total, base net total, & spend by each individual user.
You can use the filter tool in the top-right to narrow down or broaden the results you see in the report according to the year or procurement category.
The Site Analysis report provides a useful breakdown of your company's spend across each of its sites, including the percentage of spent attributed to each site.
The Suppliers & Documents graph shows the number of documents (transactions in Compleat) & suppliers behind each site's total spend figure.
The Nominal Analysis report shows the spend associated to your company's nominal codes.
Just like the Site Analysis report in the same category, the Nominal Analysis report breaks down the spend attributed to each nominal code by supplier & number of documents (transactions in Compleat).
The Supplier Spend report provides a list of every single supplier in your company, showing each supplier's procurement category, base total note, average invoice value, number of documents, & the date of the latest document recorded in Compleat.
You can double-click a supplier in this list to drill down to detail spend data, including document reference numbers, line descriptions, quantity & base net within each document, & document date.
The bar charts within the report show your top 10 suppliers based on spend & number of documents.
The Categories report within the Suppliers area shows your supplier spend attributed to each procurement category in both table & graph format.
You can double-click a procurement category in the report to drill down to the suppliers & invoice data behind the category's spend.
In the Line Information report, you can see the total supplier & document count within a year, including the number of line descriptions.
This is a full view of your line level data in table format, showing supplier name, procurement category, document information like line descriptions & document quantity, as well as the financial value of each line.
