Machine learning is changing the world.

Spend Network is already using machine learning to categorize all of our documents. The results are stunning. Hundreds of millions of documents can be labelled with highly accurate categorisations in a matter of hours.

Doing the same work manually would have taken 852 years.

Let that sink in.

An algorithm can enhance and augment data with high levels of accuracy and do it forty-four thousand times faster than a human.

And it’s not just speed.

Our algorithm doesn’t care about language.

The document we’re analysing could be in Greek, Farsi, Danish, Welsh or Spanish and our algorithm will still be able to categorize that document.

And, we’re only just getting started.

Our machine learning means that we’ve been able to predict the carbon emissions of every public tender in the UK.

New breakthroughs in information science are being reported every day.

Better intelligence on scope three emissions is here already.

Better intelligence on fraud is here already.

We’re dedicated to finding new patterns in purchasing and spending data and we’re using a data store of over one hundred million documents to achieve it.

What do you want to know?

→ Does this tender comply with policy?

→ Who will win a tender?

→ Am I paying too much?

→ Will a tender be competitive?

→ Where is my corruption risk?

→ Where are the best-performing suppliers?

The next wave of intelligence is machine intelligence.

If you care about contracting or spending, then our work will help you catch that wave.
