In this Spend Matters PRO Vendor Analysis, we give an overview of Owlin, a risk and intelligence solution built to help customers monitor what is being said and published about them, their suppliers and, in fact, any topic, e.g., customers, competitors or commodities.
From its founding as an Amsterdam-based newsroom, Owlin has grown to be a provider of adverse news and risk intelligence with in-depth global coverage that caters to organizations wanting to keep an eye on their portfolio of suppliers, customers and investments. And, because it built a flexible solution that captures and analyzes a vast amount of sources in many languages, the solution can be used to monitor any topic, not just companies. The solution’s flexibility extends to other use cases like category management and innovation which benefit from capturing relevant news and information, thus setting Owlin apart from other SxM/Risk Management solutions. In addition, its rich API can make it a valuable add-on to procurement solutions that execute other processes.
Here’s why Owlin matters:
- To the market — Keeping up with news on various topics (suppliers, regulations, etc.) is important, but the volume of news produced makes that a challenge. Owlin is a great way to filter through the noise.
- To customers — Owlin ensures organizations never miss vital information about emerging risks, opportunities or trends, thereby increasing their productivity and efficiency.
- To potential buyers — Organizations looking for a configurable but powerful solution to watch specific companies and topics should consider Owlin as a standalone solution or integrate it with their other solutions (SxM, BI, etc.) to provide outside-in and contextual insights.
