HomesForHaringeyHomes for Haringey first commissioned Spikes Cavell to deliver spend analysis via the Observatory in 2009 to deliver improved spend and contract visibility and have been a constant subscriber ever since.

Having been asked to create a procurement strategy in 2009, Denislava Ivanova, Head of Procurement at Homes for Haringey, wanted to get a firm understanding of how much was spent on what and by whom to enable her to engage with stakeholders in the organisation. Previously she had received analysis from the finance system but the data didn’t support the analysis she needed to carry out.

We talked to Denislava Ivanova, Head of Procurement about her experience with Spikes Cavell’s Observatory to date.

I chose Spikes Cavell not only because they were able to transform our spend data into something ready for analysis, but also because the pre-built reports in the Observatory meant that I had immediate access to exactly the information I needed, giving me some firm foundations to build upon.
