Webinar:
Three Foundations for Best Practice Procurement

webinar description

Join us for this exclusive webinar co-hosted by Peter Smith, managing director of Spend Matters UK, in which he will be revealing the 3 foundations for procurement success.

The theme of the webinar is integration in all its different forms and what makes it such an important topic in procurement today. We’ll be looking at how procurement teams can best integrate with the rest of the business to improve returns, where the market is going in terms of integrated source to pay software vs tactical best of breed, and how to win over the IT team when procurement projects involve system integration.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Successfully integrating procurement into the rest of the business to drive savings and returns

  • Winning the IT team over where new procurement initiatives involve system integration

  • An examination of the benefits of a fully integrated and organically-grown Source to Pay solution
