Webinar:
How Benchmarking Helps the CFO Optimize Spend Management

webinar description

Senior finance executives often have a gut feeling about whether the spend-management efforts at their companies are optimized, but there’s no substitute for hard numbers when it comes to ensuring operational excellence. This Webcast will gather a group of finance and technology experts to discuss (1) why benchmarking is used by forward-looking finance chiefs to optimize spend-management efforts and (2) what critical key performance indicators should be used to benchmark and improve performance in four key areas:
Savings (bottom-line impact that sourcing and procurement efforts deliver)
Efficiency (strength of processes across procurement, invoicing, and expense management)
Digitization (success in digitizing business relationships with suppliers)
Compliance (effectiveness in driving compliance through spend management)

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Savings (bottom-line impact that sourcing and procurement efforts deliver)

  • Efficiency (strength of processes across procurement, invoicing, and expense management)

  • Digitization (success in digitizing business relationships with suppliers)
