Webinar: Reinventing Procure-to-Pay

Top 5 Strategies that Procurement and Payables Need to Know

webinar description

When both procurement and accounts payables collaborate in a holistic, end-to-end procure-to-pay (P2P) process and platform, organizations can find new ways to create savings and open doors to profit-driving opportunities. Unfortunately, many organizations seem to forget there are 2 P’s in P2P and so lose out on much of the strategic value they could otherwise deliver to their organization.

In this webinar you will learn how SAP Ariba can help bring procurement and accounts payables together in a single process and on a single platform to drive efficiencies and compliance, capture spend savings, create value for their organization, and become strategic partners to the business. View this webinar to understand how you can:

All webinar registrants will receive a free copy of Ardent Partners’ latest reports: "Getting Started with Digital Transformation: Five Tips for Accounts Payable Leaders" and "Getting Started with Digital Transformation: Five Tips for Procurement Leaders"

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Unlock value by linking the 2 P’s in P2P into a holistic process

  • Prepare for digital transformation by simplifying and paring down processes

  • Implement a successful supplier enablement strategy

  • Define and track relevant key performance metrics

  • Engage key stakeholders early and help them drive effectiveness in P2P processes
