Webinar: Spend Analysis: The Foundation for Procurement Excellence

New Research

webinar description

Within the world of procurement, it has never been more important for procurement teams to harness the power of their data and transform their functions into true hubs of intelligence and performance excellence. Procurement departments that utilize automated spend analysis solutions to achieve enterprise-level spend visibility have a truly powerful asset that can be used to drive strategic planning, refine operational focus and improve business results.

In partnership with Ardent Partners, we have developed a research report that delves into the value proposition of automated spend analysis and provides procurement professionals with an overview of how these tools can impact almost every facet of the modern-day procurement operation.

Join us for this live webinar on February 7th at 2:00 pm EST for an in-depth look into this research.

Reasons to attend the webinar:
  • Fundamentals to develop a case for spend analytics

  • Criteria for becoming a "Best-in-Class" procurement organization

  • Recommendations on how to evaluate spend analysis platforms on the market

  • Free spend analysis research brief by Ardent Partners

  • Access to Q&A with SpendHQ CEO, Tom Beaty & Ardent Partners Chief Research Officer, Andrew Bartolini
