Summary

The procurement function and responsibility is increasingly seen as a strategic area within the organization with greater opportunity for deeper savings, and procurement departments are feeling the pressure. Not only are they tasked with driving savings and improving visibility into spend, they also must keep up with complex regulatory requirements and globalization challenges. This free webinar will shed light on new data as well as key steps and strategies procurement professionals can use to meet the demands of a global marketplace, while achieving tighter alignment between procurement and C-suite initiatives.

You’ll learn:

  • How to evaluate existing processes and prioritize highly tedious functions that can benefit from automation
  • Best practices for centralizing and standardizing procurement processes across departments
  • How to accelerate supplier validation and maintain a compliant supplier list

Jimmy LeFever of PayStream Advisors and Foy Mainor of Paramount WorkPlace will review the latest procurement survey results on what’s working and what’s not in procurement departments like yours. They will also explore real-world steps and strategies for streamlining the requisition and procurement processes and improving supplier relationships. Join us for this interactive session with Q&A.
