Artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data. What are these tools and what do they mean for procurement? 

Although things like artificial intelligence (AI) are becoming increasingly relevant to back-office automation software, PayStream has found that the average procurement team is often more concerned with controlling spend in their procurement processes than implementing “futuristic” technologies. Fortunately, the technologies of the future can be leveraged to solve some very old problems, like poor visibility into purchasing, off-contract or maverick spend, and high costs in procurement overall. First, however, the success of both efficient procurement and innovative technology adoption depend on one thing-good data.

When organizations streamline the intake of spend data in procurement, they are able to see into and analyze purchasing activity to strategically enhance procurement across all functions, teams, and business operations. Strong data also enables them to prepare for modern tools like AI to further improve efficiency.

Join PayStream Advisors and P2P expert, Basware, as we explore how organizations and their procurement teams can streamline procurement data to improve control over spend and prepare for the innovative procurement technologies. This webinar will demystify terms like AI and machine learning and explore what they will do for procurement departments over the next several years.
