Summary

Incorrectly completed purchase requests. Incomplete product information. Non-standardized purchase request forms. Non-PO invoices. These problems are just some of those professionals in procurement departments around the country experience daily, but are often overlooked when it comes time to improve processes. Rather than focusing on the tedious processing challenges that hurt employee experience and satisfaction, organizations look for quick fixes for more generalized problems, like “poor spend visibility” or “high processing costs.” However, the success of solving those big-picture problems often depends on ironing out the smaller, day-to-day procurement issues first.

This event will explore some of the more granular procurement challenges that plague many purchase requestors and managers in their daily activities. It will then show how today’s leading procurement automation tools help to address these problems, such as versatile PO creation tools, supplier product catalogs, approval workflows, and mobile application capabilities. It will also explore how these solutions help companies meet other more strategic goals in improving procurement management—and their bottom line.
