Spend Management: Driving Added Value & Efficiency with P2P Automation

Share

On-demand Webinar | Free

There’s no denying the importance of spend management in today’s business landscape. Streamlined spend can drive value across the entire enterprise via greater efficiency, improved productivity, and reduced costs and risks. Controlling spend, however, is easier said than done … 

During this webinar, we’ll take a big-picture view of spending and explore why P2P automation is such an effective tool for addressing common spend-related challenges, such as:

  • Cost — not knowing exactly what’s being bought, from who or for how much contributes to increased expenses
  • Inefficiency — paper is often stored at every desk level, leading to misfiled documents & internal frustration
  • Compliance — manual processes make it difficult to remain compliant with privacy laws (e.g., OFAC,HIPAA, tax IDs, bank info, etc.)
  • Visibility — managers often don’t have the data needed to effectively manage workloads or track performances 

Looking for spend management best practices that will carry your P2P team through 2019 and beyond? Register now!
