budget-centric purchasing help eliminate rogue spending

Our research shows that many organizations’ procurement activities take place independently, without the benefit of a solid foundation of budgeting controls to maintain oversight. Innovative organizations have discovered strategies to integrate budget centric purchasing, rein in unregulated manual purchasing procedures, and effectively bring all company spend into a controlled environment.

In this on-demand webinar, Jimmy LeFever of PayStream Advisors and Pierre-Marie Rallu of Determine discuss the latest market research on eProcurement, budgeting technology and budget centric purchasing. They also welcome a case study presenter, a senior procurement executive from a global music entertainment group to tell their success story. Find out how the team successfully implemented procurement technology to reduce costs and streamline a volatile budgeting cycle.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Automate business spend policy rules for continuous oversight
  • Leverage spend data to strategically adjust budgets
  • Provide staff with built-in competitive pricing capability for smarter buying
  • Develop a budget centric purchasing approach and strategy

This on-demand webinar will arm you with the tools you need to improve process efficiency, increase visibility into spend, practice budget centric purchasing and ultimately capture tremendous competitive advantage for your organization.
