Procurement Finance Alignment

Learn how to reduce misalignment between Finance and Procurement to unlock value.

In theory, Finance and Procurement should be tightly aligned in managing spending, validating savings (and other value creation), reducing risk, optimizing working capital, and managing an integrated Procure-to-Pay Process. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case, and the impact is non-trivial. But, the problems ARE fixable.

In this on-demand webinar, Pierre Mitchell shares the results of our research study that focused on optimizing this Procurement-Finance relationship, including:

  • Identifying the biggest barriers that Finance places on Procurement
  • Assessing and quantifying the organizational & financial impact of such barriers
  • Optimizing your approaches to knocking down these barriers
  • Examples and hard dollar benefits of implementing these approaches in a variety of areas

Aligning procurement and finance is totally doable — learn how to get your teams in sync and watch now.
