By Guest Contributor

September 12, 2011 at 11:37 AM

Listen to a recording of this webcast.  Procurement & finance are two business functions which are often at loggerheads with each other.  One reason for this is the lack of perception alignment on an important metric of procurement and finance performance - ‘savings’. This webinar will discuss how technology can help track savings at different stages in a transparent manner increasing compliance and accountability, providing a common ground to both the functions for collaboration.

Learning objectives:

  • Grey areas and reasons for procurement-finance standoff
  • How procurement can demonstrate the savings it generates in the language of finance
  • How technology can help attain goals by closing the communication gap between procurement and finance
