A study of more than 500 CFOs and senior finance executives conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and commissioned by Coupa, reveals that more than 60 percent of CFOs lack complete visibility into the transactions within their organization. Sound familiar?
Read the report to learn how CFOs are responding in a rapidly evolving world where new technologies, uncertainty, and emerging threats abound. The report also includes five qualitative interviews with the CFOs from Ally Financial, Driftwood Acquisitions and Development, Hays, Micron Technologies, and Zendesk.
The challenges addressed in the EIU Report, “The Strategic CFO in a Rapidly Changing World,” are at the heart of modern Business Spend Management (BSM). Providing CFOs a single point of control for managing business policies and processes for all spend – whether it’s a pre-approved requisition against a contract, a post-approved business expense report, or an un-approved non-backed invoice – BSM offers finance leaders an easy way to gain control of all of their spend.
