Complex Sourcing: How to Make the Impossible Easy, Save Money, and Get Promoted While Doing It

Complex, high-value sourcing events involve many elements with numerous suppliers of goods and services for review, plus multiple rounds of negotiation. The potential number of combinations of suppliers and goods/services often run into the millions!

So how do you make the most efficient, educated decision? Incorporating advanced mathematical optimization techniques can help evolve your complex sourcing process to become more streamlined and strategic.

Watch this SIG webinar recording featuring Ayush Sharma, Global Solutions Director at Coupa, to deep dive into how the right technology can transform your sourcing process from taking weeks, to taking hours. You’ll see firsthand how the right solution can enable you to:

  • Analyze price, and non-price, information to find the precise combination of suppliers and goods/services that meet your exact constraints and buying strategy
  • Bring greater consistency to your sourcing across your team by creating your own “whole project templates” or leveraging preconfigured templates
  • Ask unlimited “what if” questions during scenario analysis to challenge your assumptions and have your suppliers show you the possible


How CFOs Drive Growth and Reduce Risk Through Digital Transformation

To a greater extent than ever, finance leaders are having to navigate among conflicting priorities as they seek opportunities to achieve growth relative to their competitors while mitigating risks and controlling costs.

But by applying the latest advances in digital transformation, most notably in the areas of automation, cloud-based network architecture, and artificial intelligence, CFOs can align conflicting priorities by focusing on analysis rather than reporting. In so doing, CFOs not only gain visibility into their companies' current performance; they also enable their companies to recognize opportunities, as well as anticipate risks, sooner than their competitors.

During this Webcast, we will discuss:

  • How CFOs can break down silos to achieve visibility into their organizations' overall performance,
  • The CFO's role in enabling a company to apply the latest advances in digital transformation to identify, as well as respond to, opportunities and risks that competitors miss, and
  • How finance leaders can recognize and overcome obstacles to fulfilling their organizations' overarching performance goals.


Managing IT Business Spend: Thinking Strategically While Executing Tactically

The cost structures of most IT organizations are changing radically as they move operations into the cloud, cope with the proliferation of mobile devices, and double down on security safeguards. But too often the Business Spend Management (BSM) tools at the disposal of IT professionals are difficult to use, lack visibility into current budget, and end up being simply overlooked and unused.

Join CIO.com and Coupa for this webinar featuring Mark Settle, CIO of Okta and author of Truth from the Trenches: A Practical Guide to the Art of IT Management, as we discuss the importance of turning Business Spend Management (BSM) into a team sport for the entire IT organization and avoiding a maniacal focus on continuous cost cutting.

We will explore how IT leaders can realize:

  • Record user adoption rates—even up to 100%
  • Cloud software benefits including less infrastructure, built-in security, and scalability
  • Amplification of the value of existing ERP investments using open and certified integrations


Understanding Your Role in Your Company’s Overall Business Spend Management

While many of today’s back-office stakeholders want to help their organizations improve spend management, different departments often have siloed, segmented cultures that prevent them from identifying their role in this process. Instead of viewing spend management automation in a holistic, strategic manner, companies see back-office process automation software as piecemeal solutions to very tactical problems. For example, an Accounts Payable (AP) department might plug in an invoice management software to try to reduce high invoice volume without really considering the impact that the Procurement department’s purchasing methods have on their own process. On the other hand, when organizations take a holistic business spend management approach, they not only improve their own process issues, but their organization as a whole.

Join PayStream Advisors and Source-to-Settle automation provider, Coupa, to explore how different processes and departments contribute to the company’s overall financial health. This webinar is meant to encourage different stakeholders to look beyond their own slice of business spend management, and to show how technology can help internal teams collaborate to better contribute to their company’s bottom line.

Attendees will learn about:

  • Business spend management trends among organizations (including AP, procurement, and sourcing processes)
  • How to improve visibility and control for all spend types
  • How to expand your business spend management worldview
  • How to apply business spend management software to improve the bottom line
