8:35 AM Panel: Pillars of Transformation: How Centralization, Innovation & Collaboration is Increasing Procurement Excellence --- Mastering Context

The role of procurement is entering a new era. Driven by a steady economy and rapid growth, companies are seeing a major business need to centralize procurement that brings about tighter controls, standardized processes and power to negotiate with vendors and achieve new efficiencies and savings. During this panel, attendees will hear from others who have moved from decentralized to centralized operations to manage supplier relationships, maintain contract compliance and keep costs down.
·         Standardize and centralize processes while driving global adoption with enhanced processes
·         Discuss a programmatic approach; design and build, drive execution, manage change
·         Reduce operational costs and drive productivity and process improvement
·         Enable category management focus on strategic instead of tactical activities
·         Enable integration between sourcing, tactical procurement and accounts payable
