Fixing The Broken Promise of Enterprise eProcurement (Live Demo)
For many years, enterprise eProcurement software has done the same things but promised different results. Companies are spending their resources trying (and failing) to enforce top down processes and bring more spend under management. The tools used today are about limitations. We think it’s time to change that and solve the unfulfilled promise of eProcurement by delivering a better tool for enterprise companies.
We believe enterprise eProcurement should enable:
- Accurate products and services from ALL your suppliers
- A collaborative and easy buying experience
- The freedom to buy anywhere
- Connected end-to-end processes
- A comprehensive solution for ALL your spend
Join The Hackett Group and the CEO of Tradeshift as they discuss:
- The current state of enterprise eProcurement and the challenges still faced by too many
- Why it’s time for a change
- What the future of enterprise eProcurement can and should look like
