Modernizing your Procurement Processes: Strategies to Turbocharge Efficiency and Maximize Spend Control in the “Turbulent 20s”
Tuesday February 21st at 1pm ET
The modern world has changed the game of what procurement is and what the function needs to do to deliver for their businesses.
Between an erratic economic environment, a bruising labor market and the slew of new rules and regulations to keep up with, procurement is finding itself in the hot seat for numerous modern business priorities. To keep up with the demands of the “turbulent 20s,” procurement needs to be modern, too.
Join this webinar with Nick Heinzmann, Head of Research at Zip, to learn key strategies on how to rapidly modernize your procurement processes so you can gain the time needed to tackle these evolving priorities while maximizing control and value from your spend. Topics covered will include:
- How to align procurement with “modern” business priorities effectively
- How to enable increased self-service and automation to enable your team to “do more with less”
- What data and analytics you need to identify (highest impact) efficiency and cost-saving opportunities
- Why intake management is the critical modern procurement process for broadening stakeholder influence and controlling B2B spend collaboratively
As Head of Research, Nick works with customers and industry influencers to power Zip’s thought leadership, product and competitive strategies. His research interests include human-machine interaction as it relates to value realization in B2B software; the ways emerging technologies are used to shape and influence business relationships; and process design and optimization, especially for procurement.
