Tuesday January 17th at 1pm ET

We all know a stellar procurement process can help your organization with control on spend, mitigating risk, cost saving, and more. 


However, no matter how wonderful your process is if you don’t have total employee adoption you won’t see the full benefits you anticipated. 


Hear how Joyce Liu, a top consumer designer and Gabe Novais, head of product at Zip, tackled the B2B procurement challenge of employee adoption with a consumer design and user experience lens. With a goal to allow procurement leaders to toss out their 73 page employee purchasing manual with a no-training-required platform. 


In this session you will learn about: 

  • The impact a seamless purchasing user-experience will have on your business
  • How to increase employee/requestor adoption of your procurement process
  • A look into how Zip has tackled this problem
