Saving money, reducing risk, and optimizing working capital are not just functions of procurement – these are goals that should be shared across the organization. When companies emphasize the “Power of We” with eProcurement to rally everyone across the spend ecosystem towards these goals, employees actually change their spending behaviors. This shift makes everyone into spend stewards, creating a system that ultimately becomes self-managing.
This new collaborative state of WeProcurement:
We have found that savings can double when WeProcurement is behind the design and rollout of an eProcurement system. And, really saving money is just the beginning – it’s the new strategic options that become available because of those savings that are giving companies a competitive advantage. This is why everyone in the company who buys goods and services has a role to play.
As companies adopt a WeProcurement approach alongside a full purchase-to-pay solution, the overall company mindset moves from execution of tasks to more deliberate spending that frees up working capital to fuel a variety of company programs and growth. Spend behavior is altered across the organization because employees begin to truly understand how their efforts add value, contribute to the overall success of the organization, and propel everyone ahead.
