View this on demand webinar where we partnered with EBG to discuss the relationship between Finance and Procurement.
Traditionally, in most organisations, the relationship between finance and procurement has been ad-hoc, and not strategic. Even though the two functions are closely linked together and have mutual goals of savings, control and visibility, oftentimes there is tension between the two departments due to historical differences in their duties and solutions that functioned independently. But all that is changing thanks to automation.
The webinar covers key topics, like:
Challenges of having a disjointed process. There are typically three areas where disjoint processes are common; spend control, compliance and supplier relationships
Trend toward cross-functional collaboration by use of automation and digitalisation
Steps to bringing finance and procurement closer together by means of platforms, processes and people.
