Aligning people and processes to drive results — right to the bottom line.
What the webinar covers:

In theory, Finance and Procurement should be tightly aligned in managing spending, validating savings (and other value creation), reducing risk, optimizing working capital, and managing an integrated Procure-to-Pay Process.

Aligning procurement and finance is totally doable — learn how to get your teams in sync and watch now.
What you will learn:
- Identifying the biggest barriers that Finance places on Procurement
- Assessing and quantifying the organizational & financial impact of such barriers
- Optimizing your approaches to knocking down these barriers
