Thursday, November 10 | 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET

Vice President of BPS Megan Weis and Senior Analyst Vatsal Gupta will be co-presenters at a November 10 webinar titled Procurement Analytics 3.0 – Leveraging Technology for Greater Business Outcomes. Paul Blake, Senior Manager of Product Marketing at GEP will also be a lead presenter during the webinar.

To thrive in today’s complex world, buyers of global outsourcing services are looking to their providers for next-generation models which not only lower cost, but leverage new tools and technologies to drive better business outcomes. In procurement, this next-generation model is squarely focused on analytics.

For many enterprises, procurement analytics begins – and ends – with spend analysis. Best-in-class procurement teams, however, are leveraging innovative analytics techniques and technology – in new areas – to drive greater value across their source-to-pay (S2P) processes. How can your procurement team do the same? In this session, experts from Everest Group and GEP will discuss how procurement organizations can apply next-gen analytics tools across S2P processes to improve their team’s overall reach and impact on the enterprise. They will also share key levers and best practices to help you successfully operationalize advanced procurement analytics.
