About this talk

The ultimate goal of digital procurement transformation today is not just savings and process optimization. Increasingly, mid-market procurement organizations are looking to shift from a reactive internal customer service function to a strategic function that brings innovation and competitive advantages to the business. Recent developments in P2P technology have made this a realistic opportunity. However, many mid-market organisations have still not embarked on the journey to digital procurement. Join us for an insightful conversation about the mid-market sector, the major challenges its procurement organisations are facing, and how innovative leaders, such as Newsquest, are overcoming these challenges and building their road to digital procurement excellence. Our special guest, Jason Baldaro, Group Purchasing Manager at Newsquest, shares practical insights on how they upgraded their procurement function with a fully operational end-to-end P2P solution, while overcoming some of their most outstanding challenges, like: - Lack of visibility and control over spend - High costs - Financial non-compliance - Inefficient financial processes
