ON DEMAND WEBINAR | Procurement Operation Model: Moving into the Next Generation

What do operating systems and procurement have in common? If you think about it in a broader context, operating systems make something work. Similarly, eProcurement is a system that enables users to deliver and maximize value—it doesn’t actually do the work, but it gives you a platform to get things done.

In our JAGGAER InsideSpend Thought leadership Series, we spoke with Alpar Kamber, EVP of Denali, a WNS company, who shared insights on how to leverage the procurement operating model to generate the greatest value for the department and the company as a whole. Should you integrate all your procurement functions for a more seamless operation? Which industries are ahead of the eProcurement curve and why? What are the things you can start doing right now to get your eProcurement system to start creating more value? Alpar answers these questions and more.

Case Study:  Italy | McDonald’s

Following McDonald’s “global” strategy, more than 70% of the brand’s agro-food supplies are sourced locally. They needed to optimise their procurement process and make the move to managing the entire relationship online – from selection to negotiation.

The consumer goods market is a crowded place. While your product might be amazing, if you’re not innovating to optimize resources and processes to improve time-to-market, your new product or menu item may never reach the attention of consumers.
