Are you effectively managing your indirect spend? ERP systems rarely extend beyond P2P to assist in more complex sourcing activities. At the same time, most procurement teams lack the resources to effectively manage and control indirect spend - from evaluating and selecting suppliers, to full transparency and managing the entire life cycle. 

Because of this, indirect spend is one of the most significant opportunities for procurement leaders to improve their team’s performance and strategic impact. The right technology can add value, capacity, and visibility into the way you manage indirect spending. By giving your team the means to better collaborate, manage, and report on indirect spending, you have the power to better control costs, manage risk, and optimize ROI.
