Solution Deep Dive - Managing Non-Contracted Spend with Business Networks: Tips on Addressing Spot Buys to Increase Efficiency, Visibility and Control

Presented by SAP/Ariba


Non-contracted spend can represent as much as 30% of a company’s indirect spend, yet procurement doesn’t have the time or tools to manage it efficiently and effectively. As a result, spot buys, those unexpected, one-off, and non-contract orders that often involve categories that buyers don’t tightly manage, can be challenging, inefficient, and costly.

The good news is that this type of tactical spend can now be managed using network-based automated solutions.
