Did you know that a typical Global 2000 enterprise spends more than one billion dollars on outsourced services? Getting this spend under management is a substantial untapped opportunity. 

As enterprises increasingly rely on third party services to drive their core competencies, leverage external expertise, and lower operational costs – they are running into a new set of challenges. Multitudes of de-centralized buying centers contracting discrete services means increased costs, diluted control and non-compliance with corporate policies and tax and labor laws. Despite the unique challenges of managing indirect services spend, the possibilities for corporate value are significant. World class organizations like Motorola understand this and are realizing dramatic benefits through strategic management of complex services categories. 

Join the April 26th webinar hosted by Emptoris to: 

- Hear from Jeff Abrahamson, Sr. Manager, Indirect eProcurement Solutions & Operations, Motorola, to learn how Motorola realized significant savings by bringing their services spend under management

- Learn about best practices on tackling complex services categories from Peter Smith, Editor and co-MD of Spend Matters UK / Europe

- Understand the requirements around implementing a successful services procurement program and making it operational from Emptoris’ Jim Holbel
