December Webinars

The Buck Starts Here: Building a Winning Business Case to Transform P2P
Presented by: Zycus
December 6

This webinar will focus on best practices for creating and executing a business case for a Procure-to-Pay (P2P) transformation.

Utilizing a case study that highlights the “flight plan” of Curtiss-Wright, a manufacturer that traces its origins back to the Wright Brothers, webinar attendees will learn how the company transformed its P2P process to arrive at a more strategic destination after discovering imbalanced resource allocation that led to procurement resources spending 80 percent of their time on just 5 percent of the total spend.  

The Services Spend Management Challenge
Presented by: Coupa
December 11

Looking to control and optimize your services spend more effectively? Join this webinar with Coupa for a deep dive into a comprehensive solution that includes advanced services and contingent workers.

You’ll learn how the right technology can streamline your services procurement process and see firsthand how the right solution can enable you to drive more adoption, accelerate your time to value and reduce costs.

Future of Sourcing is Looking for Writers in 2019

Earlier this year, Outsource Magazine underwent a transformation to become Future of Sourcing to better represent the thought leaders in the global sourcing community. Throughout the year we added impressive new writers who have greatly expanded Future of Sourcing’s digital content in IT, cybersecurity, third party risk and more.

In 2019, we’re looking to continue to drive the conversation in the sourcing community on the problems and solutions that are impacting and transforming your business. Future of Sourcing is looking for writers to contribute original content for the opinion-formers and decision-makers at the heart of the global sourcing community.
