Hosted by Coupa and Clearsulting, hear from guest speaker, Chris Stang, VP of Treasury and Finance Operations at Howard Hughes, and Gary Warder, a director at Clearsulting focused on source-to-pay, as they discuss the importance of building a strong foundation for procure-to-pay (P2P) to gain visibility of spend and maximize spend under management.
Howard Hughes, who owns, manages, and develops real estate throughout the U.S., has experienced rapid growth—both organic and inorganic—over the last few years. With decentralized, non-standard P2P processes, their procurement and finance teams struggled to keep up with the demands of the business.

- Leveraged Coupa to leapfrog to a leading practice P2P technology and drive the underpinning process transformation
- Improved supplier experience
- Transitioned towards increased PO-backed purchasing
- Increased first-time match rates
You’ll also hear how they’re applying leading practices across the procurement function and building a roadmap for future automation and innovation.
