Shift Forward: The key to an agile supply chain is in the network

This is the fourth in a series of webinars that highlights the emerging trends and practices to prepare for a new world where organizations are leveraging digital to recover quickly and prepare for the future.

Taking your supply chain digital isn’t just about doing the work faster. It’s also about building a better way to process across procure-to-pay functions in order to gain more insight to become strategic and agile. And right now is your opportunity to accelerate digital processes.  Doing so enables more visibility, collaboration, automation, and straight-through processing to increase managed spend and touchless processes for all your spend categories while getting suppliers paid in days.

This is the fourth in a series of webinars that highlights the emerging trends and practices to prepare for a new world where organizations are leveraging digital to recover quickly and prepare for the future. In this session, we will capitalize on digital processes to network all internal and external supply chain stakeholders so that upstream and downstream processes not only run fast, but also are more agile, automated, collaborative, and aligned on shared objectives.

Watch the webinar to learn more about the following:

  • How a networked approach to procure-to-pay (P2P)  helps automate straight-through processes that will get all spend under management and pay sellers in days
  • How a network aligns all stakeholders across physical and financial supply chains for better efficiency and results
  • Why B2B Marketplaces are at the forefront of the network approach to deliver accurate, enriched data to drive touchless AP
  • How a digital foundation leads to better customer success
