There are many paths to Procure-to-Pay (P2P) excellence and many starting
points. A P2P automation project may start with a focus in one area within
either accounts payable or procurement or it may pursue a “big bang” strategy;
no matter the initial project approach or budget, one unifying characteristic of
Best-in-Class P2P organizations is the holistic, long-term view of P2P that they
take from the start.
This webinar will show enterprises how to build a
strong foundation for P2P success and show examples of P2P success in a variety
of industries. All registrants will receive a copy of the new Ardent Partners’
report, “Procure-to-Pay: Best-in-Class Blueprint” upon completion of the
Live Webcast Event:
