Control each spend category while coordinating spending across categories
Managing spending has never been more critical. Beyond improving compliance and reducing costs, procurement and supply chain leaders are asked to help fund innovation and core business growth. Orchestrate multi-tier supply chains while managing supplier risk and supply chain disruption. And engage a changing workforce while also protecting employees and the brand.
To succeed, you need to control each spend category while simultaneously coordinating spending and policy across categories. And with intelligent spend management solutions from SAP – SAP Ariba solutions, SAP Fieldglass solutions, and SAP S/4HANA Cloud – you can:
- Reimagine the buying experience: Enable a central place for procurement that provides end-to-end visibility and empowers employees with a simple, smart, and self-service-compliant purchasing experience
- Minimize spend risk: Offer sophisticated sourcing, contracting, and spend analysis processes for all types of spend, fully integrated into powerful and scalable execution and procurement processes
- Accelerate trading partner collaboration: Employ modern supplier management capabilities for supplier discovery, qualification, and segmentation, supplemented by the automation of the entire order-to-invoice process for touchless, intelligent document exchange with zero processing errors
