WEBINAR – Take Sourcing to the Next Level with Procurement Orchestration, presented by ORO Labs

Sponsored by:

Faced with supply chain disruptions, uncertain geopolitics, and evolving ESG priorities, sourcing plays an increasingly vital role in determining a business’s profitability, resilience, agility, and brand perception.

With increased responsibility comes increased complexity. To manage this complexity, sourcing professionals have been assisted by lots of different tools to perform specialized tasks. However, every new tool for managing task complexity brings greater amounts of process complexity across tools and departments. Unfortunately, the solution for many organizations today is no solution at all: ad-hoc, manual activities coordinated via email and spreadsheets.

In this webinar, attendees will be introduced to the concept of procurement orchestration: the ability to automate the coordination of people, tasks, and systems to decrease cycle times, mitigate risk, and achieve complete visibility across processes, regardless of how many people or systems might be involved.

As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to

  • Define procurement orchestration and explain its value for strategic sourcing
  • Understand the role of procurement orchestration in their current procure tech stack
  • Identify best practices for getting started with procurement orchestration today
