8 Week Webinar Series

Supplier data has been crippling investments for far too long. Millions of dollars have been poured into software solutions that promise efficiency, transparency and savings. But procurement teams are still struggling; there is still little to no confidence in the quality of supplier data and there is still no mechanism in place to improve it over time. Digitally transformed (and transforming) procurement teams seem to believe that software will cure fundamental data issues. However, software requires clean data to function properly. Using software as a mechanism to gather data has proven only to exacerbate issues. 

We’ve brought together some of the brightest minds in our industry to discuss the current supplier data crisis and how to lead the digital transformation with data first. Learn how to make your investment more effective while positioning your team to succeed.
