The S2P Automation Playbook

Automated processes offer huge efficiency and engagement, but require a careful adoption strategy

In association with GEP

There’s a division between how sourcing should be and how it often works.

 

Decisions get made without the right justification; spend gets managed carelessly or not at all and monitoring and managing compliance is done on an ad-hoc basis. Of course, many have turned to automation to solve this mismatch of activities; in essence trading one series of manual activities for another, but, crucially, adopting activities where procurement can play the role of decision-maker and controller of an automated process, rather than the far less productive pastime of policing uncooperative stakeholders.

 

Anyone who’s been through the implementation process will tell you that while automation may not be a silver bullet, an approach which combines the transactional efficiency of the right software system with a stakeholder-aligned spend management strategy has the potential to redefine the limits of the function.
