Finding Spend Visibility and Savings Opportunities in an Unlikely Place: ICs, Freelancers and FMS Andrew Karpie - September 3, 2015 10:10 AM | Categories: Research Download, Services and Indirect Spend, Services Procurement & Contingent Labor, Services Procurement & Contingent Labor Management | Tags: Process & Best Practice, Research New opportunities for spend visibility, analysis and savings are emerging in an unlikely place: the fast-growing category of the independent workforce.
