Procurement Highlights: best of Spend Matters from the US of A

I'm delighted to introduce Sheena Moore, who works for Spend Matters in the USA.   Sheena and I will be putting together a weekly post highlighting some of the most interesting pieces that have appeared on the US Spend Matters site during the week.  We hope you enjoy them!  (Peter Smith)

Across the Pond: Spend Matters US Weekly Round Up

Jason went to the Nordics (and ate reindeer, but that’s another story). Read about his meetings with Hubwoo and Trade Extensions to hear about some great innovation in European P2P and sourcing/optimization.

Late last Friday, Chicago received a global bomb threat. Supply Risk is alive and well, in forms that can’t always be anticipated. Jason provides some tips and strategies for keeping your supply chain safe.

Sherry Gordon writes a very well read guest post. Supplier Relationship Management: Does it really deliver? Read her analysis of the results of a survey asking firms how they’re using SRM ... and how they’re not. (Note from Peter - we also covered that survey here).

SAP seems to be a bit behind on things? “SAP has made a number of enhancements, including a UI update, simplified navigation and a range of functional updates that are helping to bring a platform whose legacy stretches back over ten years into the next sourcing decade. But how competitive is the solution in the market today?”

If you happen to be traveling to Chicago any time soon... Two Events Head For the Windy City: Forrester and Procurement Leaders.

With that, happy Friday all.
