How do we get the business to feed back quality data to the procurement organization?
Arla Foods have made a procurement transition to a set up with an end to end source to pay system, processes and PO compliance structure. This discussion will focus on the next steps. When category managers have centralized contract management, POs are being used at a good level and spend data is under acceptable control. Let’s discuss ways of helping the business become even more compliant. How to ensure data quality in the S2P environment. Better use of data beyond spend data and a higher level of transparency helping procurement develop the business further together with suppliers.
- How do you take compliance in the downstream P2P process to the next level (beyond PO toward feeding back quality data through orders)?
- What are your experiences in using your system set up to leverage transparency in the S2P process and quality data back to category managers?
