In Manila: Indirect Procurement Forum


Tue Jan 14 2020, KMC | V Corporate Centre

For many companies in the Philippines, indirect/services procurement represents at least one-third of every purchasing dollar spent.  And yet, few companies have standardized procedures specifically designed for the complexities of services procurement. Often, the result is excessive costs, drawn-out purchasing cycle times, and inconsistent workflow procedures.

This unique forum is where you can find out how to cut costs and achieve organizational excellence from strategic sourcing to spend management initiatives, with proven strategies from your peers real-life lessons. Learn how leading-edge companies who are bringing a degree of professionalism to define and manage those categories eventually uncover a gold mine of potential savings.

Featuring all new speakers and case studies, best practices and the latest updates within the indirect procurement role, this forum is an event you cannot miss!
