The American Express European Indirect Spend Management Study 2011

Presentation14.05.2012


In recent years, corporations have made inroads into direct spend, increasing purchase order compliancy, channelling more spend through fewer, preferred suppliers to leverage discounts, and improving end-to-end processes. However, an area still left relatively unchecked in many organisations is indirect spend. In this session, American Express will reveal the findings from their in-depth study, which they compiled in conjunction with A.T. Kearney and sharedserviceslink.com, so you can understand the challenges, trends and opportunities in indirect spend in 2011.
