There are lots of ways organizations lose money throughout the sourcing, procurement, and payment process. Some of these include maverick spend, off-contract or out-of-budget purchasing, and high processing costs due to manual, paper-based methods. Fortunately, many of these costs are avoidable and significant savings can be realized by deploying the proper tools, such as electronic sourcing, procurement, and payment software. However, just as things like maverick spend are difficult to gauge, it can be tricky to predict the savings you can drive through automation.
