Summary

When it comes to purchasing, every procurement team will tell you that one of the greatest challenges of their job is ensuring compliance across their organization when it comes to purchasing rules, spend policies, and budgets. Without the proper controls in place, organizations can lose hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in maverick spend and high processing costs.

High levels of rogue spend can be a sign of an unhealthy Spend Culture. It is often caused by a lack of internal controls and approval processes, non-compliant employees, and if organizations aren’t using the right systems and technological tools. Even with the proper eProcurement tool, the system is only as strong as its utilization, and some companies fear they won’t gain high enough adoption of a software to truly centralize and control spend activity.
