KPMG general session: Enabling Digital Business Spend Management Transformation

Roughly 15 months ago Mastercard set out to transform the procurement function with the objective to provide a streamlined, guided buying experience for the business. In order to achieve this objective, however, they recognized they would need to evaluate the organizational structure, optimize the contracting process, streamline procure-to-pay, and enhance third party risk management. Similar to the simplicity and ease of use Mastercard cardholders expect globally, Procurement sought a platform that made it simple for internal users to buy products and services to propel the business forward. As Mastercard looks to their procurement future, Coupa represents a critical piece of the puzzle to resolve the age old question “How do we simplify purchasing?”.
