More than ever, procurement teams are tasked with doing more with less. Particularly in indirect spend, resources devoted to category management have continued to decline while managed spend and savings goals continue to grow. In this recording, Andy Matyas, Managing Director, CoVest Sourcing Network, will discuss the category management process of a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO) and how partnering with a GPO can augment an organization’s indirect procurement strategy. Learn how partnering with a GPO that applies leverage, resources, and analytics can multiply the category management resources at your disposal, and drive savings, without adding cost.
