The Procurement Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for procurement leaders in the Philippines

Hosted by Coupa Software, The Procurement Leaders’ Virtual Roundtable offered an intimate online forum for procurement leaders from prominent firms in the Philippines. 

Our discussions are designed to be very inclusive and interactive, ensuring to leverage the wealth of experience from your senior peers.

Community Intelligence – Stronger Together

The year 2020 has marked the beginning of a new era in the world of business. In the midst of a global health crisis, organisations are brainstorming new approaches to manage things in a new way in today’s marketplace.

By leveraging anonymous, aggregate data across the community, decision-makers are finding answers to those questions relative to cost control, increased visibility, and digitalisation. This effort, known as Community Intelligence, has shone a light on those areas CPOs need to prioritise such as the digitalisation of procurement processes, mitigation of supplier risk and getting a seat at the executive decision-making table.

  • How has the pandemic changed the role of procurement within leading organisations in the Philippines and around the world?
  • Looking at 2021 and beyond, what areas will procurement need to prioritise?
  • What role will digitalisation play in the New World?
