The Spend Management Virtual Roundtable

An exclusive online discussion for finance and procurement leaders from mid-sized organisations across the DACH region

Hosted by Coupa Software, The Spend Management Virtual Roundtable was set up to offer an intimate online forum for finance and procurement leaders from mid-sized organisations across the DACH region, in which we discussed the evolution of business spend management within the finance and procurement sector.

The session lasted one hour and was conducted in German. The discussion was professionally moderated and encouraged participation from the other attendees. Our discussions are designed to be very inclusive and interactive, ensuring to leverage the wealth of experience from your senior peers.

Breaking down silos: how to optimise financial health across spend, payments, and liquidity

Cash is the lifeblood of any business, but it is hard to control what can’t be seen. The current economic unpredictability brought into stark context by a suddenly dispersed workforce calls for improved visibility, efficiency, and control across the core working-capital functional teams of finance, procurement and treasury. 

Now is the time for finance to take a leadership role in guiding their businesses to optimise spend, payments and liquidity to ensure profitability, strategic value and growth.

  • What are the blind spots and process inefficiencies currently experienced by finance departments? Could a single source of truth and automated processes help?
  • How can finance leaders gain better insights into future cash demands to improve forecasting and unlock cash flow?
  • What are the best ways to reduce the risks of error and fraud?
