    Everyone can agree that technology provides significant benefits to procurement teams in the form of operational efficiency and better spend visibility. That’s the easy part! The hard part is doing something about it: making sense of the many options in the procurement technology market, prioritizing your teams’ needs to make a selection, and building the business case for funding.  This webinar is dedicated to helping you answer the ‘what,’ ‘why,’ and ‘how’ of modernizing your procurement function. With industry insight, grounded by real examples from public procurement teams, we’ll provide a practical step-by-step guide to identifying the best procurement technology for your team and making a plan for how to get it.  



     After completing this online training session, learners will be able to:
    1. Perform a current state assessment and prioritize your technology needs
    2. Understand what's out there and navigate the procurement tech buying process
    3. Construct a business case aligned with organizational objectives
