[AOP Event] Augmenting P2P and ERP with Intake Orchestration and AI (Art of Procurement, Tonkean)

March 12, 11am ET

It is easy to point to the disappointing user experience associated with P2P and ERP solutions, but the reality is, those platforms were designed for procurement to use – not distributed buyers. Many procurement teams are turning to orchestration to fix this issue. Join Sagi Eliyahu, Co-Founder and CEO of Tonkean, and Jonathan Fehring, Principal, Procurement and Purchase-to-Pay Advisory of The Hackett Group, as they talk about what an intuitive procurement experience looks like to the business, and what it should feel like to users.
