SAP Fieldglass Report: Procurement to Play Increasingly Important Role in Organizations


SINGAPORE, May 30, 2016 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

-- Services procurement and external workforce management leader to discuss

best practices at ProcureCon Asia 2016 conference

Procurement plays a critical role within organizations, and its importance will

continue to increase, according to a report underwritten in part by SAP

Fieldglass ( ), the global cloud technology leader

in services procurement and contingent workforce management. WBR Digital's

"Challenges in Asia-Pacific Procurement" report surveyed 100 senior procurement

executives from leading multinationals in the Asia-Pac region.

Overall, 24 percent of respondents said procurement already occupies a high

place on organizations' agendas, with the chief procurement officer having a

seat on the board, and 56 percent predicted procurement will progress toward

making board-level decisions over the next three years. Only a fifth of

respondents saw procurement's importance remaining secondary within


"Procurement has moved far beyond its former role as a transaction-based entity

to be more strategic," said Toni Jackson, director, SAP Fieldglass APAC. "The

fact that its influence continues to grow positions procurement well to drive

change at a fundamental level."

The report, co-sponsored by SAP Fieldglass, included a series of key findings

relating to organizations' initiatives to make procurement more efficient. They

include the following:

   -- Procurement's value within an organization is measured by managed spend

      as a percentage of total spend, followed closely by contract compliance.

   -- The biggest challenges respondents face relate to budgetary constraints,

      followed by time constraints and a lack of both resources and internal


   -- The most significant skills gap in current procurement teams was cited

      in contract management (52 percent), followed by contract selection and

      legal (51 percent) and risk analysis.

"There is technology in the marketplace that helps tackle the challenges the

respondents shared," Jackson said. "Vendor Management Systems (VMS) help manage

services procurement programs by simplifying many processes, including

sourcing, collaboration and contract negotiation, management and evaluation,

invoice approval and spend management. Our VMS customers realize cost savings

from 8 to 12 percent in the first year alone."

Jackson will speak at ProcureCon Asia 2016 on the topic of "How to Elevate Your

Service Procurement Practices." She will discuss ways to successfully manage

project-based services - to create consistent processes across categories, do a

better job of measuring quality and increase visibility.
