A vision for your digital procurement strategy

The procurement vision realized with Deloitte and Coupa

  • With Deloitte’s process-centric approach and on-site delivery model, a global pharmaceutical company increased user adoption by 40% and reduced purchase order and invoice cycle time by 50%.
  •  Deloitte helped a global banking giant replace their existing S2P processes with Coupa’s Sourcing, Contract Lifecycle Management, Procure-to-Pay, and Supplier Information Management modules. The initial go-live included more than 7,000 users and 5,000 suppliers, covered about $6 billion in spend, and allowed the bank to report on financial and regulatory obligations more effectively.
  • An industrial equipment manufacturer with operations in more than 40 countries and $3 billion in facility-managed spend turned to Deloitte for process-driven design and procurement transformation services, allowing the company to capture $100 million in savings in 24 months.
  • A global leader in medical technology working in 60 countries engaged Deloitte for end-to-end process transformation and a touchless solution for invoice processing, resulting in $80 million in cost reduction over three years.

2021 Procurement Outlook

The COVID-19 pandemic impacted all industries and business functions—yet, not all enterprises are at the same point in transforming their procurement operations, and some are faring better than others. Deloitte’s 2020 CPO Flash Survey found that 80 percent of CPOs believe the period of rapid response has passed or will soon end, with about 20 percent of respondents entering the “thrive” stage of response.

How did these organizations recover so quickly? To help answer that question, our procurement leaders identified the four key areas that will drive procurement priorities and strategies in 2021 and beyond.

Preparing oil and gas companies for the future

How can oil and gas companies respond, recover, and thrive after the Covid-19 pandemic? It’s important to understand various industry trends that are reshaping the market. The pandemic has caused extreme swings in demand and many companies have been forced to curtail their productions to maximize profit. This uncertain future calls for business agility, now more than ever. Deloitte and Coupa are helping O&G companies remain agile during these uncertain times, empowering them to drive savings, gain visibility into project costs, and enable supplier network collaboration.

How CFOs can take the lead on third-party risk management and governance

With today’s boards of directors and CEOs becoming increasingly concerned about risk management, their CFOs are being asked to step up to the plate and become more strategic on combating the issue. As a result, many CFOs with a high degree of digital maturity and data visibility are getting better outcomes, both with risk management and overall company performance.

During a recent CFO webcast sponsored by Deloitte and Coupa, leaders discussed how CFOs have already become more forward-looking and strategic, with the driver behind the change being risk management. CFOs are turning to technology, including cloud-based platforms, robotic process automation and visualization techniques, and working closer with their Chief Compliance Officer, to get a handle on risk issues.
