A Deeper Look at the Myths About Supplier Self-Service Tools

Purchase-to-pay (P2P) organizations spend a significant amount of time setting up suppliers, fielding basic status inquiries, and completing other routines, non-value added tasks.

Concerns around online security, the cost of legacy system upgrades, global requirements and ultimately making a business case to invest in supplier self-service solutions has stifled adoption.
