Date: Fri, Aug 02, 2013

Duration: 1 hour
Finance departments work diligently to understand their organizations' financials and develop improvement tactics to help sustain and grow their companies. They frequently cooperate with accounts payable, among other departments, to report where money is spent. While these reports most likely include the amount of funds and in which category they were spent, this data doesn't provide important metrics that reveal spending patterns and possible savings solutions.
This Webcast will review how an in-depth spend analysis can help provide insight into how organization monies are spent, including goods and services, taxes, late fees, surcharges, and more.
By attending this Webcast, you will:
- Understand the basic steps and principles of an organization-wide spend analysis;
- Discover who the important stakeholders are during the process;
Determine the appropriate timeline and frequency of a spend analysis and when during the fiscal year one should be conducted;
- Review a sample spend analysis and how it was conducted; and
- Learn how to interpret a spend analysis and define appropriate goals for improving financial health.
This Webcast does not currently offer the opportunity to earn continuing professional education (CPE) credit. We invite you to stay tuned to CFO.com for future Webcasts that will offer attendees opportunities to earn CPE credit.
