CAPS News - June 2019

If you're not already on our newsletter mailing list, sign up now!

The CAPS team is so excited to announce that we've just launched our brand new CAPS Library! It includes enhanced searching and sorting, the ability to "favorite" reports, and a much more intuitive experience. Plus, it's nice to look at. This is just the beginning - we'll continue to improve upon the CAPS Library and add features you've requested and some that you haven't, in a way we simply weren't able to in our legacy Knowledge Central.

Please note: even if you have an account, you'll need to create a new one - but we promise, it's simple and completely worth it! Anyone can create a free account, so please check it out now.


Quick fact: KPIs that CPOs report to senior executives 

It’s no surprise that the top three KPIs that CPOs (or equivalent senior procurement/supply management executives) report to their bosses are: Savings (92% of CPOs), Spend (67%), and Risk Mitigation (63%)

Other less common KPIs, and the percent of CPOs that report them upward, include:

     46%      Contribution to Increased Margins
     46%      Innovation
     42%      Contribution to Revenue
     29%      Supplier Diversity
     25%      Value at Risk
     21%      Return on Investment
     13%      Total Cost of Ownership

NEW RESEARCH: Emerging Technologies in Supply Management

New transformative and potentially disruptive technologies promise large companies faster, cheaper, and more effective procurement and supply management processes. We identified 11 key emerging technologies and analyzed their potential benefits, effectiveness, and opportunities for practical application. 

In light of a growing number of options, this research will inform supply management organizations on how to avoid the risk of either adopting unnecessary technologies or becoming comparatively less effective with actionable recommendations on whether, when, and how to implement new solutions.

Watch the preview video now and learn more about all our recent CAPS research reports.
