Purchase requests solved

ISG Governance Services conducted a proof of concept for the purchase request process, quickly establishing areas for improvement and conducting onsite training. We trained our offshore team to take over the processing of purchase requests and used data and analytics to provide insight and monthly reporting on cycle time, volume and requestors.
