Keeping Track of Your Critical Vendor Contract Milestones

Finance & Accounting

Across industries, 60 percent of supplier contracts automatically renew without agreement of the buyer.  Within banking, automatic renewal of a high value critical vendor contract can result in additional expenses of $500,000 or more depending on contract language, market pricing and the resulting decrease in negotiating leverage.  In this webinar, information on best practices in vendor contract management, impacts from poor vendor management practices and options for automating critical vendor management functions will be provided. At the end of this session, each participant will have actionable options for addressing these issues in their financial institution.
