JAGGAER and B&H Photo Address Building the Ultimate Customer-Centric Enterprise Buyer/Supplier Relationship

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, September 11, 2018 Uzi Adi, B2B eProcurement and Contracts
and Tiffani Barton, Assistant Manager B2B eProcurement & Contracts, of B&H Photo Video, explore best practices for managing the rapidly changing expectations of the buyer/supplier relationship on the October 9th, 11 AM EST JAGGAER InsideSpend webinar and podcast series. This webinar is designed to provide actionable intelligence and insights for Chief Procurement Officers, VP’s, and Directors and Managers of procurement locally and globally.

B&H Photo/Video is one of the world’s largest suppliers of creative equipment, with over 750,000 items in stock; they are also a member of JAGGAER’s Platinum Supplier Program, providing goods to hundreds of JAGGAER customers. Collectively B&H, and JAGGAER’s Jesse White, Vice President of Product Management, will discuss what is working in the buyer/supplier relationship, what buyers have come to expect from online shopping, and how B&H and JAGGAER are working together to deliver a next level experience that has helped many joint customers extract new value, make better buying decisions and control rogue spend.

The variables surrounding supplier assessment have grown from price and delivery time to a demand for insights, data and guidance, to make the right decisions on products in an increasingly complex and dynamic marketplace. JAGGAER provides the technology backbone that closes the loop on the experience, bringing machine learning and automated buying to the purchasing patterns established during the buyer and supplier interaction.

“The key to success, and maximizing value for customers, lies in spending time to get to know their issues. Customer expectations for immediate knowledge and content are rapidly rising. Meeting these needs forms the basis for a trust and knowledge based relationship that is powered by the technology platform,” says Barton.

“Advanced technology bridges the gap between the supplier and the buyer, and the demand for increased visibility and control of spend have raised the bar, in alignment with the enhanced buyer/supplier relationship. We have collectively built a forward looking framework to power the next generation of sourcing and spend management, while de-commoditizing the perception of and relationship with the supplier,” says White.

During this webinar, viewers will learn:

Examples of building a relationship with a buyer, and an exploration of the benefits.

Examples of supplier success.

Understanding and effectively curtailing rogue spend.

What to expect from a tailored buying experience.

Tuesday, October 9 at 11AM ET, 45 including a 10-15 minute Q&A.
