Summary

Forrester expects companies will spend more than $1 billion in 2013 on expanding, upgrading, or replacing their ePurchasing systems.

This report will describe the best practices for selecting and implementing ePurchasing solutions that we've identified from years of research. It will explain how to balance functionality and integration when picking products, how to tackle the adoption challenge head on, and how to plan for the new era of mobile approval and collaborative purchasing.
