To start this DPW Amsterdam 2022 live session with Stephany Lapierre, Founder + CEO of TealBook, and Tim Herrod, VP of Global Procurement at Albermarle Corp., Dr. Elouise Epstein asked the audience two important questions:
“How many of you think supplier data is important?” Seeing the audience raise their hands, she joked, “Yeah, everybody. I hope everyone thinks that.”
She continued “How many of you have good, clean supplier data, fully-vetted records, and enriched?” With silence from the audience, Dr. Epstein replied, “Yeah, nobody. That matches my experience.”
For the next thirty minutes, the three procurement powerhouses dove into the current state of the procurement industry landscape, tackling the issues bad data has caused and offering solutions that allow for better procurement function.
