"Amazon: a Gateway to Maverick Spend or a Portal to Best Prices?"
Thursday April 20, 2017 | 2:00 PM EDT
Is Amazon just a new and tempting gateway to more maverick spend? Or is it a convenient place to get better prices? Should you embrace it or try to keep it out of your campus? And what about the other e-commerce sites like Best Buy, Jet, and others?
There may be no single right answer, and we know many organizations are trying to figure out their best past forward.
In this first installment of a two-part series, we'll hear from Cory Harms Director of Procurement Services at Iowa State University, where they've prioritized working with strategic vendors over broadening access to various e-commerce sites.
Cory will be joined by Chris Webb, Senior Manager, Higher Education Business Development at CDW-G, and Anthony Rotoli, CEO of ESM for a spirited and informative discussion on this important subject.
