With more than 42,400 employees worldwide spread over four continents, Texas Instruments (TI) sought greater visibility and control over its contingent workforce operations. In order to improve operational effectiveness and reduce costs, TI needed to streamline and track the interactions among hiring managers, facility managers, physical security, IT, services vendors and contingent workers. They chose the CascadeWorks™ Clarity services eprocurement solution to get greater visibility into information on contractor activity and spend, more effectively manage their vendor programs and relationships, and streamline the procurement cycle from requisition to payment.
