In 2011, Starwood Hotels & Resorts had its own in-house procure-to-pay system that was fully integrated for all of its U.S. properties. It was a system they owned, they ran, and for which they wrote the code internally. When Tad Wampfler came on board as Chief Supply Chain Officer that year, he set his sights a bit broader. “My goal as CSCO, seeing that we’re growing rapidly, was to ask: how do we best run a global supply chain?” says Wampfler. After surveying their non-U.S. locations, it was clear that they lacked any truly global data. That was a big impediment when looking to build an integrated global supply chain.
