Sometimes it seems like the C-suite is more of a door than a window when it comes to procurement’s aspirations. Advanced Purchasing Dynamics approached a broad cross section of CEOs and Presidents to gather their input on where procurement is either missing expectations or has an untapped opportunity to better align our efforts with their vision for the enterprise. Attend this webinar to hear what they learned from these interviews.
As GEP tells us in the event description for this webinar, automation is a “good thing” (their emphasis). Making that automation happen, however, requires a nuanced understanding of the relative value associated with repairing and automating procurement’s most repetitive tasks. In this webinar, GEP will explore how to approach procurement automation, the opportunities and that procurement software can provide, and challenge the idea that technology is an answer to your procurement problems in and of itself.
Converting supply chain risk management from a theory to an executable strategy requires a clear vision and a plan for being able to measure – measure – the ROI of the time and investments made in the program. In this webinar, the riskmethods team will discuss how to achieve transparency along the entire supply chain, how to automate data capture and receive early warnings, how to mitigate risk and assess impact, and how to reach a 12 month ROI.
And now for a fun one… Even professionals working within the field of procurement have to be able to appreciate that sometimes we sound to others like we are speaking a foreign language. In this webinar, Proactis will demystify some of the most confusing terminology used in spend control and eProcurement. Everyone who attends the webinar will also receive a copy of their Jargon Buster Glossary afterwards.
