Despite how much progress procurement technology has improved over the years, the fundamental approach to designing it hasn’t – until now. In this webinar, four speakers (representing the analyst, industry, functional, and technology perspectives) will address the shift in procurement technology design made possible by the rise of AI and blockchain. Key benefits include increased user adoption and improved big picture procurement effectiveness.

While marketed to CFOs rather than procurement, this webinar is a great opportunity for procurement to improve our understanding of the corporate ‘why?’ behind our spend management goals and objectives. Topics include increased visibility, better managed risk, and expanded competitive advantage. Sound familiar? I thought so too.

My interest in this event is twofold: 1. Corporate workforces are changing, and as procurement teams spend an increased percentage of our time managing services, we need to be up on the latest methods and best practices. 2. I’m a freelancer, and let me tell you – I’m keenly aware of the challenges large companies face when trying to leverage my unique and valuable capabilities. Andrew Karpie will share his thoughts on how freelance management systems can make things easier in a dynamic workforce environment.
