There’s an awful lot of fear, uncertainty and doubt (AKA: FUD) in the market right now around conflict minerals compliance and technology. And specialty tool and content providers, which have little understanding or capability in the broader supplier management area, are preying on the lack of customer/prospect understanding about the easiest and most cost effective ways to potentially drive compliance, using conflict minerals as a means to reveal greater visibility into supply chains.
Spend Matters and MetalMiner believe that the best way to achieve conflict minerals compliance is to use supplier management or spend analysis tools you probably already have – and to integrate a conflict minerals compliance approach into existing spend and vendor master data and workflows. Next week’s webinar, Conflict Minerals Technology: Compliance Through Spend Analysis and Existing Tools, taking place on Tuesday, July 9, 2013, from 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CDT, will explore exactly how to do this.
The dynamic duo of Spend Matters’ Jason Busch and MetalMiner’s Lisa Reisman will lead a discussion, beginning with Lisa exploring the current conflict minerals environment and recapping key findings from our Conflict Minerals EDGE event that took place earlier this year.
After this introduction, Jason will frame the conversation by exploring the role of technology in supplier management compliance and how to integrate a conflict minerals approach into a broader spend visibility or supplier management program. Then BravoSolution will provide a quick walkthrough example of how to leverage existing technology you likely already have to drive conflict minerals compliance and overall greater visibility into the supply chain in an integrated manner. And we’ll leave plenty of time for Q&A at the end.
You must register ahead of time for the webinar: Conflict Minerals Technology: Compliance Through Spend Analysis and Existing Tools. We hope to see you Tuesday after the long Fourth of July weekend!
