Spend Matters is hosting a public webinar this afternoon (1 to 2 pm CDT) featuring George Zullo, Director, Sourcing & Procurement Continuous Improvement at NBTY. Owned by the Carlyle Group, NBTY is a $3 billion retailer and nutrition provider whose name does not roll off the tongue, but their products are ubiquitous. You probably have one of their goodies sitting in your pantry right now. Think Balance Bars and Nature’s Bounty vitamins.
What’s interesting for our purposes (besides staying healthy with their products) is that NBTY has deployed Oracle’s EBS sourcing and spend analysis capabilities in a non-traditional but increasingly popular manner for Oracle shops: in the cloud on a SaaS platform. And in this case, hosted and run by Oracle partner, Enrich. This webinar will be particularly useful for Oracle procurement customers (or potential customers) looking to evaluate their options in comparison to third-party tools and traditional software deployment models.
The session will help Oracle customers assess whether or not a cloud/SaaS deployment strategy is the right answer for them. It will also cover:
- Provider evaluation criteria and expectations
- Project successes, results, and lessons
- Surprises – positive and negative
- Lessons learned and what to do differently
- Success metrics for deployment
Join us at 1 pm CDT and learn how George’s team identified $20 million in savings even before his IT department had rolled out Oracle Financials – among other procurement, IT, and systems victories. The webinar is open to the public and anyone can register to attend through this link.
