eProcurement: The Backbone of Digital Government

On Tuesday October 13 Public Spend Forum will be joined by Jarrod McAdoo, Senior Manager Product Marketing at Ivalua, and our own Jason Busch, founder of Spend Matters and parent company Azul Partners. They will discuss the critical role eProcurement plays in enabling a digital government, from increasing transparency, value for money, communication, and innovation to ensuring continuity and driving value. The webinar takes place 2:00pm to 3:00pm EDT, rather late for our European audience but worth registering so you can listen on-demand after the event. Register here.
