Source to Pay – Latest Insight at Real World Procurement Event Next Week

We’re only a week away from our latest Real World Procurement event with BravoSolution. Join us for our lunchtime seminar on The Good, Bad and Ugly of S2P Implementation at the Smith and Wollensky restaurant on the 25 May 2016 from 11.00 – 14.30.  (S2P stands for "source to pay", which you knew of course). You can book here.

Procurement technology and processes are inextricably linked these days, and getting things right in terms of implementing successful solutions is vitally important for every procurement function. Guy Allen will be leading this session, with some input from me too, and we will look at purchase-to-pay and source-to-pay solutions in particular. We will identify the critical success factors for successful implementation and ongoing optimisation, with a particular focus on stakeholder management.

Based on real life experience, we will expand on five common errors that organisations tend to make with major systems projects – and give some suggestions for how they might be avoided, as well as exploring integrated systems versus “best of breed”. That is becoming a major question these days, and frankly even if you spend a lot of time researching, reading about and even looking at procurement systems (as we do at Spend Matters), this is a confusing area. A quick skim through a “magic quadrant “ will not guarantee you make the right decisions, that is clear!

The event is a real bargain at just £49 including a very good lunch - which also provides a great networking opportunity – meet and talk to your procurement colleagues and peers in a business-focused but enjoyable setting). And if you are a CIPS member, you get an amazing further 50% discount!
