How Supplier Management Can Be Stealth, Supplier Audits On the Rise in Asia, Yay Olympics


First things first: we'd love for you to join us for a webinar next Thursday!

10 Ways Supplier Management is a Stealth Enabler for Procurement, A/P, and Risk Management
Thursday, February 13, 2014
1-2pm Central (too late in the day for you? Register anyway to gain access to the recording/slides!)

Let's face it. Supplier management technology alone is about as sexy as Borat in his mankini. Yet supplier management does not just stand alone. It's a massive enabler for a significant number of e-sourcing, transactional procurement, e-invoicing, dynamic discounting and risk management initiatives - not to mention the nexus of driving new levels of spend analytics and risk visibility across the supply chain. Join us as we explore ten ways that supplier management can be the critical stealth enabler, acting as a force multiplier on virtually all of your other procurement, accounts payable, treasury, and risk management initiatives.

Let's see, what else have we been up to...

Jason Busch interviewed Markus Ament, the Chief Product Officer at Taulia, on dynamic discounting, e-invoicing, ERP, and the long tail of the supply chain. (Part 2 is here).

Pierre Mitchell walks you through a bit of our e-sourcing coverage map.

You need to know about procurement information architecture, B2B connectivity, and Intel: Part 1 and Part 2. (If you'd like a free trial to access this PRO content, please let me know: smoore (at) spendmatters (dot) com.)

Trade Financing Matters is getting off the ground quickly! Here's a round-up of the first two weeks of posts, if you've missed them.

Supplier audits in Asia are on the rise. Is it strategic, or a CYA?

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be holed up watching the Olympics for the next two weeks. Cheers!
