2:00-2:45pm             Topic in Focus, One – The Business Network, Getting More out of Existing Investments.
Business leaders are under pressure to deliver more savings, more spend under management, more new business.  Eventually, we start running out of places to look for “more”.  This session focuses on how companies are leveraging their current business application investments and gaining a step-change in value across savings, operational efficiency, and revenue.

2:45-3:30pm               Topic in Focus, Two – Intelligent Invoice Management
Rules-based invoice management stops errors and disputes at the source and allows companies to define when, how, and what happens at each step in the invoice process. This session will discuss how to maximise the benefits of bringing more intelligence into the invoice process from presentment, to legal compliance, to matching and approval, to invoice and payment status   Hear from companies who are reaping the rewards of getting it right.

3:30-4:15pm               Topic in Focus, Three – Taking your Sourcing Investment to the Next Level
E-sourcing applications alone do not deliver the cost savings and efficiency gains required to meet your goals. To maximize results you also need to have access to up-to-date supply market information and category expertise, possess the skills to execute successful sourcing projects, manage supplier contracts, and ensure that best practices are in place for maintaining key supplier relationships and supplier performance This session explores how you can get the most value from your sourcing technology investment in the shortest possible time.
