Procurement Technology Developments

Separating the Hype from the Reality

webinar description

These days we’re surrounded by messages about “new technology” and “cutting-edge technology” and “revolutionary technology” — all declaring that better productivity and performance are just a few clicks away. How can procurement professionals separate hype from reality, and determine which new developments will really help them achieve better results? Regardless of where you are on your procurement tech journey, you need to understand what the market is offering; the best resources to invest in for your digital future; and what you’re actually building your budget case around for the next three years.

In this webinar, Spend Matters’ Jenny Draper will be interviewing GEP’s technology expert, Paul Blake, about the different solutions and digital resources that have been, and will soon be, impacting the procurement industry. The two of them will uncover the trends that will be transforming the digital procurement and supply chain markets of tomorrow, including blockchain, AI and RPA technologies.

The program includes live Q&A for the audience.

Reasons to attend the webinar
  • The most significant trends in procurement technology development, especially in S2P.

  • The practical applications of technology like blockchain in procurement.

  • The emerging tech that will help you mitigate your supply chain and CSR risks.

  • How to budget in terms of suite, module and implementation.
