2017 Connect ONCE Fall Summit

Aligning Finance with Procurement

Hotel Avenida Palace - Barcelona, Spain - October 11-13, 2017

Hosted by:

Exploring the Digital Supply Chain - Aligning Finance with Procurement

We hear and read a lot about the importance and benefits of integrating the digital supply chain. At the ConnectONCE 2017 Fall Summit we will be taking a deep dive into why and how finance and procurement must be aligned as part of a successful supply chain integration process.

“Organizations are typically structured around individual functions with their own objectives and operations. This is particularly the case for procurement and finance, which often coexist as separate entities with dysfunctional integration points despite playing key roles in the procure to pay (P2P) process.” Aligning Procurement and Finance to Drive Business Impact, point of view authored by Raj Bhattacharya, Vice President, Source to Pay, Genpact.

Join us in Barcelona to discuss how the leaders in B2B procurement and supply chain management are tackling dysfunctional business models and helping enterprises integrate the often fragmented Procure to Pay Value Chain. Come discuss and learn together the Best Practices that make it possible for enterprises to actually reap the potential cost reduction and improved process efficiency benefits of an integrated P2P system through aligning finance and procurement.

And, if you think you already have this handled and don’t need to hear what other B2B leaders have to say, then maybe you forgot the valuable lesson we learned at our 2016 Houston Summit - this is “No Country for Old Business.”

See you in Barcelona!
