Sales Director, Mercateo UK & Ireland

IT transformation alone is not sufficient to propel indirect procurement into Industry 4.0. It requires a collaborative mindset to deliver value beyond savings, such as innovation, business resilience and CSR. Digitising indirect supply chains presents a great opportunity for CPOs to create real change as they influence buying behaviours across the entire organisation. This session will explore the importance of content driving end-user adoption creating visibility of indirect spend and collaborative supplier networks in return.

Case Study: The power of process - Driving business success with digitalisation

Dawn Howarth
Dawn Howarth
Managing Associate, Oliver Wight

IT platforms are addressing the issue many companies face - fragmented ERP systems caused by acquisitions. With information now more readily available than ever before, businesses are eager to harness IT tools that can deliver key insights and boost customer satisfaction. But what many organisations fail to understand is that in order for the technology to work, you need to not only know what you want it to deliver but to design the tool according to your business processes. This session will explore how you can ensure you are procuring technology the right way to meet both your customers’ and business’s needs.
