Capturing operational value and redefining the procurement function

| The Ned, London

Financial Services Club, 11:30 p.m. - 4 a.m.

Procurement is one of the few business functions with a clear line of sight over how the macro environment and supplier base activity impacts directly on corporate profitability. As the adoption of procurement technology increases and procurement teams make the transition from transactional processing to strategic business function, they have the potential opportunity to redefine their service offering – from identifying and delivering cost savings to providing strategic input into wider business decisions including making large-scale investments, advising on product or geographical expansions, and even supporting turnarounds.

Join this evening’s roundtable and drinks reception to share your thoughts and experiences on procurement’s changing landscape. This event is also relevant to those who may not yet be investing in procurement technology but are outsourcing or offloading traditional procurement activities in a drive to become more strategic.
