ProcureTECH is the only event in the region dedicated purely to those technology solutions that enable greater procurement capability. Many people will be aware of the traditional 3 Pillars of procurement Capability – People, Process and Technology, but increasingly the divide between technology and process is reducing. Processes can and are being automated, driving greater efficiency and productivity, better visibility and compliance, enabling better, data-based decision making, reducing timeframes and freeing up valuable resources to engage in more strategic, value-adding activities.
Given the evident benefits one would have thought that procurement teams would be adopting technology wherever possible, yet anecdotal feedback tells us that the uptake is still relatively slow.
The programme for ProcureTECH 2016 addresses all of these issues directly, with the aim of equipping those charged with making these decisions with the necessary knowledge to get it right. The programme is unashamedly practical, delivering expert advice and opinion from a faculty of speakers who have real world experience in building capability through successful technology programmes.
ProcureTECH provides the best opportunity of the year to explore a wide range of procurement enabling solutions in one place – at one time. Attending as a hosted buyer, you can use our online meetings scheduling system to pre-schedule 20 minute appointments with those vendors you are most interested in meeting with. There is also plenty of time built in to the programme to enable more informal viewing of the solutions being showcased.
