Most procurement teams are grappling with the challenges of ‘going digital’. The drivers for this are many, from the desire to streamline processes and drive efficiencies, to better serve end users, to capture better data, to drive greater compliance, to free up procurement time to work more strategically or simply to buy better.
ProcureTECH is the region’s only event specifically focussed on those technologies that enable and assist the procurement function.
The 2019 programme addresses the key challenges most procurement teams face when making the business case, selecting and implementing the right solutions for them.
As in the previous three years, ProcureTECH will run for just over one-and-a-half days, concluding shortly after lunchtime on day two. We felt in the last two years that this was sufficient time to conduct all of the supplier meetings and for buyers to attend those educational sessions that were most of interest to them.
ProcureTECH provides the best opportunity of the year to explore a wide range of procurement enabling solutions in one place – at one time. At the time of writing, it looks like we will have the largest line-up of technology solutions in the technology showcase, with everything from enterprise end-to-end solutions to more niche players who specialize in specific elements of the procurement process.
If you attend 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.
As was successfully implemented at ProcureTECH events in previous years, this event will adopt a ‘hosted buyer’ model, whereby buyer/procurement delegates can attend free of charge.
In order to qualify for the hosted buyer programme, procurement delegates must commit to conducting a minimum of four pre-scheduled meetings with participating technology suppliers.
These pre-scheduled meetings will be conducted while the main conference programme is in progress, meaning that hosted buyers must elect to opt out of two of the eight scheduled seminar sessions. They will still be able to attend all plenary sessions.
Any one organisation may only claim a maximum of two hosted buyer tickets.
Adoption of the right technologies has long been recognised as one of the three key pillars for building procurement capability. The others being ‘people’ and ‘process’. An argument is often made that increasingly technology and process are inseparable.
By attending ProcureTECH you will not only have the chance to explore what technologies are out there and what they can do for you, but also accelerate your understanding of the key issues involved in:
