ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Future of Profit-Driven Procurement & Payments is an invitation-only event that will bring together 25 senior finance and procurement leaders from organizations in the Silicon Valley area who will convene with three simple goals in mind:
  • Learn from like-minded individuals
  • Network with other senior procurement and finance leaders
  • Enjoy a fine lunch
The format will feature an industry panel of senior leaders for an interactive discussion followed by small roundtable discussions to maximize peer to peer learning and networking.
ABOUT THE CONTENT
The rise of technology in finance and procurement is enabling organizations to more effectively drive margins and mitigate spend risk through automation. To most efficiently purchase and pay for goods and services, finance and procurement leaders are moving toward utilizing centralized data systems with machine learning to maximize enterprise spend control.

We will focus on sharing best practices and lessons learned on these topics:

  • Current state of purchasing and payment technology
  • How SaaS solutions are impacting buying and paying behavior
  • Optimizing cost and profit through AP automation
  • Visualizing your spend through advanced analytics
  • What do you do today to take advantage of AI in the future?
