When it comes to procurement technology, most executives would agree that there are more questions than there are answers. Enterprises have explored several combinations over the years but the perfect procurement tech stack remains as elusive as ever.

ERPs and Procure-to-Pay suites promised an all-encompassing solution by converging all procurement disciplines – sourcing, contract management, supplier management, payments, etc. – on a single platform. Unfortunately, on the other side of these multi-million dollar implementations, enterprises find a partial and rigid solution.

Amidst these challenges, a new generation of procurement platforms is redefining this space. Join us for this webinar organized by IACCM and SirionLabs featuring experts from AT Kearney and Forbes as they discuss the rise of a new transformative technology architecture - specialized platforms wrapped around the traditional P2P/ERP back-bone. Explore how you can make your organization's procurement technology eco-system future-ready with this approach.

What will be covered:

  • Challenges and gaps in traditional procurement technology set-ups
  • New generation of specialized platforms that have the potential to transform procurement effectiveness

  • Strategies for your organization's transition to the procurement tech stack of the future
