Welcome to EBG | Network and Online Goods Receipt Q&A Benchmark!
EBG have long experience from creating both real life meetings and online interviews and webinars. One thing is clear – there is a greater need for experience exchange than real life conferences can meet. And there are more people than usually go to a conference that could benefit from getting the same information at the same time.
Our answer to these possibilities and challenges are called Online Benchmark Sessions!
As always when EBG create a meeting, interview or conference we focus on content – enabling quality content during quality time. Apart from listening to great experiences you can ask live questions and participate in live polls, all in all giving you in-depth knowledge without leaving the office. The world has never been smaller.

Why is this an important question? Well, if you want to have control over what you buy, from who and at what cost – you may want to have control over if the goods/services were delivered accordingly too. Therefore the GR question is so interesting!
Imagine you have the best system ever with the possibility to control what you buy, from who and at what cost. You have set up 2, 3 or 4 way invoice matching with catalogues, PO demand, free text orders and invoice matching. How do you choose to set up goods/services receipt (GR)?
How can you ensure the holy grail “3 way match value based GR” (as someone in our network stated it) is enabled? Or is matching beyond 2 ways (PO-invoice matching) impossible to enforce in immature organizations as so many embarking on source to pay control are?
“Anyone can create a PO in a cloud solution – but enabling correct 3-way matching is really hard. It takes great knowledge in how the supplier invoices and preferably access to invoice data and of course price notification. The demand to do GR in the right period and before the invoice arrives is also really hard to achieve” is another quote from EBG’s network.
Welcome to an interactive couple of hours where EBG invite experienced peers and prominent system providers to share how they perceive the GR challenge. Get recommendations and an idea how customers choose to set up goods receipt (GR) as a vital part of end-to-end control.
Questions we ask system providers:
- How are system providers recommending you to set up GR?
- How are their customers actively choosing to enforce and improve GR structures?
Questions we ask you who attend:
- Are you using 2, 3, 4 or no way matching?
Make sure you ask questions! You can even send them in before the sessions.
