About Source 2 Pay Summit 2018
Applied end to end experiences and technology with the basic idea that One function nor One person alone can – no matter what strategies are written – achieve real change. In this case change is focused on sourcing, procurement and finance as part of business strategies. Why source to pay? Simply because more and more of company revenue is invested externally at the same time as companies are merged and operate in more global environments. How do you go about making sure that every dollar or euro or what ever currency that is spent ad value to the business?
EBG | Network know that it is really hard even creating a base line on spend and forecast, budget and cash flow and that many strategies that are written never come true.
