Ever Wondered How to Reduce Invoicing Costs, Ensure Accurate PO's and How to Control Wild-Cat Purchases?

Sponsored by: ABB

Focused on:

  • Procurement
  • Innovation
  • Savings

Date: 5 July


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

Join ABB to find out how they changed the procurement game of retailers and municipalities around the world, with reduced invoice processing by more than 80%, delivering 100% of orders to suppliers electronically and upwards of 4% savings on total purchase spending

All organisations buy and sell. They are, therefore, part of a supply chain. The efficiency of that supply chain is a key factor in the performance and effectiveness of an organisation.

Today, even with modern communication capabilities, many supply chains are paper-based: purchase order, invoices, shipping manifests… This leads to:

• Failure to achieve contract compliance and negotiated savings
• Purchases based on stale product or service information
• Additional overhead to deal with invoice and PO mismatch
• Inefficient and error-prone transactions between you and your partners

This Webcast, featuring real word stories from around the globe will demonstrate how leading retailers addressed these issues. Axis is an innovative and proven platform that delivers frictionless purchase and supply interactions between trading organisations. It is an enabler for your organisation to become a best-in-class procurement performer.

During the Webcast we will show how the Axis cloud-collaboration engine transformed processes in a busy operational environment across three important areas:

Procure-to-pay processing
Supplier e-commerce storefront
Contractor Work Management

If you have ever wondered about how to reduce invoicing costs, ensure accurate POs or control wild-cat purchases, then please join us to learn more.

The webinar is 60 minutes long which consists of a 45 minute presentation/discussion and a 15 minute Q & A session.
