The Spend Control Summit 2016 to Feature Sopra Steria & PA Consulting, as Keynote Speakers

PROACTIS, a global Spend Control and eProcurement solution provider, is pleased to announce Sopra Steria and PA Consulting will be presenting keynote sessions at The Spend Control Summit 2016, one of the largest spend management industry events in the UK.
The Sopra Steria presentation “Rethinking the Path to Finance and Procurement Transformational Change” is designed for executives looking to grow revenue, cut costs and make their businesses more resilient. In this session, Sopra Steria will provide self-evaluation questions to help delegates consider their transformational priorities and discuss four ‘hot topics’ that can significantly enable Finance and Procurement functions to achieve their objectives.
  1. Adopt digital innovation
  2. Use cloud technologies and delivery models to drive business efficiencies
  3. Ensure the right people do the right things in the right places whether centrally, de-centrally or outsourced
  4. Connect Finance and Procurement teams with the right intelligence to drive real value
The PA Consulting presentation “Setting the Standards for Excellence” will focus on how top tier Finance and Procurement functions operate at lower cost, but also make more effective use of their resources. In this session PA Consulting will investigate what sets top performers apart: cost efficiency, faster turnaround, sharper insight, and leaner operations. Delegates will learn how leading teams continue to drive waste and inefficiency out of their process, leverage technology and sourcing in innovative ways, and are more aligned with internal customer priorities.
