Chief Financial and Procurement Officers are under pressure to transform, optimise and automate finance and procurement. They face many challenges in making the Source-to-Pay (S2P) process as efficient and cost-effective as possible.
In this fast-changing world, new capabilities are required and the future of S2P relies on technology, big data, and digital networks to create efficiency. Forward-looking companies are integrating AI and automation into their S2P operations to optimise costs, improve profitability, productivity, cash flow and compliance through the entire process.
To help finance and procurement transform S2P, CorporateLeaders and IBM are hosting an intimate peer-to-peer virtual roundtable keynoted by Coca-Cola for up to 15 Finance and Procurement Leaders to discuss how automation, AI and digital transformation can boost S2P.
