Workshop: Digital Transformation in Procurement


Digital Transformation

The exponential speed of digital transformation is having a great impact on industries across all domains. This gives rise to the collection of huge amounts of data that can be studied, patterned and automated, driving Decision Making.


What about Procurement?

When we talk about Technology and Digital Transformation in Procurement, a lot of the work is being done by machines with phenomenal accuracy.

New digital tools are allowing professionals to automatically optimize inventory, to prequalify suppliers in rapid time and to automate price-benchmarking, among other uses.


About the Workshop

With the aid of new technology and data-driven decision making, Procurement has improved efficiency, advanced supplier interaction and improved cross-functional collaboration with R&D, Sales, Production and other internal departments.

During this workshop, we’ll explore, among other topics:

  •   Digitalization in Procurement – bringing value to customers
  •   Reading early warning signals from Suppliers
  •   De-risking the Supply Chain beyond Tier 1 Suppliers 
  •   New Skills  for procurement professionals

The agenda will build on the collective expertise within the EIPM network and will include a combination of best practice presentations and interactive sessions to explore what is done across different industries.
