How are your competitors making e-invoicing a runaway success? [webinar]

August 29, 2012  |   |  Comments Off

Europe isn’t quite Brazil or New Zealand when it comes to e-invoicing requirements. But adoption is on the rise, and according to a recent Ariba survey of 184 corporates, a healthy 62% of companies are taking advantage of e-invoicing. The questions are:

  • How are they maximizing supplier conversion rates?
  • What industries are doing the best?
  • How do they ensure their e-invoicing programme achieves its stated objectives and becomes a strategic priority?

In this fascinating webinar we will explore the key results from the survey, and address additional questions like:

  • How does e-invoicing affect your “days to post”?
  • What are the key business drivers for e-invoicing?
  • How effective is your industry vertical at capturing early payment discounts?
  • How does the 2013 EU Directive on e-invoicing impact your organization?

We will then be examining 5 best practices to help you realise success.

Think suppliers get a tough deal? Join our debate

August 28, 2012  |   |  Comments Off

We believe that suppliers get a bad rap . They are forced into using systems and processes they have very little say over and even less control. This results in business being unnecessarily expensive and time consuming.

This is a topic we are passionate about at Tradeshift. It’s why we created Real Supplier Choice. And now, to move the discussion on, we are bringing together a panel of industry experts to debate supplier choice in more detail.

Why have we reached this situation? How can we change things? What are the practical steps that suppliers, buyers and technology vendors can do to make a difference?

Come and join our Google Hangout on Wednesday 5th September at 5pm BST / 12pm ET / 9am PT to discuss all this and more

We’ve pulled together some leading lights of the industry to share their views:

Christian Lanng, CEO, Tradeshift
Thordur Erlingsson, CEO, InExchange
Howard Scott, Digital Operations Director,
Maex Ament, Chief Product Officer, Taulia

If you can’t make the Hangout itself then we will make it available as a YouTube video after the event. We hope to see you there!

You’re invited!
