The danger of talking about trends like digital and innovation is that the conversation won’t get specific enough to accomplish anything. In this webinar, Enlighta will focus on the intersection of digital innovation and professional services, especially their combined impact on supplier relationship management.

This is one of those critical topics – how is procurement supposed to vet the financial health of privately-held companies? There is no information available about them online and they often decline to respond to requests for additional detail. In some cases, it may even be cited as a reason not to work with smaller suppliers, depriving them from the opportunity to grow and procurement access to their innovation. In this webinar, RapidRatings and GE Healthcare will explain the available options for managing the financial risk of private companies.
July 20th, 11am ET
The simplicity of the three ‘measurable success goals’ listed in the description for this webinar belie their strategic importance to the organization and their influence on procurement’s (perceived) success. Presented by Dipan Karumsi, U.S. Procurement Advisory Lead at KPMG LLP, this webinar will cover using the three goals to help drive maximum business impact and ROI.
