Hundreds of procurement professionals came together in Scottsdale, AZ from September 19-21 for networking, education and problem solving at Procurecon Indirect West 2016. Procurecon Indirect West provides attendees with best practice strategies for procurement transformation and evolution. At the event participants learned how to improve supplier relationships and integrate strategic suppliers into their organizations, incorporate new technology tools into their solutions mix, and staff teams for maximum results.
During Procurecon Indirect West, Advito’s Lesley O’Bryan, Vice President and Principal, led a series of roundtables to educate attendees on how face-to-face meetings combines with virtual collaboration to create a Total Collaboration Management strategy.
If you visited our booth you likely saw our friends from Cisco joining the event on screen, showcasing their latest in virtual collaboration technology. The technology is part of our new Total Collaboration Management practice, a topic that created quite a buzz throughout the event as attendees were able to watch live as a magician performed tricks – from California!
Lesley wrapped the event up with a keynote presentation. During the presentation she shared the benefits of adopting a Total Collaboration Management strategy which includes travel program cost savings, increased productivity, increased retention and a reduced environmental footprint.
We’ll be with Procurecon in November next, at Hotel Palace Berlin. See you then!
