    Corcentric Conversations | Jennifer Ulrich: Increasing Procurement Maturity and Agility in Parallel

    Hosted By Kelly Barner of Buyers Meeting Point

    The disruptions of the last year have made a strong, independent business case for procurement teams and professionals to become more agile. The fact that each organization is in a different place on their maturity journey, however, means that agility can take different forms and require different skillsets. Each procurement organization will have to define what agility means in the context of their company and make investments to achieve it.
    In this Corcentric Conversation, Jennifer Ulrich, Senior Director of Advisory at Corcentric, joined us to discuss whether there is a connection between a procurement organization’s maturity level and their ability to support the enterprise through increased agility.

    Corcentric Conversations | Patrick Baumgardner: Change Management for Implementation Success

    Hosted By Kelly Barner of Buyers Meeting Point

    All projects have two sides: the technical side and the ‘people’ side. Both need to be actively managed for the project to be a success. The more people that will need to use a system in order to realize the intended ROI, the more investment the implementation project team needs to make in change management. It is critical to stress that focusing on compliance alone will not necessarily drive the desired behaviors from a group of users, whether they are inside or outside of the enterprise. Instead, a deliberate effort must be made to foster collaboration and understanding through engagement and two-way communications. In this episode of Corcentric Conversations, Patrick Baumgardner, a Senior Consultant at Corcentric, joined us to discuss the investments procurement should make in change management to ensure it is an asset rather than a stumbling block in technology implementations.

    Corcentric Conversations | Mark Joyce and Jeffrey Grosman: The Value of Guaranteed Order-to-Cash Business Outcomes

    Hosted By Kelly Barner of Buyers Meeting Point

    Given the complexities all companies have faced in 2020, there are two common goals that, while simple, are top of mind regardless of industry or size: 1. To have cash flow, and 2. to have predictable cash flow. Fortunately, an improved order-to-cash (O2C) cycle can address both by improving alignment with contracts and remaining compliant with payment terms. In this episode of Corcentric Conversations, Mark Joyce, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Corcentric, and Jeffrey Grosman, Corcentric’s O2C Practice Lead for North America, joined us to discuss the impact that guaranteed O2C business outcomes can have on company performance as a whole.

    Corcentric Conversations | Jennifer Ulrich: The Competitive Advantage Associated with a Diverse Supply Base

    Hosted By Kelly Barner of Buyers Meeting Point

    Supplier diversity initiatives represent a prime opportunity for procurement to act upon many of the strategies most important to beyond-savings value creation: collaborating with stakeholders, innovating with the supply base, securing the buy-in of the executive team. Rather than being a secondary priority in the aftermath of pandemic-related supply chain disruptions, supplier diversity, and localization initiatives have risen to the top in terms of priority and visibility. In this episode of Corcentric Conversations, Jennifer Ulrich, Senior Director of Advisory at Corcentric, joined us to speak about the importance of supplier diversity and the many forms of value they can deliver to companies and suppliers alike.

    Leading companies know the value proposition of a well-run, digitally-enabled procurement function.

    Corcentric Conversations | Lee Allen: Leveraging eInvoicing to Improve Cash Flow While Building Business Resilience

    Hosted By Kelly Barner of Buyers Meeting Point

    eInvoicing might have been thought of as a ‘nice to have’ element of procurement technology – that is until the whole world was suddenly working from home, virtually overnight. Now, companies that did not transform their invoicing processes to get away from paper are struggling, and those that had already done so are reaping the digital rewards. In this episode of Corcentric Conversations, Lee Allen, Senior Vice President of Order-to-Cash for EMEA at Corcentric, applies his extensive experience in B2B credit and trade finance to the challenges and opportunities of the present moment in business.
