Selectica to Present Webinar: Building a Holistic Business Case for Procurement Technology

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2015) - Selectica, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLTC) a leading provider of enterprise contract lifecycle management, supply management applications from source to pay, and configuration solutions, will be presenting a live webinar on May 28, 2015, at 9:00 AM PDT. Duncan Jones, Vice President, Forrester Research, will be the featured guest. Joining him will be Pierre-Marie Rallu, COO North America, b-pack, and Constantine Limberakis, Director of Product Marketing, Selectica, who will be hosting. Together, they will discuss end-to-end source-to-pay benefits and the technology roadmap from an application strategy to broad suites. Online registration is still available for this live event.

Lack of holistic and planned approaches in source to pay can create inefficiency and cause the procurement organization to seriously underperform. The root of the problem: lack of awareness, alignment, transparency and even agreement with other stakeholders. This hinders the financial justification for funding of procurement technology efforts due to an inability to clearly demonstrate ROI. 

Many of these issues can be simply resolved when broader source-to-pay approaches are addressed with specific, purpose-driven goals focused on the unique requirements of upstream to downstream procurement. When approaches are aligned, consistent expectations of savings and goals can help produce better insights and validate procurement's impact on the bottom line.

This webinar will be an in-depth discussion with Forrester on how technology will impact the strategic directions of source to pay. Topics explored will include:

  • Building a wider eProcurement application strategy as enterprise needs mature
  • Securing additional savings beyond squeezing suppliers' margin
  • Using financial justification to request funding for procurement technology
