Effective Supply Chain Finance

Brussels, Belgium, 5 June 2018
Countdown to conference

Towards collaborative, intelligent supply chain finance

Whether you are starting to implement a Supply Chain Finance programme or have an established one that you are trying to extend, join this event to hear about the latest innovations to move to the next level. Corporate peers and experts share their experience in an open and interactive way.

What’s on the agenda?

Innovative ways to track and control the physical supply chain combined with revolutionary technologies in the financial services are supporting the full digitalisation of trade processes. This transformation is also reshaping the relationship between buyers, suppliers and banks. Gone are the days of working in silos, with disconnected processes and conflicting goals. Visibility of the physical supply chain allows for more efficient and earlier initiation of finance offers but not only that.

The advent of AI, big data and leveraging analytics allow for different networks to collaborate, producing intelligent outcomes and multi-agent problem-solving. In Supply Chain Finance terms this means systems that can predict supplier’s behaviour, determining when they are most likely to be in need of cash as well as when companies will be in a position to offer them the best discounts. It means combining synergies to make the most mutually advantageous deployment of cash and funding globally across the enterprise. Becoming collaborating business partners is no doubt the way to go.

Join this intensive 1-day programme to discover how to:

  • Unlock cash from your account payables
  • Reduce costs across your supply chain
