On the fence about attending Spend Connect Live in Vienna? Here are some “must-see” sessions to help you decide!

The countdown is on!

In just two short weeks, SAP customers, partners, and employees will be packing for the trip to Spend Connect Live in Vienna. It will be a jam-packed three days of inspiration, innovation, and learning about spend management – from October 9 – 11, 2023.

If you are still trying to decide whether to attend Spend Connect Live, and the amazing location at one of the most beautiful cities in Europe isn’t enough, I have a list of must-see sessions designed for Finance and Procurement professionals.

With e-invoicing legislation continuously changing, inflation a stubborn and unwelcome guest, and sustainability a top and constant priority, Finance leaders have their plates full. Similarly, Procurement leaders must support by finding diverse and sustainable suppliers and ensuring that the lowest cost suppliers are being procured. In addition, both teams need to carefully scrutinize overall spend and ensure that invoices are paid accurately, according to contract terms, and in a way that best manages cash and working capital.

It is in the context of these challenges that we devised a number of sessions at Spend Connect Live that address your most pressing issues. SAP Business Network is your conduit for better collaboration with your suppliers, increased spend visibility and compliance, and purchase order and invoice automation. Attend these sessions to learn about the latest e-invoicing innovations and how SAP Business Network can help you address today’s finance and procurement challenges.
