How Third Party Logistic Operators Can Leverage B2B Integration for a Competitive Advantage
February 11, 2015
2:00 p.m. ET 

Register to attend here.

As a Third Party Logistics operator you’re caught in the middle between your clients and your client’s customers. The end result is a proliferation of multi-enterprise processes that rely on a continuous exchange of data to ensure the success of the operational activities they support. But how do you ensure the exchange of the underlying data is secure, reliable and timely? That’s where B2B integration comes into play which gives you the ability to exchange the order, shipment, receipt and inventory... data that is critical to your success.

This panel discussion will offer attendees an opportunity to hear from industry peers like Landstar, CEVA Logistics, and CSX Transportation on how they leverage B2B integration as a competitive differentiator. For these best-in-class Third Party Logistics operators it’s no longer just IT infrastructure. Get insights on their experiences maximizing the value of B2B integration, the decisions they made on whether to use an on-premise or cloud based deployment, the value they received and what the future looks like.

Your 3PL peers are taking B2B Integration to another level. How about you?

Sailing Downstream: Why Source-to-Settle Defines Procurement Transformation in 2015
February 19, 2015 
2:00 p.m. EST 

Register to attend here.

"Procurement transformation” has become a common theme for many Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) and other procurement leaders who are searching for an advantage in an increasingly competitive and complex business marketplace. While these transformations typically begin with a focus in either strategic sourcing or operational procurement, they are ultimately incomplete unless they extend across the full Source-to-Settle process. Don't leave this important job undone.

Join Andrew Bartolini, Ardent Partners' Chief Research Officer and Richard Waugh, VP – Corporate Development, Zycus Inc. as they discuss the strategies and approaches that Best-in-Class procurement departments have taken to complete their procurement transformations and make a larger impact on results and operations. Attendees of this webinar will

  • Learn the different approaches that Chief Procurement Officers take when planning and leading a transformation
  • Understand how collaboration and communication can be used to engage different stakeholders
  • Learn the five keys that leading procurement departments use to drive and maintain their program’s momentum

As an extra benefit, all webinar attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Ardent Partners’ brand new report “Why Source-to-Settle Defines Procurement Transformation in 2015”
