About

These half day events bring together a panel of experts to discuss how organisations are creating and developing a digital workplace - one that reduces paper, streamlines and automates business processes, improves mobility and transforms the visibility, control and security of information. “Getting information moving” will be a main theme of the events and we’ll discuss how your organisation can do this, automatically and digitally.

Wherever your organisation is in its journey towards the digital workplace, these events will help you improve and develop your digital workplace strategy. We’ll be covering hot topics including process automation, self-service portals and finance automation and the role they play in shaping your very own digital workplace. We'll provide practical tips and best practices to support you through the digital journey. You'll also have plenty of time to network with speakers and other attendees.

Attending this Conference is a must for the main influencers and decision makers in organisations. CEO’s, CFO’s, CIO’s and Heads of IT, HR and Operations set and drive the organisational vision and goals to create and shape a digital workplace, one that will dramatically reduce paper usage and dependency, create business process efficiencies, increase staff productivity and job satisfaction, unlock and leverage valuable data currently trapped or lost within an organisation and deliver it to the right people at the right time to improve organisation performance through performance and analytics.

Expert Session – Niall McConnell, Finance Automation Consultant, Convergent

This expert session hosted by Niall McConnell from Convergent, explains why the finance department is a great place to begin any organisations digital transformation journey and how the benefits of an automated and digital “procure to pay” process can be showcased to other functions and departments as a benchmark of how a well executed digital strategy can benefit the other functions of an organisation such as HR, IT, Operations, Sales, Quality and Compliance.
