On 10 and 11 March 2016, the Marketplanet OnePlace conference was held. We had the pleasure to organize it in cooperation with the partners: City Handlowy, Hitachi Data Systems, Konsalnet, PwC, ELO, HRS. In one place, we were able to gather purchasing, finances and IT managers.
As corporate purchasing is becoming increasingly popular, there are many conferences and workshops available in the market. Marketplanet, from the beginning of its operation, has always endeavoured to be a step ahead, show new possibilities, solutions and adapt them to the Polish environment. We have constantly improved our products and made efforts to design the most innovative tools pursuing worldwide trends.
The aim of the Marketplanet OnePlace conference was to present new purchasing ideas and explore new areas of communication and cooperation for corporate purchasing. We used projects we have completed to illustrate the way in which the purchasing and finances are responsible for the entire Purchase to Pay process. Today, savings, automation or transparency of the process are not the only goals of a project. Clients are looking for comprehensive tools and expect all the areas of their businesses to carry out the P2P process. Companies increasingly benefit from the potential of the Internet. At Marketplanet, we focus on promoting OnePlace as a supplier cloud – an integration platform (purchasing systems, ERP, CRM) that allows for the exchange of information and documents. We are able to handle the entire P2P process, including the transfer of paper documents (e.g. invoices) into a digital form. Naturally, we become more and more engaged in the areas of big data, mobility, social media and financial services. In our opinion, these are the topics that will have a decisive impact on competitive advantage in Purchase to Pay. The era of simple savings, tough and often one-time negotiations is coming to an end.
During the conference, we put a strong emphasis on networking. Participants had the opportunity to exchange information in almost a start-up atmosphere. Additionally, the programme of the conference was marked with an incredible concert of the BOKKA band.
I would like to thank all participants for your active contribution to the conference. We are looking forward to seeing you during future events organized by Marketplanet.
