EBG | Network - A cross functional, end-to-end business network focusing on improved sales and forecasting, increased spend under management and financial supply chain control

Vattenfall AB is owned by the Swedish state and is one of Europe’s largest generators of electricity. Achieving instant insight into spend and savings has been a challenge with about 28 000 employees, thousands of transactions and billions in direct and indirect spend across countries.

During a webinar on June 2nd at 11:00 AM CEST, Sahar Shirzad, Researcher | BI Analyst Procurement Development at Vattenfall AB will share her and her organizations roadmap towards instant spend data and actual and possible savings insights.

As so many organizations Vattenfall operate in an environment with multiple ERP systems and multiple data sources across multiple countries. Spend data used to be gathered via Excel from different departments making it hard to create one single, up-to-date, truth available for all.

In this webinar you will learn how Vattenfall created a strategy for procurement analytics development across countries, measuring both direct and indirect spend. Further they will share how they executed the strategy and what will happen next.

EBG | Network, Vattenfall & Qlik

EBG | Network startades 2010 av Anna Bjärkerud med ambitionen att samla och dela erfarenheter kring elektronisk affärsprocessutveckling bland Nordiska företag och organisationer. Fokusområden är köparens önskan att styra och kontrollera flödet från behov eller inköp till betalning, leverantörens från order till betalning. Eftersom denna process i stora bolag är extremt funktionsindelad anser EBG att det behövs funktionsövergripande forum som hjälper bolag att effektivisera och automatisera för att realisera förbättrade resultat, ökad spårbarhet och nöjdare kunder och leverantörer. EBG driver idag även den årliga konferensen Source 2 Pay Summit

As one of few networks, EBG aims at creating opportunities to learn from your peers across functions and across industry borders. We talk about the networked economy and what impact current and future private and public sector development bring to the table for any CFO, CPO, CIO, SSC manager or any other person with the mandate to bring change to their organisation.

We host a couple of blogs:

And run a couple of yearly networking days:

We do interviews, write articles, make surveys, run webinars and much more - because we believe that all business and organisational development comes from changing peoples behaviour, looking at business processes in a more holistic way and sharing experiences across industry borders.
