  • Contract Audit: The Power of Prevention
    Contract Audit: The Power of Prevention
    Jon Daniells, CCa Audit Director Cc, US | Sara Clark, Director of Product Management, US Recorded: Dec 11 2019 60 mins
    Boosting the value delivered from your Contract Audit Program

    Traditionally, supplier contract audits have principally focused on finding past billings errors and working to recover those overbillings. However, as organizations gain a more sophisticated appreciation for the deep intelligence gained through contract audits, they are now demanding new strategies that are designed to locate errors sooner and prevent the same mistakes from being repeated. Historical recoveries, while still a desired outcome where they exist, are seen as a byproduct of the central objective, fixing problems that return even more significant value through recurring future cost savings.

    In this webinar, PRGX contract audit experts Jon Daniells and Sara Clark will recommend strategies for enhancing the value of your organization’s supplier audit program, while outlining the steps to help you recover lost profits sooner. Key takeaways from this webinar include:

    - Pathway to prevention: Learn the broad spectrum of where overpayment problems originate and how best to identify and fix the root causes

    - Supercharging your results: How evolving the maturity of your contract audit program will exponentially expand value to your company

    - From reactive to proactive: Key steps to building a program which identifies issues quicker, leading to immediate and sustained cost savings

    Banks are facing increased commoditization pressure. In order to combat that pressure, they are focusing on improving their product offering to compete with peers, but also focusing on enabling their client-facing teams to deliver a differentiated client experience.

    To achieve both of those goals, Banks are ramping up their spend on technology investments to stay ahead of competition, but struggle to prioritize where to invest, whether to build or buy, and how to measure success.

    Join Seismic and FinTech Futures, and guest speaker Dharmesh Mistry, to learn more about the investments that Banks are making in enabling their client facing teams.

    These teams, particularly Relationship Managers, are the messengers of your Bank’s brand and product offering to clients.

    Now, it is as important as ever to ensure these teams are as educated, efficient, and effective as possible when interacting with clients and potential clients.

    RMs, Treasury Sales, and other product specialists should be up to speed on the Bank’s products, position relative to competitors, and brand messaging. They should also be supported with the tools and resources to communicate this information to clients, within the guardrails of compliance.

    After this webinar, you will walk away with:
    •An understanding of enablement trends in Banking
    •A prioritization framework for technology investments
    •Details on how to enable your client-facing teams to deliver a better client experience

    How will investors respond to green fiscal policy and a new wave of action on climate targets from the world’s central bankers? Join us to find out what’s in store for 2020 as central banks and prudential regulators ramp up action on climate risk and sustainable finance.

    To kick-off 2020, RI is bringing together global central banking leaders to consider how ESG and climate risk integration into central banking and monetary policy could influence the investment decision-making of global investors.

    As fiscal policy makers and macroprudential regulators within the Network for Greening the Financial System get down to business, investors are waking up to the potential for climate-aligned monetary policy that could nudge economies towards alignment with the 2 degree targets committed to in the Paris Agreement. With major economies like China, India, and Mexico getting serious about financial system alignment with climate targets, who is leading?

    From the integration of climate risk management into the work of supervisory authorities to the incorporation of sustainability criteria into central banks’ portfolio management functions for the world’s largest treasuries, many central banks and prudential regulators are moving faster than the investment community. This webinar is a chance for the global investment community to better understand what’s in store and to discuss investor responses to the greening of central bank balance sheets.
