BELLEVUE, Wash., Oct. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Icertis, the leading provider of enterprise contract lifecycle management in the cloud, today announced CEO and Co-Founder, Samir Bodas, will be speaking at the CPO Exchange, taking place October 16-19 in Kissimmee, FL. Samir will present, "Finding Contract Lifecycle Management Nirvana," demonstrating how best-of-breed contract management can increase agility, flexibility and efficiency of the procurement process. The CPO Exchange attracts senior procurement executives from leading Fortune 1000 organizations, and is designed to spark conversation on critical issues impacting the procurement industry today, such as stagnating budgets, new legal demands and supplier innovation.
"Traditional procurement software was built in a paper-based era with a narrow view into cost savings and sustainability," said Samir Bodas, CEO and cofounder of Icertis. "Today's procurement leaders need more than just the financial aspects of vendor relationships, they require a 360-degree view into those suppliers and an automated approach. The supplier contract has become more strategic and partnership oriented, enshrining qualitative and quantitative commitments, obligations, and other partnership aspects, than purely focused on legal terms, cost savings, and service levels. In this new world a contract lifecycle management system is no longer a nice-to-have, it's a must-have."
