Moving to Digital Shared Services

Session Description

Shared Services and Global Business Services leaders have always had a lot on their plates consolidating activities into regional and global centres whilst trying to standardise and improve their business processes. Now as we move rapidly into the digital age they face some tough additional challenges. They are being asked to use the latest digital tools to fully automate transaction processing, to significantly improve the customer and employee experience and add value to the organisation way beyond just reducing the cost of their SSC operations. Peter will explore how the best are facing up to this challenge.

The Future of Country Mandates

Session Description


Dealing with the accelerated pace of change in the field of e-invoicing and e-reporting is an exhausting challenge for businesses operating globally.

You will also discover how Tungsten Network with PwC's support navigates through this minefield and remains a front-runner on compliant invoicing for the benefit of your company.
