Venue: South Place Hotel


Procure-to-pay can be complex and costly process. Controlled chaos – a mix of paper and electronic forms – conducted in the glare of regulatory compliance. And it is wasteful, especially of data.

Digitalisation creates simpler and more transparent processes, scalable and dynamic, that allow for effective data analytics and drive consistent optimisation. We have the proof (and the pudding).

Join us to learn more about how Vodafone transformed its end-to-end procure-to-pay processes – reducing working capital, increasing revenue, and removing purchasing risks by applying process mining technology to turn process insights into action.

Join Meet the Boss, Celonis and a select group of fellow finance and operations leaders to explore how the Celonis Intelligent Business Cloud allowed Vodafone to increase procurement automation rates from 73% to 87%, avoid manual payment blocks, reduce rework by 92%, reduce maverick buying, and increase cash discounts all leading to multi million pound savings.
