PRINCETON, N.J. - Zycus, a world leader in Source-to-Pay Technology Solutions and longtime partner with the Institute of Supply Management (ISM), recently attended ISM Annual Conference at Indianapolis, IN as the gold sponsor. Held between May 15th to 18th, this years’ conference was focused on “Outcomes Matter”, a topic very close to the heart for Zycus, which focuses heavily on adding real-time value to global procurement teams.

Zycus Vice-President, Corporate Development, Richard Waugh mentions, "The Institute of Supply Management provides a well-organized platform every year for procurement and supply chain professionals to interact and learn from each other. It also offers Zycus an opportunity to share ideas and insights about how to leverage technology and provide bottom-line impact to procurement organization."

A key component of sustainable impact is the effective management and collaboration within its supplier base. Garry Christie, Director of Global Business Services, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), and Richard Waugh took this opportunity to speak about “Finding ROSA (Return On Supplier Assets) – Valuing and Managing Suppliers Strategically”. Attended by a huge gathering of procurement professionals, the session discussed practical strategies and implications of supplier risk management at an organizational level.

Apart from this, Zycus also launched the latest version of Pulse of Procurement series at the conference. The Pulse of Procurement is an annual research study on procurement challenges and industry trends. This year’s study focuses on major procurement pain points and relevant benchmarks which define the current procurement landscape and gives strategies to tackle the bottlenecks.
