Meeting addressed recent developments in e-procurement and supply chain solutions.

Enporion, a provider of supply chain solutions and professional services, recently held its "Customer Council" meeting in Boise, Idaho. The biannual council serves to provide valuable customer input for product enhancements and company strategy, as well as providing its customers with the most recent developments in supply chain solutions and outlook for the future.

Andrew Bartels, vice president of research for Forrester Research, delivered an overview of e-procurement with his presentation titled Squeezing More Value From Your e-Purchasing Efforts. The report provided recommendations on applying technology solutions to specific portions of a typical eight-step spend management process that would yield the optimal return on investment.

Examples discussed included automated spend analysis, contract life-cycle management (CLM), and electronic invoice presentment and payment (EIPP). The presentation is available to supply chain professionals at the newly redesigned Web site found at www.enporion.com.

Other topics covered included spend analytics, strategic sourcing, commodity price trends, an update on the new D.O.E. rule regarding distribution transformers, and compliance. The event concluded with roundtables for sharing best practices. The next council meeting will be held in November in Tampa, Fla.
