National Harbor, MD—October 1, 2012— GXS, a leading provider of B2B integration services, today announced that its annual Customer Forum event for B2B professionals has kicked off this week. GXS Customer Forum is at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center from October 1-3 and features more than a dozen sessions on best practices for managing B2B integration in the cloud.
Themed “Making Connections,” the event is focused on sharing experience and advice on maximising the value of B2B managed services and supply chain integration from some of today’s supply chain leaders. Among this year’s speakers are representatives from Agrati Group, Alstom, ArcelorMittal, Dow Corning, Godiva, Motorola Solutions, Inc., Roche Diagnostics and STMicroelectronics.
“With real-life examples from speakers addressing today’s hot topics such as supply chain risk, globalisation and integration in the cloud, GXS Customer Forum supplies us with the necessary tools to keep our business ahead of the curve,” said Dawn Haymond, head of process integration for North America and Latin America at Roche Diagnostics Operations, Inc. “We were excited to have the opportunity to connect with our peers to discuss best practices, share our own experience and learn more techniques that we can integrate into our own strategy for even greater success with B2B integration.”
“With many of the largest users of supplier connectivity and partnering solutions in attendance, I am excited to be presenting on the evolving e-Invoicing market at GXS’s Customer Forum,” said Jason Busch, managing director of research at Spend Matters. “With the truly rapid growth and changes of supplier networks on a global basis, including what these networks deliver today, it’s important for professionals to have a forum to explore best practices across all areas of supplier connectivity and spending, inclusive of both direct and indirect materials procurement. I hope to provide attendees with my perspective on what supplier partnering and collaboration will look like tomorrow, including e-invoicing and beyond.”
The 2012 GXS Customer Forum is an invitation-only event that offers attendees the opportunity to connect with their peers and learn to improve their B2B processes.
