Reimagining procurement: Why digital helps accelerate success

Supply chains have been forced to re-evaluate their IT strategies and migrate to digital over the past few months. They have been thrust into a new reality by COVID-19, where the speed of execution and digital solutions have been one of the critical answers to business survival.

Most procurement departments realise the need to automate the source-to-pay processes to attain fundamental economic efficiencies. True digital transformation happens through rethinking processes. It’s about vision and transition before it becomes a technology decision. The cost of IT upkeep, downtime and processing time spent on manual tasks and data organisation is taking its toll. However, achieving the full benefits of digital transformation can be daunting.

The large and growing market of suppliers vying for services has created more pressure. Selecting suppliers requires due diligence and hands-on testing of potential services. There are governance and compliance standards to uphold. Organisations are back to

Consumer confidence rebounds in September

Consumer confidence rebounds in September

Consumer confidence staged a major comeback in September, rising 15.5 points in The Conference Board’s monthly index to reach 101.8.

That is the highest figure since the COVID-19 pandemic took hold in March, but still significantly below February’s reading of 132.6.

“Consumer Confidence increased sharply in September, after back-to-back monthly declines, but remains below pre-pandemic levels,” Lynn Franco, senior director of economic indicators at The Conference Board, said in a statement.

The latest figure, released Tuesday, was the first time consumer confidence bounded above the 100 mark in six months. It has been hovering largely in the mid-80s, though a brief spike in June brought it to 98.3.

Because consumer spending accounts for about two-thirds of the U.S. economy, consumers’ faith in economic conditions and their willingness to spend is a key indicator of economic health.

Banks must think about their crypto risk exposure, says FinCEN director

Kenneth Blanco, director of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), has said that banks must think about their cryptocurrency risk exposure.

Speaking at a virtual conference on Tuesday, Blanco said FinCEN, a bureau of the U.S. Treasury Department, and banks’ examiners would assess the effectiveness of their anti-money laundering (AML) programs.

So banks need to be asking themselves, “What baseline controls do we have in place to identify customers? Do we have institutional or peer-to-peer virtual currency customers? How does our financial institution interact with emerging payment systems? Do we have the tools we need to identify and report potentially suspicious activity occurring through our financial institution?” said Blanco. “All of these questions go back to the policies and procedures in place to mitigate risk.”

The director went on to say that if banks are not thinking about these issues, it will be clear when examiners visit them.

Last year,

(Reuters) – Oil prices will stay near current levels this year as rising novel coronavirus cases threaten to slow the pace of demand recovery and counter output curbs by top producers, a Reuters poll showed on Wednesday.

The survey of 40 analysts and economists forecast benchmark Brent crude averaging $42.48 a barrel in 2020. That compares with an average of $42.54 this year and last month’s forecast of $42.75.

Brent is projected to average $50.41 in 2021.

The 2020 U.S. crude price outlook was at $38.70 per barrel versus $38.82 predicted in August. It has averaged $38.20 this year.

“As long as there is no working vaccine available, the main risk for oil prices is lower-than-expected demand,” Hans van Cleef, senior energy economist at ABN Amro said.

Staffing firm hiring 250 for remote customer service jobs

A global staffing firm with an office in Greenfield plans to hire 250 people from the Indianapolis area for remote customer service jobs through the holidays.

Randstad US says the full-time jobs initially will begin as work-from-home positions due to COVID-19, but employees could be required to eventually work from a call center in Greenfield. Therefore applicants must be able to commute to the site.

Randstad is representing a client in the health care field. Veronica Iniguez, area vice president for Randstad US, declined to identify the firm but said the available positions would entail helping patients enroll in health plans during an open-enrollment period.

The positions pay up $15.50 per hour, depending on experience. Top performers could be considered for permanent positions with Randstad’s client in as little as four months, Iniguez said.

Randstad will take applications for the positions during a virtual career expo taking place on Sept.
