Published August 15, 2018 at 9:57 AM

The Maximo Utility Working Group (MUWG) will be hosting their fall conference themed, “Making it Work, Aligning Maximo with Business Needs, Business Processes and Business Value” from September 24 - 27 in Portland, Oregon. The  event and sessions allow users in the working group to share their experiences and learnings around maximizing their investment in IBM Maximo. On Wednesday, September 26th, at 2:45pm, Southern Company’s Tim McAlister will be discussing  their use of Procurement automation in combination with Maximo.

During the session, entitled, “Procurement automation (eCatalogs, eProcurement, contracts and auto release)”, Tim will be speaking about the Southern Power Supply Chain Management Group’s recent implementation of procurement automation for their marketplace eCatalog solution. Tim will be providing a high level overview of the project while highlighting and demonstrating the integration between Procurement and Maximo,

The BuyerQuest platform provides companies a single buying channel,  simplifying the purchasing process through an easy to navigate marketplace that feels more like a consumer website than business purchasing site. The technology allows for seamless integration with Maximo, including automated processing from Maximo to BuyerQuest and back.  

BuyerQuest is pleased to be a Gold Sponsor of this year’s MUWG meeting.  Our team of experts will be available to answer any questions regarding the BuyerQuest platform and how it streamlines the purchasing process.
