How likely is it that you’ll stop what you’re doing at any point in the day and think to yourself: Wow, our current Capex approval workflow process (or CER/AFE process) is really great.
For most organizations with meaningful Capex budgets, it’s quite the opposite: it’s the source of frustration, concern, even anger.
It takes too long, wastes too many hours, and – perhaps most importantly – leads to budgeting decisions that could be a lot better, or opportunities missed.
In this session, we’ll look at 10 ways a true, purpose-built Capex approvals system will get you thinking wow, our current process is really great. Topics include:
- The benefits of dynamic routing and rerouting
- Ensuring that ROI and risk criteria are uniformly considered across project proposals
- Having an approval “archive” for a reliable audit trail and valuable repository of knowledge for future projects
So join us, and see for yourself the power of “AHA” and what it can do for your organization.
