Retaining visibility at the top of an organisation is key to a company’s growth and sustainability. Clear oversight of the company’s workings allows the managing team to make more informed and faster decisions.

The discussion will dive down to the root cause of why companies lose visibility as well a explore and debate the preventative measures that can be deployed. Our experienced chair, will tackle this in the context of the Software Industry and cover three main discussion points.

  •  Visibility in growth
  • Visibility in business model transformation
  • Visibility in compliance regulation

Growth – As organisations grow, many additional complications come to the fore. What worked for a 50 person organisation does not always work for a 500+ person organisation. More employees, more orders and much more data.

Business Model – Moving from a perpetual licensing model to subscription-based model has short-term and long-term financial implication for software vendors. How are software vendors managing this transition and what are these implications? We will be looking at what senior peers are currently doing to retain control and manage this transition fully as they adopt a SaaS based approach.

Compliance – Controlling compliance is crucial: 42% of end-users do not know when their licenses are up for renewal. Visibility not only enables software vendors to ensure customer compliance, but also presents an opportunity to pro-actively upsell and renew customer agreements. What are the latest techniques being deployed to regulate and enforce compliance?

If any one of these three points are relevant to you, or indeed you struggle to retain control and visibility over your software company, then you must attend this event. It’s a great opportunity to meet, network and get to the bottom of core business issues in an informal and unstructured discussion.

I look forward to welcoming you on the evening. If you have any queries please do reach out to me and I will be delighted to help you.

Best Regards, Sam
