Amy Aves, Global Process Owner - Purchase to Pay, Oracle
Amy has had multiple roles since she joined Oracle in 1994. But since 1998 the one role that has remained consistent is that of global process owner. Since then she has been responsible for implementing standard processes and creating standardised processes and technologies, ensuring that the same version of systems were being used in the same way, and ensuring that once countries were migrated, they followed standardised practices.
Following this, once the countries were in, it was her responsibility to measure and monitor the success and review the performance with the centre itself, and then with the stakeholders to ensure that the centre was meeting their needs.
Amy is constantly looking at other functions that can be migrated into the SSO, and recently moved part of expense reporting into Romania. In addition to this, since stepping into her global role 10 years ago, decisions get made quicker and implemented faster.
If this wasn’t enough, she is also working with strategic procurement on the standardisation of terms in supplier contracts.
She is speaking at The Summit for Leaders in Finance Shared Services and Outsourcing 2011 in Dallas, Texas, in October 2011.
Amy is a member of the sharedserviceslink.com advisory board.
