About Kingdom Shared Service 2017

Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 is committed to streamline the Saudi public sector making it leaner, and more efficient at doing its job. A major step towards this goal is implementing a shared services strategy for government bodies led by a specifically designed shared services authority. The benefits of shared services however, are not just for the government to make use of with increasingly more businesses following suite. Saudi Arabia has a well-established history of implementing shared services in HR departments, the next steps will be to expand use into procurement, accounting, ICT and project management amongst others.

30% of Fortune 500 companies are already making extensive use of shared services in their businesses, they have seen 46% savings from their accounting departments alone not to mention the immeasurable benefits to good governance. Recent research suggests that implementing a shared services program pays for itself completely within approximately 20months-3years part of that, according to one study, comes from labour costs alone which was cited at 46%.  However, the benefits are more than just monetary; shared services, and by extension, process automation allows for better internal business processes and governance.

Kingdom Shared Services (KSS) is Saudi Arabia’s place to be to learn more about how shared services can be designed, implemented and developed into the next stage. KSS will look at how the shared services model can be exported to more businesses and government departments, ministries and local authorities. KSS is a professional industry leading platform that provide an in-depth understanding of shared services from the change management stage through implementation and right up to further expansion stages.

The ACM Interface+ Format

The ACM Interface+ conference format is designed to optimise the valuable and finite time our busy delegations can dedicate to being out of the office while also enhancing their enjoyment of the ACM on-site experience. Specifically tailored to our region of operations here in the Middle East, the Interface+ format maximises networking opportunities, facilitating the building of profitable relationships within the context of a dynamic, efficient and relevant learning environment.

ACM conference days, using the Interface+ format, have an earlier start than conventional agendas and conclude with a late lunch. The conference sessions are regularly punctuated by refreshment and networking breaks to allow for unhurried face-to-face interaction between peers, colleagues and business prospects. The mid-afternoon conclusion of our formal conference agenda allows for government representatives and busy executives to adjourn earlier in the day, having still enjoyed a full and rich programme of content. Post-lunch, ACM will offer additional, optional learning and networking opportunities in the shape of workshops, product demonstrations, technology launches, site visits, pre-arranged 1-2-1 business meetings and hosted receptions.

Interface+ makes timing sense for our delegates and business sense for our sponsors.
