Plante Moran announces fall 2014 webinar series on broad range of business, international and tax topics

Plante Moran‘s webinar series returns this fall with 13 new online sessions that focus on timely issues facing today’s business leaders. The 13 webinars (many of them will be delivered via video) cover a wide range of pressing topics related to  end-of-year tax planning, technology, health care, ERP and global business services.

There is no charge to participate in the webinars, which are approved for Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit. The fall webinars include:

ERP selection on the horizon? Think twice before doing it yourself
Tuesday, Oct. 7; 2-3 p.m. EDT

Ready for a new enterprise resource planning system? There are a number of critical factors to take into consideration when selecting and implementing an ERP system. For example, it’s important to understand this decision isn’t just about technology – it’s about people and processes as well.

Today’s global atmosphere – Are you fully informed to operate abroad?
Wednesday, Oct. 15; 2-3 p.m. EDT

Operating globally means contending with complexities, uncertainties and constant change. Whether an organization is thinking about or is currently operating outside of the United States, success abroad depends on staying informed of key issues, trends, best practices and strategies – everything from taxes and employee issues to minimizing risk and optimizing opportunities.

Just because you don’t talk about it doesn’t mean it’s not happening
Wednesday, Oct. 22; 2-3 p.m. EDT

The threat of fraud exists across every industry and within all areas of an organization; and the risks go far beyond potential financial loss. Fraud could compromise customer data and negatively impact a business’ reputation. Don’t become another statistic by waiting for fraud to occur.

Predictive analytics: It’s the intervention that matters
Wednesday, Nov. 5; 2-3 p.m. EST
Predictive analytics is the practice of extracting information from existing data sets in order to identify patterns that might predict future outcomes and trends. It is at the peak of its hype cycle in health care, but is it really “the next big thing”? Or is it being oversold?

Plante Moran experts will explore these questions, the concepts of predictive analytics, the use of predictive analytics in national intelligence settings and how these same concepts and technology can be applied to health care.
