May 4, 2010 – Recovery Audit Technology Leader Lavante Speaking and Exhibiting at IAPP Conference

Company Introducing New Supplier Information Portal – Lavante Connect™

San Jose, Calif. – May 4, 2010 – Lavante, the technology-leading provider of profit recovery and supplier information solutions to Fortune 1000 companies, today announced it will be presenting at three sessions at the IAPP Fusion 2010 Conference May 9 – 13 at Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas. It also will be introducing its new supplier information portal, Lavante Connect, a SaaS-based, automated self-service supplier portal.

A strategic partner with IAPP, Lavante supports efforts to educate and empower payables and procurement professionals. Its three session topics include: best practices for vendor file management, an overview of supplier portals, and how to use social media to enhance job performance.

Lavante will be demonstrating its profit recovery audit applications along with its new Lavante Connect supplier portal. The new portal automates supplier on-boarding, TIN matching and management, and on-going vendor file management, while providing real-time visibility into supplier information across the organization.  With provisions of the recent health care legislation containing new 1099 requirements, the TIN matching and management capabilities of Lavante Connect are particularly timely for corporations as they face the new challenge of managing TINs for a much larger portion of their suppliers.

Lavante Connect is the next step in Lavante’s continuing delivery of innovative technology that strengthens the supplier-customer relationship while delivering cash returns through recovery services.
