ATLANTA, May 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRGX Global, Inc. (Nasdaq:PRGX), a business analytics and information services firm and the world's leader in recovery audit, is a major sponsor of this year's Fusion conference, the flagship event of IAPP – the association of International Accounts Payable Professionals. Fusion is the first event focused on the full spectrum of financial operations and will be held May 8 through 12 in Orlando, Florida.

In addition to exhibiting at the event, PRGX will be hosting four educational breakout sessions. These sessions are representative of the breadth of PRGX's service offerings – or 'routes-to-profit' for its clients – and will highlight the company's thought leadership in the areas of recovery audit, fraud and spend analytics. The educational sessions include The Future of Retail Recovery Audit; Detecting and Preventing Fraud for AP Professionals; Managing the End-to-End Source-to-Settle Process to Maximize Business Value; and Taking Savings Identification to the Next Level: Getting into the Weeds, which focuses on identifying savings through spend visibility tools.

In The Future of Retail Recovery Audit, PRGX's Chip Reid, vice president client services, will be reviewing changing stakeholder expectations and other industry trends that are defining the next generation of recovery audit.

The Detecting and Preventing Fraud workshop will be hosted by Michele Edwards, leader of PRGX's fraud analytics practice. In this session, participants will gain hands-on experience in identifying incentives, pressures, and opportunities for disbursement fraud in today's business organizations. Furthermore, the session will focus on identifying fraud schemes and scenarios as well as on controls to prevent and detect fraud.

"Our break-out sessions at Fusion truly cover the full financial operations spectrum," said Alexandra Gobbi, vice president marketing and communications for PRGX. "From procurement and spend analytics, to recovery audit and fraud prevention, the IAPP Fusion event offers incredible synergies with the 'source-to-audit' focus of PRGX."

Additionally, PRGX is playing into Fusion's 'Hollywood Blockbuster' theme with The Hunt for Le Diamant Vert – a story of loss and recovery. "Attendees are invited to learn more about PRGX's services and capabilities – all of which are geared toward discovering hidden profits. The green diamond represents those hidden profits," explained Gobbi.  Attendees are also invited to participate in PRGX's Discovery Poll, the results of which will be shared throughout the event.

"We are extremely pleased that PRGX continues to play such a prominent role in our Fusion event," said IAPP-IARP-NAPP-TAWPI president and CEO Tom Bohn. "PRGX has been a strong supporter of IAPP throughout the years, and to have the company as a Fusion sponsor, exhibitor and speaker shows the commitment PRGX shares for providing educational resources for financial operations professionals."
