Procurement is increasingly being expected to become more influential in the overall business strategy – specifically in the areas of mitigating risk, creating a competitive advantage and driving growth.
Strategic procurement & sourcing ERP software
Procurement ERP Software – that supports the complete end-to-end process.
For supply chain leaders, strategic procurement software and sourcing optimization play a vital role in mitigating immediate risks and planning for future challenges. Success depends on finding the optimal balance to satisfy all stakeholders: the right equilibrium between supply and demand, inventory on hand and cash in the bank, strategic partnerships but firm supplier management.
There is no doubt that the COVID pandemic has tested manufacturers and contingency and business continuity plans to the fullest, with 60% of companies having reported supply chain disruptions. However, for those who rely on materials sourced from volatile markets, subject to shortages and price instability, managing change is the norm, with shifts in supply chain priorities compelling procurement to keep pace by adapting a flexible, modernized approach in support of manufacturers and distributors achieving optimum growth and market share.
